High Functioning Autism Definition and Description

High functioning autism research has given many professionals insight into this disorder. Many believe it should be considered a disorder of its own. It’s seen as different from Asperger’s syndrome, in which many sufferers are better able to function than those with autism disorder.  High functioning autism, HFA, does not occur in people whose IQ is less than seventy-five. Therefore these are people who are able to enter and remain in school until graduation.  People with HFA have a wide range of strengths and weaknesses like any person with autism; they are just able to get by better. Socially, those diagnosed with high functioning autism, are inept. They try, but the social niceties that children are taught simply do not stick. Therefore, they can inadvertently make social errors without realizing that what they have done is improper. For example, they may just walk into a home, or room, without knocking and not understand someone being upset about it. Social pleasantries like hello or how are you may go unused or unresponded to.  They could be characterized as socially naive and so they are best shielded from others who may take advantage of them. Sensory overload is definitely a problem even for those who are high functioning. Party situations or just being in a big group of people may prove to be too much for them to deal with.  They may overreact to loud noises. Trying to get a job is another area of difficulty since making eye contract is still a problem. If they are not able to present well then this leads to a lack of income which...

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Definition

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder definition – A mental disorder thought to be biological in nature consisting of poor attention span and impulsive behavior uncharacteristic for a person’s age, which may or may not be accompanied by hyperactivity.   ADHD has been the topic of a great deal of spirited discussion in recent years. While numbers vary, it is estimated that about 7% of all school age children and approximately 5% of the adult population suffer with this condition. ADHD is a major contributing factor in academic underachievement in children, teens, and young adults. It has also been linked to poor job performance in adults. Slightly less than have of all people with the condition have low self esteem, depression, anxiety, or problems with authority.   The three basic symptoms are:   *Inattention/distractibility: This is the primary symptoms required to confirm a diagnosis of ADHD. Many people are under the impression that a child or adult who struggles with inattention does not have the ability to focus. This is not necessarily true. There is a great deal of research supporting the hypothesis that the ADHD personality can focus very effectively if a topic sparks their interest.   *Impulsivity: Impulsivity is the inability for one to effectively regulate behavior. The ADHD personality with impulsivity will act without thinking. Examples of this would be to constantly interrupt the flow of conversations, difficulty standing in line, or taking unwarranted or unneeded risks.   *Hyperactivity: When discussing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder definition the one symptom that seems to be foremost in the eyes of many parents is hyperactivity. Their children seem to have been...

2007 Debate of Definition of Modern Liberals

Indeed, like many I am critical of those who proclaim themselves at a higher moral level than others in order to use that political high-ground to condemn and build their base. I have been concerned that Modern Day Liberals are far removed from the traditional definition of what a Liberal truly is supposed to be. Now if you are a liberal I understand that you disagree with my premise that liberalism is a disease and must be cured or the political correctness could take down our nation. So then, let us debate shall we? Here is the definition of Liberal; lib’er.al 1. Adjective a. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas, free of bigotry. b. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded. Now then, lets look over all the miss spellings, as that is irrelevant to the discussion. In the first item [1(a)] it states; Free from Bigotry. But this is troubling because the bigotry with those that call themselves Liberals is so overwhelming and the amount of hate speech so alarming that this definition does not fit the “modern liberal” in the current paradigm, it simply does not resemble what is happening in the real world. Therefore those who call themselves Liberals either at not by definition or the definition is irrelevant to the current present period and reality. The Hate Speech is unbelievable and all new ideas are accepted by liberals as long as it agrees with them. If not, then…well just look at the number of...

2007 Debate on Definition of Modern Liberals

Recently I have gone on record stating that Modern Liberalism is a disease spreading across America and asked the simple question; Can it Be Stopped? Indeed, modern liberalism today is not that of the definition of our Founding Fathers and their sense of what liberalism was. Further the dictionary definition is nothing similar to the direction that this modern liberal mindset is taking our nation. No one said liberals were diseased. The main point of contention is relatively simple. Liberalism is a disease to a Nation’s Ongoing Viability. Just like a disease threatens the health of the Human Bio-System. Not all diseases kill humans, but the cause them to run inefficiently and cause other issues. Liberalism, that is to say modern liberalism, not the liberalism of some of the Founding Fathers, but the current paradigm of political correctness, which embodies the Modern Liberalism of today is having a chilling affect on both the Health and Wealth of the nation. It is making the United States unhealthy and putting it into a weak state just like a disease would. Indeed, this is not to say that liberals are diseased in anyway. Perhaps that was not understood in the beginning of this Forum, but Liberalism is not a person, it is a concept you see? And the humans who cling onto the “Modern Liberalism” as virus or disease vectors. Much like Mosquitoes spreading SARS, West Nile or Malaria. They are simply spreading the disease or condition of ineffectuality, inefficiency and un-healthiness throughout the land. The United States is therefore infected with this virus or disease. And the question is can the...

Kundalini Awakening Definition and the Path

Kundalini Awakening – the sure shot method for awakening of the kundalini. Before we discuss about kundalini awakening… we need to understand the meaning of kundalini! The kundalini Shakti is that hidden positive energy stored in every human being by awakening which every human being can reach the level of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed. The awakening of the kundalini is possible by practicing the right Yoga and meditation. In the normal circumstances the awakening of the kundalini is supposed to happen within a period of 11 million manifestations in the form of a human being. A serious seeker of spirituality always desires Kundalini awakening at the earliest. Why? Every true seeker of spirituality understands that unless the kundalini awakening occurs… one shall not be able to reach the level of Nirvikalpa samadhi and the stage of self realization. Kundalini awakening is a hundred percent must before one can gain enlightenment in this life. Apart from practicing the Shavasana pose in Yoga and also Neti as advocated by Maharishi Ramana… one needs to practice absolute celibacy for the kundalini awakening to occur. Kundalini awakening is not something which can be taught in form of books… it only comes from experience. As we proceed on the path of pure spirituality while practicing absolute celibacy and meditation… we shall find one-day that our kundalini awakening has occurred. Kundalini energy stored within our spine slowly recoils itself. It is as if God is directly lifting us straight up for us to realize God with a short period of time. It is a very noble experience for every true seeker...
