Female brother

Posted by Sansara Evans Jun 4, 2020

This business of connection, whether through a leash or no, is very significant, and is an excellent indicator that the creature attached to the other end is a pet, no matter how unlikely. Images of St. Margaret of Antioch (a sort of female Jonah, who probably never existed at all but who is nonetheless a favorite of mine) often show her with a fearsome dragon curled at her feet, from whose belly, according to her legend, she rose unharmed. In 1525, Girolamo Savoldo took this imagery the logical step further when he created a portrait of a matronly Italian noblewoman about to rise from her reading to take her eager greyhound for a walk. Renew life.There he is, in the bottom left-hand corner of the painting—one of the traditional places for pets to find themselves—joined to his owner by a chain looped around her waist. Only when you register his strangely frilly ears do you realize who this “pet” and owner are meant to be.

 

We have an almost constant experience of this type of physical connection with our pets, which of course means that they have an almost constant experience of contact with us. You might say the clue is in the name here, with “pet” being both noun and verb. This includes flourishing brush and comb to groom them, as if we were their animal, rather than human, parent; but then thousands upon thousands of us also brush our pets’ teeth, as if it’s they who were human instead. The fluidity of who is what in the relationship of pet and owner, the way in which each side contributes to it, the overlaps in behavior and the mirroring in our experience of each other recur over and over again, as true for an owner a thousand years ago as it is today. We choose them; but they seem to choose us, too. We make a noise to communicate with them; they make a noise to communicate right back, even if neither party, frankly, has a clue as to what has been said. We love them; they behave with trust and affection toward us in turn.

 

And we lose them, but they lose us, too. And it is our pets, our companion animals, who in turn make that fascinating thing the animal’s companion out of us.

To add even more variety to the mix, by no means all these definitions need be met all the time. As I researched this book I was often asked whether horses and ponies qualified as pets. They certainly don’t share domestic space with us (something granted even to St. Margaret’s dragon) but they are named, cared for, and communicated with, and anyone who has ever ridden a horse will know how profound the physical connection with them becomes.

Human activity

Posted by Sansara Evans Jun 4, 2020

If you were to ask my own mother now about the same event, that is without a doubt the detail she would remember most vividly: the focus of that pair of ewes, their fleeces also bright with snow, on their offspring, and the inevitable parallel between their role and that of the woman carrying their lambs downhill toward shelter and warmth. The fact that animals reflect back at us so many aspects of ourselves, the universal and the individual, is yet another part of our conjoined history. We also have the words “petty” and “petit” or “petite,” all three related one to another, and negotiating meaning between being little and being of little account. Standing desk There is to pet, as a verb, meaning to pat or play with or fondle, and to be in a pet, or pettish, is to give way to the kind of behavior indulged in by the petted when that attention is taken away.

 

Our human activity around that word has expanded it enormously. Pets, after all, are made by us—they don’t come into being on their own. That should make deciding what a pet is or isn’t a simple matter, except that we not only define them, we define the definitions, too, which makes it anything but. This is rather fitting, in my view. Animal studies, which is where our activities as pet owners place us, is so new a field and is growing so rapidly that it can still almost get away with defining itself as it likes, so why should definitions of its subjects be fixed, either?

So: a pet is an animal we bring indoors—except when we don’t. It is an animal we never eat—except when we do. It is an animal we name as an individual, but not quite with a human name, except when it is. Its relationship with us is individual and unique—just as are our relationships with each other. It is yours—your cat, your dog, your parrot, your pig. It can be a hedgehog or a horse. It is a creature to whom we present belongings that don’t belong. It is animal-animal, distinct from us, who are human-animal, except that historically human beings have been kept as pets, too—the court dwarf in Europe, or in South America where the Aztecs kept human albinos in menageries, treating them as the kind of curiosities they would themselves come to be seen as by the Spanish conquistadores. It is a creature for whom the boundaries between human and animal have become blurred; and where it is we who do the blurring. We feed them in our kitchens, where we ourselves eat. They sleep with us on our beds, something that for most of us is a privilege granted to but one other member of our own species, but with our animals it is an intimacy granted without thinking (and certainly without being asked).

