Girl With Autism & Katy Perry Duet – ‘Firework’

Girl With Autism & Katy Perry Duet - 'Firework'

Girl With Autism & Katy Perry Duet – ‘Firework’ Subscribe to Hollywire | bit.ly Send Chelsea a Tweet! | bit.ly Follow Hollywire! | bit.ly Katy Perry performs live on stage with a talented little girl — in support of autism, and it’s pretty darn inspiring! It’s always so amazing to see celebrities doing good — and this story I found to be quite motivational. A little girl named Jodi has struggled with autism her whole life and expresses herself through music. In a performance from “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs” — Jodi is joined onstage by her idol, Katy Perry, as they do a little duet to “Firework” After the performance, Katy tweeted about her experience and how inspired she was by it. So what do you think about this performance? And also while KP is known for writing inspirational music, which of her songs do you relate to most!?!

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that one in 88 children in the United States has been diagnosed with autism, a developmental brain disorder that the CDC also reports is five times more common in boys than girls. VOA’s Melinda Smith reports that research shows that intensive behavioral therapy can help autistic children make significant improvements if they are treated early. New approaches are being used to diagnose and treat this still-mysterious disorder.

Undiagnosed Autism Aspergers in Adults

Undiagnosed Autism Aspergers in Adults

Autism/Aspergers syndrome is a developmental disorder. Autistic children grow up to be Autistic adults. Some people think “how can you be autistic, you are nothing like Rain man” well most of us on the Autistic spectrum are not exactly like him Although I do now Autistic people that share some of his ability to remember important dates and huge amounts of facts and data that can be recited instantaneously. Autistic symptoms are based around the central Autistic diagnosis criteria called the “Triad of Impairments” This encompasses a) Social and emotional difficulties b) Language and communication difficulties c) Flexibility of thought (imagination) Recognising the Triad of Impairments in my experience is just the starting point, and as many people affected by Autism will tell you, Autistic spectrum disorder can be a hugely complicated condition to understand. And even though there are common symptoms that Autistic people may share, Not everyone with Autism display all the symptoms all the time. Then when you add in other factors such as personality trait’s enviromental factors and co-existing conditions then trying to find a “one approach fits all” mentality to working with Autistic people is not going to work. I sometimes think that everyone on the Autistic spectrum is practically a sub category in themselves. Steve

Question by Carter B: What specialist is best for treatment of pediatric ADHD?
My 5-year-old child has been diagnosed with ADHD. He has been seeing a psychologist, and his pediatrician has been trying to manage the ADHD with medication. I would like to get a second opinion on the treatment plan from a specialist, but I don’t know what type of specialist I should be looking for. Psychiatrist? Pediatric Neurologist? Other? What type of specialist is best suited to treat ADHD?

Thanks!

Answer by dsaenz30
hit the damn kid! it has nothing to do with ADHD it has to do with your parenting. i didnt pay attention when i was a kid, my dad kicked my ass, you bet your ass i payed attention the next day in school. a psychiatrist is only going to screw the kid up for life. he’s 5 and you’re making him see a shrink??
what the hell is a matter with you
