How Can People With ADHD Say the R-Word?
Using the R-word, which stands for retard, is an insult to people with intellectual disabilities. This derogatory term is often used to put down people and is not only harmful to those with intellectual disabilities, but also to those with learning disabilities. In fact, it is a form of bullying. While there is some debate about its usage, the word is not meant to be funny and can be harmful. However, there are ways to avoid using the word, so that it will not hurt you or those around you.
Research has shown that individuals with ADHD have trouble focusing on the things that they want to do. This can cause them to be a little forgetful. It can also make it difficult for them to pick up on social cues, like what a person is saying in a conversation. This is a problem because it affects people’s ability to pick up on social cues, which can make it difficult for them to work and be productive. They may also struggle to follow through on complicated tasks. In these cases, a therapist can help them learn how to focus and pay attention to the details of a situation. This will help them get along with others, and will also make them feel better about themselves.
In the study, Lorch and colleagues tested how cognitive variables related to central information. Participants took part in a two-day cognitive test. They were asked to complete a number of tests to determine their memory and recall of central ideas. They were also given a reading test to measure their passage independence. In the first session, they were administered the Sentence Span Task, the Colorado Perceptual Speed Test, and the Identical Pictures Task. In the second session, they were given the Trailmaking Test and the Gordon Diagnostic System. Their test scores were then analyzed. The results showed that working memory scores completely mediated the relationship between ADHD symptoms and a person’s ability to recall central ideas.
In addition, the researchers found that the participants’ centrality deficit was not exhibited during their reading comprehension. This suggests that the children did not have a comorbid word decoding problem, or that their centrality deficit was not as pronounced as the one seen in non-ADHD comprehenders. They also found that if they did have a centrality deficit, they were able to compensate for the loss of centrality by rereading.
In a separate study, the researchers found that people with ADHD had trouble forming text connections. They discovered that people with ADHD were more likely to have difficulties forming text connections because they had decreased attentional resources. They also discovered that this deficit was largely mediated by gender. There was also a direct correlation between people’s ability to form text connections and the amount of time they spent focusing on the task. This means that adults with ADHD might have a harder time forming text connections, which could lead to them completing complicated tasks with less success.