Spider-man

Posted by Sansara Evans Jun 4, 2020

The strongest indicator for being a pet owner in adult life is to have had pets in childhood, but my adult life had also included an unplanned-for, peripatetic stage, of living emotionally as well as physically in rented space, where the less I was responsible for, I felt, the better. So while I was working on Red: A History of the Redhead, I was petless for the first time in my life, and writing that down, I share the astonishment of the writer Elizabeth von Arnim contemplating her own petless state at the beginning of her 1936 autobiography, All the Dogs of My Life. (“This, when I first began considering my dogs, astonished me; I mean that for years and years I had none.”3) Now that period too was done with, and here I was with a permanent roof once more over my head, and under that roof there was a lack. Sitting on the sofa with my laptop on my knees, I wanted to be interrupted. I wanted to have an animal come in and make the sort of noise I could interpret as asking me what I was doing. I wanted a head to be pushed into my hand if I let it dangle to the floor. I wanted to have some other creature in my life to be concerned about. What I needed, I decided, as many writers had done before me, from the ninth-century scribe who immortalized his cat, Pangur Bán, all the way through Joachim du Bellay (sixteenth century), Christopher Smart (eighteenth century), Alexandre Dumas (nineteenth century), and Ernest Hemingway and Colette (twentieth century), to name but five off the top of my head, was a cat. A sensible middle-aged cat who would understand that her mummy, or parent, or owner, or guardian or caregiver or indeed companion, or whatever term is most acceptable to you, had to go out to work and who would be content to engage with the world through a window. What I came back with from the local animal rescue center were two half-starved, half-bald, tiny little scraps of cat, one of whom, the moment I opened the cat carrier, shot into the kitchen, ascended the kitchen cupboards like Spider-Man, and took refuge behind the microwave, and the other of whom, just as smartly, galloped into the bathroom and wedged herself under the loo.

What is a pet? The dictionary definition speaks of “any animal that is domesticated or tamed and kept as a favorite, or treated with indulgence and fondness.” Samuel Johnson (noted cat lover) in his Dictionary defined “pet” in 1755 as “a lamb taken into the house and brought up by hand”; something orphaned or abandoned, and needing our human intervention if it is to survive at all. It’s a dialect word, from the Scots and the north of England, where the long winters and unpredictable springs still engender such tender care—thinking of a childhood Easter holiday on a Yorkshire farm sets loose at once the memory of watching the farmer’s wife striding down from the fell, wrapped up until she was as inflexible as a roll of carpet against the pelting sleety snow, and with her arms full of sooty-faced and sooty-footed lambs, still a little bloody from their birth cords. I remember how their black feet bobbed like musical notation against the whitening front of her khaki mackintosh and the whitening landscape.

Why do we see these changes in diagnostic criteria and concepts? Each iteration of the diagnostic manuals attempts to respond to the growing body of research, as well as trying to improve diagnostic processes. An example of the former is the decision to collapse the distinction between Asperger’s disorder and autistic disorder. A large body of work suggested few meaningful differences between these groups when current intellectual ability was equivalent (e.g. Eisenmajer et al., 1996; Macintosh & Dissanayake, 2004). Indeed, an influential study of diagnoses given across a range of expert clinics in America showed that the best predictor of which diagnosis was given (Asperger’s, Autism, PDD-NOS) was not any characteristic of the individual being diagnosed, but which clinic they went to! (Lord et al., 2012a). An example of a change in criteria reflecting ease of clinical use is the collapsing of social and communication criteria; it is hard to think of any piece of social behaviour a clinician might look for/ask about that does not involve communication, and vice versa. The overall aim of the changes in DSM-5 was to move to a system where a broad category diagnosis was accompanied by a detailed description of the individual’s strengths and needs, rather than trying to squeeze people into specific categories they didn’t necessarily fit.

Because the DSM tends to be more influential in research and therefore on psychological theory we will use this as the framework for subsequent discussions.

 

The variability in diagnostic manuals is nothing compared to the variability of presentation in the autistic population. When identifying autism, clinicians must be alert to the fact that the same feature may be manifest in dramatically different forms between individuals. For example, communication difficulties could mean that an individual is entirely non-speaking, speaking a great deal but mainly by echoing, or speaking fluently but with an atypical approach to conversational rules or understanding of non-literal language (e.g. irony, metaphor). Socially, a young autistic child may seem oblivious to others, while another individual on the spectrum may be keen to make friends but be unsure how to do so, making approaches that seem odd to neurotypical peers. Likewise, restricted and repetitive behaviours could mean lining up toys, spinning and flapping, a very ‘black and white’ thinking style, or might be evident as an immersive and impressively detailed interest in organic chemistry. One relevant dimension is clearly the presence or absence of intellectual disability (technically defined as an IQ less than 70 on a standardised assessment, accompanied by difficulties with daily living skills), but it is simplistic to suggest that IQ level alone determines how features are manifest.

