Alpha, Beta Brainwaves Differ in Those With Autism A new study shows that brain waves in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) differ from those in people without ASD. The findings show that ASD individuals exhibit fewer beta and alpha waves in certain regions of the brain as well as irregular patterns in the frontal lobe. Beta brainwaves are higher frequency waves that dominate when we feel alert, attentive, and are intensely focused. For the study, researchers at the University of Malaysia Sarawak compared the brainwave patterns of ten individuals with ASD to those of ten typical individuals to see if they could identify any differences in brain waves among the participants with and without the disorder. ASD is a group of neurological dysfunctions that result in challenges in thinking, talking, recognizing and expressing emotion, and social situations. The researchers used a quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG), which measures electrical activity through 19 electrodes resting on the head during specific tasks.

SA Life - Geocaching - a modern day treasure hunt! Right this moment, all over the world, in parks, suburban streets and even lonely corners of the wild, there are literally millions of treasures awaiting discovery. Geocaching - the tech-age love-child of orienteering and scavenger hunting – has taken a global hold, and it’s already in a location near you. Darren and his clan are addicted to the challenge. Darren: It’s a really good family activity. Caches can be as small as a film canister, or as large as a dumpster… the challenge is in how well they’re hidden, and there is a range of difficulty, from easy, to real smarty pants expert. Briony: (at computer) So this is how you get started, I’m on the Geocaching dot com website, I’ve typed in a username & a password, & my entry level membership is completely free, I type in a postcode of the area where I’d like to search & up come all the co-ordinates for all the geocaches in the area.

Experience 60 seconds of how it feels to live with autism. Certain things can drive me up a wall. Like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet. Make it stop already! GIFs via the National Autistic Society/YouTube. Or deafening, nonstop police sirens outside my window that just. won't. quit. Nope, nope, nope. That's why a video made by the U.K. For the first time, I was able to get a glimpse into the world as it's experienced by many who have autism or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) — a developmental condition that can hinder a person's social, emotional, or communication skills. A lot of these folks experience sensory sensitivity, which makes it hard to process sensory information like sounds, sights, or tastes. This magical button delivers Upworthy stories to you on Facebook: For someone who has ASD, a sound (like those obnoxious police sirens I mentioned earlier) can be magnified and distorted. To people without sensory sensitivity, those police sirens may just be annoying. Autism is more than just sensory sensitivity, though. You can't "see" it.

Years F–4 | Key understandings | Years F–4 | Sequential development of understanding maps | GeogSpace Introduction A set of guidelines about children's ability to interpret maps is provided in this illustration. It also contains information showing the different elements of the understanding of maps, and the sequence of stages through which students' progress. Learning goals This illustration of practice is designed to help teachers improve their students' understanding of maps. Geographical understanding and context An understanding of multiple kinds of maps is central to a mastery of geography. The multiple elements of map understanding and use are treated individually in this illustration. Learning approaches The research on children's understanding of maps has revealed that there are a number of separate elements or sub-skills that need to be developed. These elements of map understanding are: 1. The first element of map understanding is that maps are a plan view of the land surface, as distinct from a sideways view or an oblique aerial view. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. a. c. d. e. What you need Books:
