Another social and communication disorder is Asperger syndrome, this is characterised by the following; the individual may have difficulties in social interactions, a restricted range of interests, repetitive behaviours and also they may have a delay in motor development. This may be shown in the individual 's clumsiness or uncoordinated movements, however, those with Asperger 's syndrome don’t have significant delays in both language and cognitive development. There are a number of different symptoms of Asperger 's yet it is unlikely that they would all be present in one person. Each
Working in the health field, we are bound to come across many patients experiencing unique disorders and conditions that we may not be experts on. However, due to our detailed training, we learn how to properly assess and break down the observed conditions to really determine the best treatment options for our patient. The condition I got to research is called “scleroderma.” When you look at the disorder itself, we can see the two Greek words: sclero and derma. With “sclero” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin, we can come to presume that scleroderma is the hardening of skin.
Aside from routines and rituals, another essential symptom in Asperger’s is poor or nonexistent social skills. People with Asperger’s syndrome have difficulty during conversation and are awkward when starting conversation ("What is Asperger's Syndrome?

Since I have attempted to resolve my issue with nonverbal behavior before, the decision to improve that skill was easy, but developing an overall effective plan that had at least a moderate potential for success was an arduous process. I started by listing the common nonverbal behaviors I exhibit during these episodes that obstruct any interpersonal communications; sent or received. Next, I analyzed the list to determine how universal each behavior was in my daily interactions. Though, I thought there would have been more, I was surprised to find only a few of my nonverbal behaviors reappeared in different interactions. I continued to revise the list until the entries were mostly unique to the situation. As a result, the revised list is as follows: fidgeting, rubbing my lower back, itching one of my legs, squirming in my seat (excludes repositioning myself), erratic paralanguage
Many people have a difficult time talking in front of an audience and, some don’t even enjoy interacting with new people at social events. My colleagues and I have conducted a study that describes the effects of a medication for SAD (Social Anxiety Disorder) that can be administered as a nasal spray. We randomly selected a group of 40 men and women with SAD under two different situations: (A) a situation where the applicant was asked to interact with people that they didn’t know and (B) a situation in which an applicant was asked to quickly prepare a speech to present for a small group of strangers. Ten applicants of each
This then leads to disrupted skin permeability and hyperkeratosis (overproduction of skin cells) as the body tries to compensate for the lack of lipids in the skin.
This case emphasizes that physicians should consider pneumothorax as one of the potential complication in patients with chronic Scleroderma with underlying advanced pulmonary fibrosis and sub pleural cysts. Early recognition of pneumothorax can direct physicians to appropriate and timely management and save patient from fatal respiratory
Human beings face obstacles especially individuals with Asperger’s syndrome as they cope with daunting challenges in their existence. These challenges affect their everyday lives particularly in interacting with people and coping with their emotions. Thus, the clinical features, treatments, and accommodations of Asperger’s syndrome impact the affected person’s pivotal aspects of social, communication and demeanour.
Asperger’s syndrome (sometimes referred to as ‘high-functioning autism’) is an autism spectrum disorder that impairs sociality. Exact symptoms tend to vary among individuals, but there are still many common ones affecting communication. Sufferers are limited in their social skills, often unknowingly making inappropriate social behaviors. This is especially evident during conversation, where an Aspergic person may break eye contact or keep conversations one-sided. They also struggle to express empathy and read nonverbal cues, and they may have trouble understanding nonliteral speech, such as sarcasm. Notably, those with Asperger’s syndrome tend to fixate on a single topic or field of study, giving them increased knowledge of that particular thing (“Asperger Syndrome - What Is Autism”).
This can mean an individual with an ASC may struggle to recognise and interpret peoples feeling and emotions. The individual may also have difficulty expressing their own emotions. This can lead to social exclusion as their behaviour may appear inappropriate to the context of a social situation. The person may also appear insensitive as they might not pick up on the social ques of another person. They may prefer to spend time alone and not seek out others for company, preferring to occupy themselves with their preferred interest. Again this might be misinterpreted by others as the individual being aloof or disinterested. Finally a difficulty in social imagination can result in an individual with an ASC struggling to predict other’s behaviour.
Social anxiety, also called social phobia, is a disorder that affects 200,000 to 3 million people a year. It is the fear of communication with other people and, as a result, leads to avoidance of social interaction (Richards, 2012). People with social anxiety usually experience major distress in situations such as being the center of attention, meeting new people, and being observed or watched while doing something. In the article “Anxiety, emotional security and the interpersonal behavior of individuals with social anxiety disorder”, the authors want to learn how people with social anxiety disorder compare with a control group in social situations. They observed the differences in the participants’ interpersonal behavior; which includes both verbal and nonverbal communication, such as body language or facial expressions. The purpose of this research was to gather further information about the effects of this disorder and how people with this disorder compare to the average person.
Because of this, it is hard for those who surround the sufferers (such as their coworkers) to make friend with them, as it is hard for the sufferers to form any kind of relationships because of their limitations. It is also hard to imply emotions especially through facial expressions to the sufferers, as they cannot detect them. Other people also will become uncomfortable with them as they do not recognize people with the faces and may asks their name again and again. This condition can leave a great impact to the sufferers as it can disrupt those who have prosopagnosia from their everyday life and can affect their daily functioning. As the sufferers tend to avoid social interactions, they will have a problem to create any kind of interpersonal interaction, thus can lead to depression and may also damage their career. Inability to recognize faces can also lead to embarrassment, which cause them to avoid causal encounters and develop social anxiety
Stuttering is a fluency disorder that affects the speech of the individual (ASHA). Stuttering causes interferences in the speech that are signified as “disfluencies” (ASHA). These disfluencies may be presented in different ways. There may be repetitions of words, pauses, prolongation of words, and/or may include multiple “ums” in the speech (ASHA). These interruptions in speech may negatively affect the communication of individuals who stutter. Many times, the individuals is aware of what they want to say but is unable to accurately and appropriately verbalize the thought because of the symptoms of repetitions, prolongations and hindering of words (Blumgart, Tran, & Craig, 2010). Social Anxiety Disorder is the most common psychological impact in people who stutter. Social anxiety disorder or social phobia is a disorder where a person feels anxiety related to social interactions. (Blumgart, Tran, & Craig, 2010). Approximately 50% of people who stutter or more are known to have social anxiety disorder (Stein et al 1996). Social anxiety and phobia negatively impacts occupation, social situations, and mental health (Blumgart, Tran, & Craig, 2010). People with social anxiety disorder will have feelings of trepidation about being in social interactions (Jacobs & Anthony, Social anxiety support). Researchers explain that symptoms of social anxiety may include but not limited to “blushing, trembling, sweating, and speech block, and many individuals with social anxiety