As an example, let us consider the communication delays which are so prevalent in autism (Tager-Flusberg et al., 2005). A non-speaking autistic child may present with a significant intellectual disability which has contributed to their difficulties acquiring speech. Another non-speaking child may have no such intellectual barrier, but instead, their communication could be associated with anxiety-related mutism. Another factor which plays into this characterisation is the extent to which a feature presents obstacles in daily life. If either child can learn to communicate, for example via independent use of a text-to-speech device using visual symbols or Makaton signs, then this apparently profound difference might be minimally disabling (at least in environments where those communication modes are understood). Likewise, a specialist and all-consuming interest in geology could be something of a hindrance when trying to chat up a potential romantic partner (unless they are also a geologist!), but a boon when seeking employment in the mining industry.

 

 

 

Figure 3.1 The autistic constellation

In this three-dimensional space, we illustrate IQ scores, spoken language and a sensory feature often experienced by autistic people, as orthogonal dimensions. All data are hypothetical only. Autistic people may be located in every available point in the resulting three-dimensional space, but there is the potential, if we measure the right things, to identify clusters where features often overlap.

One attempt to visualise this complexity is shown above, where we try to illustrate autism as a constellation, rather than a spectrum.1 Here we show how a specific feature of autism (in this case, sensory hyper-sensitivity) might be plotted with intellectual ability and language profile. Autistic people, with a diagnosis, may locate themselves anywhere in the resulting three-dimensional space. Their exact location would further vary with context and across the lifespan. This space can be reproduced with different measures on each axis, using features which have relevance to theory, features more important for everyday life, or both in combination. For example, we might plot satisfaction with social relationships and against the number of social relationships and level of anxiety. Importantly, in this case, having few social relationships might cluster together with high relationship satisfaction and low anxiety. This group of people might be characterised as happy with a small number of friends, reflected in low anxiety scores. Another group might have few friends, but high anxiety and low satisfaction with their relationships. Could helping them achieve more social contact lower their anxiety? A third group might have high satisfaction, large amounts of social contact and high anxiety. Perhaps having a big social circle is both rewarding and stressful – could a better balance be achieved between the two?

These examples illustrate that it is important to contextualise any such measurement within an individual’s own priorities – working with allies to identify these where the person themselves may find it hard to self-advocate. In the previous example, provided an individual is not at risk as a result of their relative isolation, a small amount of social contact should not be characterised as a sign of impairment, as in the first cluster described. The key take home message is that autism, both conceptually and in terms of lived experience, is manifest in complex interacting domains. To discuss the ‘autistic spectrum’ in a linear fashion, or to attempt to measure ‘severity’ vastly over-simplifies and misrepresents the reality. Where a measure of support need is relevant we propose using exactly that terminology – as it is in the DSM-5: e.g. Level 3: requiring very substantial support.

3. Making a diagnosis

Reliance on loosely defined diagnostic criteria presents challenges to differential diagnosis, risks of mis-diagnosis and difficulty matching a diagnosis with a relevant support package. Measures have been put in place to limit these problems. In the UK, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) have both published criteria for a robust diagnostic process for autism. This should include multi- disciplinary assessment, direct observation of the individual across settings (e.g. clinic, home, school) and the use of standardised assessment tools. The widely used Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (now ADOS-2, Lord et al., 2012b) and Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI-R, LeCouteur et al., 2003) are two such standardised diagnostic measures using direct observation and clinical history, respectively. Nevertheless, concerns remain about diagnostic practices. These tools are lengthy and costly to obtain and train in, making them impractical for low resource settings. Open-access diagnostic tools that are brief and can be administered by a range of people, are urgently needed, especially when one remembers that the vast majority of autistic people live in low- and middle-income countries. The utility of existing diagnostic tools for diagnosis in adulthood has also been questioned, as has the influence of such measures on the gender balance of diagnosed individuals (more on this later in the chapter). Despite flaws in the process, it should be emphasised that one function of the clinical diagnostic process is not only to offer an autism diagnosis when appropriate but also to take the opportunity to get to know the individual and their family. An in-depth diagnostic process has advantages, placing the clinician in a strong and informed position to make a diagnosis and, ideally, signpost relevant information and access to services for the future. Although we note that this is an ideal, rather than a reality, for many people, at the same time preliminary evidence indicates that having a diagnosis may yield benefits in terms of improved quality of life and reduced stress for the families of autistic people (McKechanie et al., 2017).

