  • Training Program For Cerebral Palsy - 1,548 words
    This training program is for Bob, a male eleven year-old student with cerebral palsy. This requires him to use a wheelchair most of the time although he is able to stand and walk for short distances of approximately 30 feet when there is something to hang on to for stability. With more muscular training, that distance could be increased greatly as the only reason he cannot continue is fatigue and therefore the risk of falling or other injury. It should be noted that an assistant will be needed for this program. Bob also has limited extension at the knees and limited dorsiflexion at the ankle. He is underweight for his height as he is 4'11" and only 77 lbs. but this could be due to the lack o ...

  • Aids - 611 words
    My cousin Christopher was 16 years old when he died. Christopher had been fighting the disease known as AIDS throughout his life, and I didnt know. I had always known when I was young that Christopher was sick in some way. His right hand was malformed and he had to receive a variety of injections each day from his mother. But as young as I was, I was never afraid of Chris or his sickness. Chris and I were friends as much as we were family. We would play spies together and hide on his steps as we watched our parents play cards. To me, Chris was a normal child who just needed some extra medicine. But after his death, I learned that his condition was much more serious then it appeared to be. Th ...

  • Inclusion In The Classroom - 1,303 words
    Inclusion mainstreams physically, mentally, and multiply disabled children into regular classrooms. Back in the sixties and the seventies, disabled children were excluded all together from regular classrooms. Currently, the federal inclusion law, I.D.E.A. (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), addresses children whose handicaps range from autistic and very severe to mild (I.D.E.A. Law Page). From state to state the laws of inclusion vary. The laws may permit the special needs children to be in regular classrooms all day and for all subjects or for just one or two subjects (Vann 31). Other times the state laws allow those with special needs to have aids with them to help them in the r ...

  • Fertility Drugs - 944 words
    In todays modern society, your average family is very expensive. Now add oh, say, six more kids to that expense. Without corporate sponsorships, public aid, and donations, maintaining a livelihood with this size brood would be nearly impossible. So why do couples pay out thousands of dollars to fertility drug companies in the hopes of becoming mired in this sort of situation? The draw of having one perfect child is overwhelming to couples who are unable to produce any naturally. Fertility drugs make this impossible dream come true for some people. A tiny sliver of the people who subject themselves to all the poking, prodding, and injecting of fertility drugs actually find themselves pregnant ...

  • Lupus - 1,168 words
    Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease which causes inflammation of various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood and kidneys. The body's immune system normally makes proteins called antibodies to protect the body against viruses, bacteria and other foreign materials. These foreign materials are called ANTIGENS. In an autoimmune disorder such as Lupus, the immune system loses its ability to tell the difference between foreign substances (antigens) and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against "self." These antibodies, called "auto-antibodies" react with the "self" antigens to form immune complexes. The immune complexes build up in the ...

    ... ine ounces, they already knew she was perilously premature. Still, the doctor's soft words dropped like bombs. " I don't think she's going to make it," he said, as kindly as he could. "There's only a 10-percent chance she will live through the night, and even then, if by some slim chance she does make it, her future could be a very cruel one." Numb with disbelief, David and Diana listened as the doctor described the devastating problems Danae would likely face if she survived. She would never walk She would never talk She would probably be blind She would certainly be prone to other catastrophic conditions from cerebral palsy to complete mental retardation And on and on. "No! No!" was al ...

    In a 1988 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, an article titled "It's Over Debbie" describes how an anonymous doctor administers a fatal dose of morphine to a woman dying of ovarian cancer (Anonymous, 1988). In a 1989 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, ten doctors associated with the nation's leading hospitals and medical schools declare their belief that "it is not immoral for a physician to assist in the rational suicide of a terminally ill person" (Wanzer, et. al., 1989).

  • Latimer - 863 words
    On Sunday, October 24, 1993, Robert Latimer killed his daughter, Tracy Latimer. Robert Latimer placed Tracy in his truck and ran a hose from the exhaust pipe into the cab of the truck. Tracy was killed by carbon monoxide poisoning and Robert Latimer confessed to the murder. What makes this case so unique and debated is that Tracy Latimer had cerebral palsy. Robert Latimer has been in court several times and has only served minimal time in jail. On November 16, 1994, he was first convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to life in jail with no parole for ten years. This ruling was overturned due to a technicality in the case. The second conviction occurred on December 1, 1997. Rather t ...

  • A Decision To Make - 1,146 words

  • Animal Communication - 1,358 words
    Throughout this course of study, the concept of language as the demarcation between animals and humans has prevailed. Further, as we have seen in our class readings, many claim that it is through language that our "consciousness" and "cognitive" skills are developed. Accordingly, these skills are necessary for us to interpret and conceptualize our world. What this infers is that because we have these skills and the "brute" animals do not, animals do not possess the ability to analyze or think about their world. When presented in this manner, I was almost convinced that this was a plausible representation of mental development. However, I found that I still had a nagging feeling that it could ...

  • Studies On Augmentative Or Alternative Communication - 1,924 words
    After speech is acquired, we use verbal and nonverbal communication to manipulate our environment. We communicate to give and receive information, to express intentions, beliefs and feelings. We communicate to solve problems, to entertain and to interact. How can we communicate when we cannot speak or understand speech? The solution is called Augmentative or Alternative Communication (AAC), a broad field that teaches alternative forms of communication to enhance the lives of the disabled. AAC is the refinement of communication modes that are not widely used in our society to individuals whose disabilities prevent them from speaking or writing as effectively as the norm. Essentially AAC can b ...

  • Febrile Siezures - 1,904 words
    By Herbert Macomber 1. What is a febrile seizure? Febrile convulsions (FC) or seizures (FS) are clonic or tonic-clonic seizures that most often occur in infancy or childhood, mainly occurring between four months and six years of age, with fever but without evidence of intracranial infection, antecedent epilepsy, or other definable cause. That is why they are often referred to as 'fever seizures' or 'febrile seizures.' Most of the time when children have a seizure, or a convulsion, it's caused by fevers with a rectal temperature greater than 102 degrees F. Most febrile seizures occur during the first day of a child's fever. They occur in 1-5% of all children, and therefore febrile convulsions ...
