Anneli Kaariainen, Ph.D., Pediatric Neuropsychologist

Pediatric neuropsychology is a specialty of psychology focused on learning and behavior in relationship to a child’s brain. A pediatric neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise in how learning and behavior are associated with the development of brain structures and systems. Formal testing of abilities (i.e. memory, language, attention, visual spatial) assesses brain functioning. A pediatric neuropsychologist conducts the evaluation, and is then responsible for interpreting the test results and making recommendations.

School psychological assessments differ from a pediatric neuropsychological evaluation in several significant ways. School assessments are usually performed to determine whether a child qualifies for special education programs. School assessments focus on achievement for academic success and typically do not diagnose learning or behavior disorders caused by altered brain function or development.

Children can be referred for a pediatric neuropsychological evaluation by any number of people, including primary care physicians, pediatricians, neurologists, child psychiatrists, psychologists, teachers, and other school officials. Furthermore, parents also self-refer as they often independently seek a pediatric neuropsychological evaluation for their child.

Typical issues that lead to someone seeking a pediatric neuropsychological evaluation for their child include: difficulties in learning (i.e. reading difficulties), behavior, socialization, attention, or problems with emotional regulation. These symptoms can be due to medical conditions such as brain injury, birth trauma, physical illness, or developmental problems.

A pediatric neuropsychological evaluation commonly assesses the following areas: IQ, school achievement, judgment, planning, decision making, attention, learning and memory, language, visual spatial and motor coordination, behavioral, and social-emotional functioning. In addition to the formal testing provided, detailed developmental history of the child is obtained from the parents. Information or behavioral rating scales are also obtained from the child’s teacher (with consent from the parents) to obtain a more comprehensive understanding of the child’s functioning in the academic setting.

Upon completion of the evaluation, the pediatric neuropsychologist provides recommendations on what type of treatment is necessary to correct any weaknesses or problems that surfaced during the evaluation. The results and recommendations of the pediatric neuropsychological evaluation will guide teachers, therapists and parents to better help the child achieve his or her maximum potential.

The Power of The Immune System to Help Fight Cancer

July 24, 2012 by · Comments Off on The Power of The Immune System to Help Fight Cancer 

Our immune system is a complicated and poorly understood defence mechanism. It is a system similar to the circulatory system and some of the known organs of the body that are part of it are the spleen, tonsils, adenoids, thyroid and the lymph nodes. What we do know is that it can remove cancer cells unless it’s been weakened by bad diets and other lifestyle factors that has stopped it working efficiently. If the body is well nourished it has the ability to attack foreign cells and remove them safely.

Cancer will occur when these abnormal cells multiply in the body at such a rate that the immune system cannot control them. If someone has been diagnosed with cancer it’s because something has gone wrong with their immune system. A person with a healthy immune system cannot get a serious health problem such as cancer so to overcome the problem all you have to do is to correct the reasons why it appeared.

The most influential factor of a weak immune system which causes cancer cells to develop is because of the food you eat. The first thing you have to do is to stop eating the food that’s causing the problem. They are; food that’s been processed, white or other denatured grains, the many food items that contain refined sugar and that includes artificial sweeteners, too much alcohol and of course a lack of fresh food that’s been produced by nature and had minimal interference by man,

Other factors that depress the immune system are; stress, constant worry, grief, fear and frustration, lack of exercise, excessive athletic training, inadequate sleep, the many chemicals we use, smoking, including second hand smoke and all drugs which are both recreational and medicinal drugs and especially chemotherapy.

Then there are problems with toxic overload caused by: microwave food, fluoride in our water and mercury in amalgam fillings, bad fats which are trans fat in commercial biscuits and cakes, aluminium that’s in deodorants and any chemical that you put on your skin which is absorbed into the body.

The reason why somebody is diagnosed with cancer is because our self healing or defence system has had to constantly battle major toxic overload which will eventually weaken it. Cancer is caused by years of bad diets and lifestyle so to solve the problem, common sense should tell you that you have to remove the cause before you can fix the problem. If you are serious about your cancer then it means a total lifestyle change forever.

We have been brainwashed today into believing that removing cancer cures the problem but if that was the case then the cure rate would be much higher and despite what we’ve been told hasn’t changed in years. You have to deal with the reasons why it first appeared and that will allow the immune system to heal and eliminate the cancer permanently.

Remember there is not a drug to strengthen the immune system, only drugs to suppress it as used with organ transplant patients so the only way you can successfully remove a cancer growth permanently is naturally.