At present, a reliable, clinical diagnosis of autism is rare before the age of 3 years, though some argue it is possible as young as 18 months. This is primarily because the types of social behaviours that are characteristically different in autism (according to the diagnostic criteria noted earlier) do not emerge reliably in typical children until around three years. Moreover, restricted and repetitive behaviours are common in all children at about two years old (Leekam et al., 2007a). However, there is substantial interest in the possibility of pinpointing earlier indicators of autism. The search for very early signs that would allow one to predict which children would turn out to have autism, has been prompted by two different concerns. Practical considerations have pressed for earlier diagnosis in the hope that very early intervention might produce benefits on early stage outcomes like onset of language. Theoretical considerations urge the early identification of autism in order to explore the causal direction in development – for example, do differences in processing of faces lead to or result from difficulties in social interaction? The emergent findings on early signs will be reviewed in Chapters 4 and 7.

A relatively recent phenomenon is that people have begun to self-identify as autistic, often later in life and sometimes prompted by the diagnosis of a child in the family. There is little or no research evidence so far on the validity or consequences of this choice. However, it is certainly easy to understand why many people might recognise autism in themselves but either not feel the need for an external confirmation by a medical professional, or actively refuse to undergo a formal diagnostic evaluation that ends in being labelled with a ‘disorder’ (Kapp et al., 2013). At the same time, self-identification does raise concerns. Are there individuals who would not be independently identified as autistic, merely seeking to align themselves with a group that seems to be getting a certain amount of public attention? Are people who would benefit from mental health support mis-identifying the causes of their feelings? These cases are hopefully in a small minority. Nevertheless, the phenomenon of self-identification presents challenges to academic research, not least in efforts to estimate prevalence.

4. Prevalence estimates

How common is autism? Understanding this is crucial for service provision planning, including budgeting for the economic impact of autism, which is estimated to be very high in the UK (Knapp et al., 2009) and USA (Buescher et al., 2014; Lavelle et al., 2014). Kanner and Asperger both described the condition as rare. However, current prevalence estimates in Western countries tend to hover around 1% of the population. There is considerable global variation – a meta-analysis cited rates from 0.3% to 1.2% with a median rate of 0.6% (Elsabbagh et al., 2012) and called for more epidemiological work in low and middle-income countries. It is virtually impossible to trace the precise roots of this variability, but it is likely that differences in diagnostic procedures account for much of the range. In particular, we can see that those countries with less developed healthcare systems consistently produce the lowest prevalence estimates. Cultural differences likewise impact decisions post-diagnosis (Mandell & Novak, 2005) and should be taken into account within, as well as between, countries.

Accounting for the dramatic changes in autism prevalence estimates over time has been the focus of considerable media attention and academic effort (Fombonne, 2005). A range of headline-grabbing accounts have been put forward including the effects of pollution, changes to diet and, famously and tragically, vaccines. While it is known that there are environmental factors that contribute to autism – the condition is not 100% heritable – there is no robust evidence to support any of these accounts. In the case of the role of vaccines, this hypothetical causal factor has been thoroughly, rigorously and conclusively disproven (Jain et al., 2015; Taylor et al., 1999, 2014). Instead, variation in prevalence estimates of autism can probably be attributed to a combination of the following factors.

First, the diagnostic criteria for autism have changed dramatically since autism was first enshrined in diagnostic manuals (as ‘infantile autism’ in ICD-8, 1967; ‘childhood schizophrenia’ in DSM-I and II, and then ‘infantile autism in DSM-III in 1980). Specifically, they have broadened to admit a much wider variety of individuals under the diagnostic umbrella. Alongside this change, there has been a dramatic rise in awareness of autism, not just in the public but among medical professionals. If you visit your family doctor now to discuss concerns about your child’s development, autism will be a potential explanation on everyone’s radar (at least if your child is a boy!) in a way that was not the case 30 or even 20 years ago. This growing awareness, combined with broadened diagnostic criteria, may have given rise to a degree of diagnostic substitution as well. As autism diagnoses have increased, diagnoses of global developmental delay or intellectual impairment, have declined. This would imply that there is no absolute increase in the numbers of affected individuals, merely in the way they are being categorised. A fourth facet of this general process of raising awareness and widening categories, has been an increase in identification of autism in populations where that diagnosis was previously not considered. Diagnostic rates in adults are rising sharply, as adults with intellectual disability are re-assessed for autism as well, and as others start to recognise autism in themselves. Anecdotally, there seems to be a specific phenomenon of parents, and sometimes grandparents, seeking a professional opinion for themselves, following their child’s diagnosis.

Finally, in some cases differences in prevalence may result from differences in methodology. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA recently published an estimate of 1 in 68, far exceeding any previous figure. However, the methods employed in this study have been criticised. There was no direct assessment involved – instead the estimate was based on prevalence of what appeared to be autism-linked features in the case notes of children and young people referred for evaluation by education or clinical service providers.

Is autism prevalence still increasing? There are a couple of UK studies that suggest that prevalence has reached something of a plateau over the last two decades, stabilising after the introduction of new diagnostic criteria in the early 1990s (Baxter et al., 2015; Taylor et al., 2013). Whether the recent changes in DSM-5 and ICD-11 will affect prevalence again remains to be seen. In addition, adult diagnosis and diagnosis among women and girls seem to be undergoing a recent sharp increase, which may not yet be represented in the latest epidemiological data.

ALTHOUGH WE KNOW autism has a genetic foundation, leading to neurobiological differences, it is diagnosed on the basis of a set of behaviours. The key reason for this is that, despite attempts, no reliable biological marker has been found. A reliable marker must show adequate sensitivity and specificity: meaning that it must be found in virtually all members of a group, and it must be exclusive to that group. At the moment, the best biomarker candidates we have for autism resemble attempts to identify which UK region you are from based on hair colour. Yes, there are group differences in prevalence of red hair between Scotland and other UK nations, but red hair is not found in a large enough percentage of the Scottish population to be sensitive and is found too widely elsewhere to be specific.

 

Our reliance on behaviour to identify autism leads to challenges for the field, as we will see in this chapter and beyond. Interpreting changing prevalence estimates or identifying meaningful sub-groups is extremely hard given the variability in how behavioural diagnostic features have been defined over time, and the potential differences in how they are applied in different settings.

 

• Persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts, as manifested by the following, currently or by history (examples are illustrative, not exhaustive) 

• Deficits in social-emotional reciprocity, ranging, for example, from abnormal social approach and failure of normal back-and-forth conversation; to reduced sharing of interests, emotions or affect; to failure to initiate or respond to social interactions.

• Deficits in non-verbal communicative behaviours used for social interaction, ranging, for example, from poorly integrated verbal and non-verbal communication; to abnormalities in eye contact and body language or deficits in understanding and use of gestures; to a total lack of facial expressions and non-verbal communication.

• Deficits in developing, maintaining and understanding relationships, ranging, for example, from difficulties adjusting behaviour to suit various social contexts; to difficulties in sharing imaginative play or in making friends; to absence of interest in peers.

• Restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests, or activities, as manifested by at least two of the following, currently or by history (examples are illustrative, not exhaustive; see text): 

• Stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, use of objects, or speech (e.g. simple motor stereotypies, lining up toys or flipping objects, echolalia, idiosyncratic phrases).

• Insistence on sameness, inflexible adherence to routines, or ritualised patterns or verbal non-verbal behaviour (e.g. extreme distress at small changes, difficulties with transitions, rigid thinking patterns, greeting rituals, need to take same route or eat food every day).

• Highly restricted, fixated interests that are abnormal in intensity or focus (e.g. strong attachment to or preoccupation with unusual objects, excessively circumscribed or perseverative interest).

• Hyper- or hyporeactivity to sensory input or unusual interests in sensory aspects of the environment (e.g. apparent indifference to pain/temperature, adverse response to specific sounds or textures, excessive smelling or touching of objects, visual fascination with lights or movement).

