A Social Constructivist Perspective on the Potential Relevance of Selected DSM‐5 Disorders for South African Children and Youth
Sun, 19 Oct 2014 15:33:38 +0100 | Children and Society
In South Africa, careless implementation of child psychiatry's biomedical model of ‘mental disorder’ could stigmatise children and youth who have been made vulnerable by the lingering effects of apartheid — poverty and malnutrition, violence and abuse, and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. A focus on DSM‐5 category changes — regarding post‐traumatic stress disorder and ADHD — demonstrates that these psychiatric labels are impracticable and irrelevant in a post‐colonial developing country, where mental health care is delivered in the context of scarce services and unequal access. A social constructivist perspective enables us to broaden policy decisions and suggest directions for research. (Source: Children and Society)

Irreversible electroporation: Just another form of thermal therapy?
Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Prostate
CONCLUSIONSThe demonstration that significant Joule heating surrounds current multiple‐pulsed IRE practice may contribute to future in‐depth discussions on this thermal issue. This is an important subject because it has long been under‐exposed in literature. Its awareness pleads for preventing IRE from calling “non‐thermal” in future publications, in order to provide IRE‐users with the most accurate information possible. The prospect of thermal treatment planning as outlined in this paper likely aids to the important further successful dissemination of IRE in interventional medicine. © 2014 The Authors.

Enhancing the Development of Infants and Toddlers with Dual Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Deafness.
Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:15:05 +0100 | Seminars in Speech and Language
This article provides some strategies for preparing children for a successful diagnostic evaluation. Children who are deaf or hard of hearing with a dual diagnosis of ASD may have difficulty learning to demonstrate detection or imitation of the Ling 6 sounds. The Ling 6 sounds are used to determine what a child with a dual diagnosis can hear and discriminate with amplification (hearing aids or cochlear implants). Because children with ASD may not look at the conversational partner and may have difficulty with imitation, adaptive strategies may be necessary to teach these children with dual diagnosis their first words. Strategies for teaching children with dual diagnosis through sign language will also be discussed.
