Ultrasound image of the thyroid gland in obese children

Obesity as a disease of affl uence also affects younger children. Numerous observations suggest a link between excessive body weight and thyroid function disorders.Subclinical hypothyroidism has been diagnosed increasingly frequently in patients with obesity. A growing number of papers also point to morphological changes of the thyroidgland in the ultrasound examination in obese children. These reports mainly concern changes in echogenicity. The present paper discusses the most important

Parental internalizing symptoms as predictors of anxiety symptoms in clinic-referred children

Introduction Anxiety disorders are prevalent among children and may have long-term negative impact on individuals’ personal, social, and academic functioning (1). Several factors may influence the development and maintenance of anxiety in children, including genetic, physiological, temperamental, parental, and family-context related risks (2-4). Increased knowledge about factors that influence the level of anxiety symptoms in children is needed to improve clinical practice, as well as to

“Less stress”: a pilot study on a cognitive behavioral treatment program for anxiety in children with autism spectrum disorders

Introduction Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterized by early-onset core difficulties in social- and communication skills and unusually restricted, repetitive behavior and interests with an estimated worldwide population prevalence of about 1%, affecting more males than females (1). Most children with ASD have one or more comorbid conditions like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), anxiety- and mood disorders, implying a further

Early Intervention Orientation and Mobility: A Western Australian Perspective

Early intervention Orientation & Mobility (O&M) training is a key component of the Western Australian Department of Education’s Vision Education Service. Children who are blind or have vision impairments are introduced to O&M skills, including the long cane, as soon as they are able to walk. A description of the service is provided, with some basic concepts and ideas for O&M specialists working with very young children. A key factor in the success of this program is

In 2010, there were about 20 million measles infections reported with 0.14 million deaths (Simons et al. 2012). The death toll surged to approximately 0.16 million in 2011, with 95% of deaths reported from developing countries (WHO 2013). Presently, 45 million new measles cases were recorded, with one million deaths per year (Li et al. 2015). In 2011, measles

The Missing Link: A Collaborative Approach to Early Childhood Orientation and Mobility

The current role of the Orientation & Mobility (O&M) instructor routinely involves working with young children (birth to 6 years). The inclusion of this population to the caseload of O&M instructors brings with it unique challenges. Young children’s primary means of learning comes in the form of play, yet O&M traditionally tends to focus on skill specific instruction. For young children who are blind or vision impaired the ability to move out into space independently and

). More than 40% of children with ADHD have at least one comorbid mental disorder (51), and children with ADHD are generally at higher risk for both internalizing problems (e.g., anxiety or depression) (52, 53) and externalizing problems (e.g., deficits in social communication) (44, 54). Swanson et al. (44) found that adolescent externalizing behavior mediated the link between childhood hyperactivity problems (ADHD) and young-adult non-suicidal self-harm whereas adolescent internalizing behavior

Analysis of methionine synthase (rs1805087) gene polymorphism in autism patients in Northern Iran

Autism is characterized by impairment in reciprocal communication and speech, repetitive behaviors, and social communication. The genetic and environmental factors play roles in the pathogenesis of autism. It was recently shown that the genes involved in the folate/homocysteine pathway may be risk factors for autistic children. One of the genes that may be the risk factor for autism is Methionine synthase (MTR). MTR is responsible for the regeneration of methionine from homocysteine. The aim of

Novel Application  of Spherical Microphone Array Sensor  with Three-Dimensional Directivity

Mixed sounds can be separated from multiple sound sources by utilizing a microphone array and signal processing. We believe that promotion of interest in this technique can lead to significant developments in future science and technology.  Consequently, in order to experience this technique, we designed a language game for children called “KIKIWAKE 3D” that uses a sound source separation system with the aim of arousing children's interest in this technology.