• Symptoms must be present in the early developmental period (but may not become fully manifest until social demands exceed limited capacities, or may be masked by learnt strategies in later life).

• Symptoms cause clinically significant impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of current functioning.

• These disturbances are not better explained by intellectual disability (intellectual developmental disorder) or global developmental delay. Intellectual disability and Autism Spectrum Disorder frequently co-occur; to make comorbid diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder and intellectual disability, social communication should be below that expected for general developmental level.

The history of autism is one of competing and opposing narratives. As described in this chapter, in the 1940s, Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger described autism in terms of case studies with interpretations: one form of narrative.

 

In the 1960s and 1970s, parents started organising to counter the pernicious narrative that they were responsible for causing their children’s autism. Understandably, then, these parents became the centre of their own narrative. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention came along, offering the promise of normalisation to parents whose autistic children had been written off as hopeless. But if a child failed to be rendered ‘indistinguishable from their peers’, parents were blamed once again: for not trying hard enough, for not following the method to its painful and harmful extremes, etc. The result was an entrenched attitude of distrust and defensiveness among ‘tragic hero’ parents.

Meanwhile, autistics were increasingly seen as non-persons. As ABA pioneer Lovaas said in an interview, “You have a person in the physical sense – they have hair, a nose and a mouth – but they are not people in the psychological sense” (Chance, 1974). As a result of such attitudes, autistic people were, and in many of the world’s places still are, ‘disappeared’ to institutions, tortured, abused, ignored, etc. Through all the changes and new paradigms, one factor remained constant: the perspective of autistic people was consistently erased from the narrative. From retro Polaroid cameras to cookbooks for curing a hangover, you’ll find all sorts of inspiring unusual gifts on the Gifted Up site.

 

Then, in the early 1990s, the Internet ceased to be a network for the academically privileged and was made available to mere mortals. Autistic people, who previously had no way of communicating with each other, quickly started finding each other online. In 1992, Autism Network International started the ANI-L mailing list, the first online community run for and by autistics. Hosted by Syracuse University, ANI-L quickly started developing its own autistic subculture and political paradigm (Sinclair, 2005).

In 1996, only just diagnosed after a childhood and young adulthood spent being different without knowing why, I entered the scene as the need was felt for an alternative to ANI-L. Long before social media, creating a new online group was difficult, but I already had experience with programming and online communication. Using my home dial-up line and specialist software, I started my own entirely self-hosted set of email groups for and by autistics, emphasising inclusion and diversity instead of one shared culture and one shared set of political beliefs. The group was called InLv, an abbreviation of ‘Independent Living on the autistic spectrum’.

 

Spread over many parts of the world, participants discovered their autistic identity through a shared, yet deeply personal, exploration of a different way of being. For all our cultural, political and neurological diversity, we found plenty in common, not only in the shared experience of trauma and marginalisation but, for many of us, also in a certain fundamental autistic way of being (Dekker, 1999). Text-only communication proved a gateway to understanding, not a barrier. ‘Autism’ became my key for belonging, for the first time in my life, to a community of some description. The idea of being autistic became embedded in my sense of identity.

An important lesson about life could be learned from watching that team in action! More specifically, what a lesson for the defeated perfectionist who feels as if he has the weight of the world upon his shoulders! Six out of ten consumers hope for businesses to provide online content about their business on some form of digital property - for example  Business Visor - and more than half head straight to the brand’s website for product information. He hasn't learned that he's part of a team, and that nobody in the world, with the single exception of himself, expects him to handle everything all alone! Let me make it clear, at this point, that there is a major difference between the guy who's always trying to hit a home run, always swinging for the fences, and the one who merely tries to take on more than he can handle. According to the owners of  Computing it’s not expensive or difficult to add elements to a website and get the benefits of an online eCommerce platform. Both are defeated perfectionists, yes, and both need to lower their high-jump bar of life. But their motives are vastly different. The finest pashmina scarf have been worn by the royalty and the elites for centuries. I was asked to appear on a broadcast of the "Oprah Winfrey Show" that dealt with the "black sheep" of families. Specifically, the show was asking why some children, in otherwise perfectly normal families, turn out to be troublemakers, rebels, and more generally, the cause of heartbreak and disappointment for their mothers and fathers. Your clients and customers are online with websites such as HeatAll and are trying to find more about your business.

