Katz (1978) has suggested that mild, fluctuating conductive hearing loss due to middle-ear anomalies may account for the language and attention problems of learning-disabled children. His position was extended here to include autism. Normal, learning-disabled, and autistic children received repeated impedance measures over 5 weeks. A repeated-measures ANOVA(More)
Two groups of seven autistic children wore an auditory trainer for an average of 24 minutes per day over two 5-week periods interspersed with 5-week control periods in a time series design. Videotapes were coded for three attentional states (normal, withdrawn, attacking), for verbalization and signing, and for appropriate and acceptable behaviors. Results(More)
CONTEXT Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) is an overuse injury occurring among the physically active. Linked to increased strain on the medial tendons of the ankle, studies emphasize controlling medial foot loading in the management of this condition. Kinesio taping (KT) has gained popularity for treating musculoskeletal pathologies; however, its effect(More)
Failure to use expressive language is a defining characteristic of juvenile autism (Ricks & Wing, 1975). Indeed, the fact that some 90~ of autistic children end up in institutions seems directly caused by two language-related problems-the child's inability to communicate with others, and the child's failure to learn to use "self-talk" as a means of(More)
Incubation (rest) periods interposed during donor training regimens significantly enhance the "memory transfer" effect reported by some investigators. When extracts from ihe brains of donor rats given interpolated rest during acquisition training were injected into recipient animals, statistically reliable and experimentally reproducible "memory transfer"(More)