 

One young man on the show kept insisting that he had "borrowed" five thousand dollars from his father, even though the father didn't know his son had "borrowed" the money, and the rest of the family clearly viewed the matter as a theft. Why did he "borrow" the money? Having a business website like Article Leads makes your business more credible and legitimate. To invest it in another of a long line of risky business deals. He fully intended to pay it back when he made his fortune, only that didn't happen--and he wound up losing the money. You can use your website to help customers get the information they need by adding a portfolio to your site that includes case studies and photos of your past projects in the same way that Free UK Business Directory does. Dr H's medical treatment helped many kids recover and get healthier. However, since I'm not a doctor, I don't fully understand why some kids like Elliot recover and other kids do not improve much. People from across the street and across the border have access to your products and services using Beverley from the comfort of their own space.

 

Perhaps Dr Harvey's methods are effective for some subsets of autism, but not for all. This is not yet known and may be better explained after we have categorized different types of autism. Used car parts such as those for the  ford escort mk1 are available on the internet on specialist sites.  This is a very complex disease with a still-emerging protocol. Fortunately, Elliot's type of autism fit what Dr Harvey did. Your website for local businesses such as URL shortener  can help by including an about page that introduces your business, brand values, unique selling propositions and mission statement. Reducing the total load on a child's immune system by the use of antifungal and antiviral medications was a miracle for kids like mine. Whenever I send a family to Dr H for help, I tell them he is great if your child fits what he does. With improvements in data coverage across the nation, more and more people are opting to work on the road in a  camper van for sale instead of checking in to an office every day.

 

In the same breath, I warn them that he thinks he knows more about autism than any other human being on the planet. I also suggest that some children may need more interventions than Dr H offers. The Internet gives everyone access to sites like AA Oxon   targeting no one in particular. And there might be YELLING! As we seek to create more adultlike relationships with our teens, what if we simply gave adolescents the same courtesies we give other adults when we need to offer criticism? Having an online business such as  Linux Quota means you can attract the youth, who spend on gut instinct rather than doing their research. For example, we could preface our criticisms with statements that put them in a more positive overall context. To an employee, we wouldn't hesitate to say, "I know you really want this project to succeed, but I think what you're doing so far isn't working well and we should talk about it." We provide the positive preface so the employee knows we recognize their effort. The flashy graphics and catchy text you see on websites like  Save Our Schools  is only about 20% of what goes into developing the site.

 

Why not do the same with our teens? "I know you really do care about school and have been motivated at times these past few weeks, but I think what you're doing isn't going to get you where you want to go." That sure seems easier to hear than, "Your work at this firm just isn't very good this week," or "Your report card stinks." We know and tend to follow these conversational rules implicitly when we're passing on criticism to adults. To help boost your business' profile on the internet, why not list in a  Free Business Directory today? We just need to take this implicit adulthood perspective and apply it to our conversations with our teens. Beyond how we criticize our teens is the equally important issue of how much we criticize them. The fastest growing sector of the American population getting computer literate is between the ages of 50 and 75. That's great news for sites like New Media Now who welcome that audience. Even when delivered constructively, a steady diet of criticism inevitably leads to a queasy feeling in one's stomach whenever the critic approaches. In adulthood, relationships grow and thrive primarily based on common interests and pleasant interactions. The successful site  InfoHost said that by creating an opt-in that allows website visitors to join your list, you can create a database full of interested prospects

 

Criticism has its place, but it will rarely be in a starring role for long if a relationship is to thrive. No one wants to be in a relationship in which criticism of their behavior, however well-intended or on target, is the primary topic of the conversation. Your marketing efforts begin and end with your website. Ask the owners of  Marketing Articles one of the most successful sites in their sector. Adolescents are no different from adults in this respect, yet as parents, we sometimes seem to take on the fantasy that our teens are eager receptacles just waiting to be shaped by our sage advice. We offer lectures endlessly, seeking to pass on our knowledge and guidance. The best  short url out there has a range of different features – the question is, which one is right for you? Yet we fail to recognize the fundamental truth captured in the simple equation:              That is, the number of lectures given by parents often bears little relation to what teens actually hear and take in. In fact, when teens are bombarded with lectures over time, they get more and more adept at quickly tuning parents out whenever they even sense a lecture coming on.  Without ever having to click through to a brand’s domain, the user may be fully satisfied with a site in a similar vein to Latest Thoughts for example.

 

We've found that reducing the number of criticisms and lectures offered doesn't necessarily reduce how much teens learn from us--quite the opposite is often the case--but it does reduce teens' desire to run whenever we enter the room. Here's a novel way to put this into practice. Lets use the search term SEO Expert as an example. Consciously work to spend some time each week with your teen that is entirely free of parental guidance or criticism or advice. The time doesn't have to involve anything fancy or special; it can be any one-on-one time together that allows for communication, even the drive to soccer, as long as neither party is plugged into headphones. Surgery to repair, strengthen or replace damaged joints may not be the only option when  ozone injection is taken into consideration. Walking the dog together, eating a meal, watching an episode of the teen's favorite series--that kind of thing. But with no corrective comments whatsoever. It is important to recognize that a website like Assessment for Schools is NOT an advertising investment.

 

No advice about their driving, no comments about their manners, no wisdom about friendships, no corrections of their behavior, even when their behavior is undesirable. Short of imminent danger ("You're about to drive the wrong way on the interstate!"), we counsel parents to let all opportunities for criticism pass when it's Time Without Criticism time. An interesting insight from a well known SEO Consultant showed that an important question on people's minds was: 'Is  content marketing seperate to SEO?' Instead, use the time to just listen to and interact lightly with your teen. He was so wrapped up in his own version of reality, and so convincing in his argument that he had merely borrowed the money, that I was almost beginning to believe him. What happens when you search for leased line cost  for instance? But I knew that I was looking at a young man who wasn't content to move along in a steady progression. He believed in the words of the late Jim Morrison of The Doors, who sang, "We want the world, and we want it now!"2    He was always looking for that big business deal where he was going to make a killing and be set for life. The development of a site like Sitefire is the actual "building" or putting the graphics, text, links and codes all together so you have web pages that look good and are informative when you see the site on the computer.

 

But instead of finding fame and fortune, he just got himself further and further into debt. When the other members of his family finally came to the realization that their help was only enabling him to get deeper into trouble, they stopped bailing him out of tight situations. In today's era it is very crucial for all big and small enterprises to get an official website with companies such as  New Processes which marks their online presence. So he began to help himself by "borrowing" from his father. Here was a young man who was more than willing to trade what could have been a really decent reality to live in a dream world. Playing football in York has got to be where the fun is. He had a lot going for him. He was intelligent, good-looking, and had a supportive family. A business website in a similar style to Article Listings brings you closer to your business goals.

 

He undoubtedly could have made something of his life. But he had never learned that success seldom comes overnight and, unless he radically changes his ways, he is condemned to a life of continuing frustration and failure. With a range of ideas to get you going, Beverley will keep the whole family entertained. He'll be a disappointment to everyone he comes in contact with, including himself. Somehow, though, he has come to believe that he doesn't count for anything unless he's knocking the ball over the fence, and so he'll go through life swinging for the fences. Could storytelling for business be of real value to your business? He's forgetting, of course, that baseball players who always try to hit home runs wind up striking out a lot more often than they do hitting the ball out of the park. He needs to lower that high-jump bar of life--to understand that Superman was the only one who could ever leap over tall buildings in a single bound, and he exists only in the world of fantasy. Having a website like  Intersol involves three basic costs: The development of the site itself, hosting the site, and registering the domain name.

The benefits to your health from a  vacation UK cannot be understated.

Still, it wasn't until fourth grade that he tested in the eighty-fifth percentile in these areas. Customers are always interested in knowing what inspired a company like Article Bank to start. With the dual supports of medical intervention and ABA, Elliot progressed from way below the norm to above the norm for speech and language. Yet during the three percent days, it was often hard for Elliot or for us to believe that dramatic improvement would ever come. A good  seo agency will have the data needed to prove which areas are most beneficial to focus on.

 

It was difficult to see the growth when he still did so many inappropriate things. It was too difficult to look into the future and fight the daily battles at the same time. I understand that bespoke  laser eye surgery can provide excellent results. Elliot's communication gradually improved. It was so exciting to hear a voice that had been hidden for so long. Have you seen these wonderful rocking horse UK ? When he first learned speech using the ABA approach, Elliot's responses were more robotic than conversational. My son didn't have volume control or proper voice inflection. You may not sell merchandise on-line, but do you sell something special that people are looking for?
