Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these is not a developmental disability?

    • A.

      Autism 

    • B.

      Huntington disease 

    • C.

      Bipolar disease 

    • D.

      Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

    Correct Answer
    C. Bipolar disease 
    Explanation
    Bipolar disease is not a developmental disability because it is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings, including episodes of mania and depression. Developmental disabilities, on the other hand, are typically present from early childhood and affect a person's physical, cognitive, or social development. Autism, Huntington disease, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are all examples of developmental disabilities as they impact a person's development in various ways.

    Which of these is not associated with developmental disorders?

    • A.

      Anxiety 

    • B.

      Depression 

    • C.

      Personality 

    • D.

      Eating disorder 

    Correct Answer
    B. Depression 
    Explanation
    Depression is not typically associated with developmental disorders. Developmental disorders are typically characterized by impairments in cognitive, social, and emotional functioning that arise during childhood. While anxiety, personality disorders, and eating disorders can be associated with developmental disorders, depression is more commonly associated with mood disorders that can occur at any age. Therefore, depression is the correct answer as it is not typically considered a developmental disorder.

  • 3. 

    Which of these best describes absence of pervasive development disorder?

    • A.

      Psychotic 

    • B.

      Allistic 

    • C.

      Nypical 

    • D.

      Dyslexia 

    Correct Answer
    D. Dyslexia 
    Explanation
    Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that primarily affects reading skills, causing difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition. It does not fall under the category of pervasive developmental disorders. Pervasive developmental disorders, also known as autism spectrum disorders, are a group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impairments in social interaction, communication, and repetitive patterns of behavior. Therefore, the absence of a pervasive developmental disorder would be best described by dyslexia, as it is a separate condition that does not involve the same symptoms or impairments.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How many basic symptoms are peculiar with people in the autistic spectrum?

    • A.

      Two 

    • B.

      Five 

    • C.

      Four 

    • D.

      One 

    Correct Answer
    A. Two 
    Explanation
    People in the autistic spectrum exhibit two basic symptoms that are peculiar to them. These symptoms may include difficulties with social interaction and communication, as well as repetitive and restricted patterns of behavior. These symptoms are key characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and can vary in severity from person to person. Understanding these symptoms is crucial for early diagnosis and intervention for individuals with ASD.

  • 5. 

    Which of these is not a long term issue with people in the autistic spectrum?

    • A.

      Maintaining a job 

    • B.

      Performing daily tasks 

    • C.

      Starting a career 

    • D.

      Keeping a relationship 

    Correct Answer
    C. Starting a career 
    Explanation
    Starting a career is not a long term issue with people in the autistic spectrum. While individuals on the autism spectrum may face challenges in maintaining a job, performing daily tasks, and keeping a relationship, starting a career is not typically considered a long term issue. Once individuals with autism are able to secure employment, they may face difficulties in maintaining it due to social and communication challenges, but the initial step of starting a career is not specifically associated with long term issues for individuals on the autism spectrum.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When does the autistic spectrum normally starts? 

    • A.

      At age three 

    • B.

      At age two

    • C.

      At age four 

    • D.

      At age five 

    Correct Answer
    A. At age three 
    Explanation
    Autism spectrum disorder typically begins to manifest around the age of three. This is when parents and caregivers often start noticing developmental differences and delays in social interaction, communication, and behavior in children. Early intervention and diagnosis at this age can lead to better outcomes and support for individuals on the autism spectrum.

  • 7. 

    Which of these is a not a risk factor as far as autistic spectrum is concerned?

    • A.

      Advanced parental age

    • C.

      Environmental stimulus 

    • D.

      Exposure to valproate during pregnancy 

    Correct Answer
    C. Environmental stimulus 
    Explanation
    Environmental stimulus is not a risk factor as far as the autistic spectrum is concerned. Risk factors for autism typically include advanced parental age, low birth weight, and exposure to valproate during pregnancy. However, environmental stimulus, such as exposure to certain chemicals or pollutants, has not been identified as a direct risk factor for autism.

    What is developmental coordination disorder also called?

    • A.

      Dyspraxia 

    • B.

      Dysphagia

      Amenorrhea 

    • D.

      Bipolar disorder

    Correct Answer
    A. Dyspraxia 
    Explanation
    Developmental coordination disorder, also known as dyspraxia, is a neurological disorder that affects a person's ability to plan and coordinate their movements. It is characterized by difficulties in fine and gross motor skills, such as writing, tying shoelaces, or riding a bike. Dyspraxia can also impact speech and language development, as well as social and emotional functioning. This term is commonly used to describe this specific disorder and is the correct answer to the question.

  • 9. 

    Which of these is not a neurological impairment?

    • A.

      Cerebral palsy 

    • B.

      Muscular dystrophy

      Multiple sclerosis 

    • D.

      Sinusitis 

    Correct Answer
    D. Sinusitis 
    Explanation
    Sinusitis is not a neurological impairment because it is an inflammation of the sinuses, which are air-filled cavities in the skull. It is caused by a viral or bacterial infection and does not affect the neurological system. On the other hand, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis are all neurological impairments that affect different aspects of the nervous system and can cause various physical and cognitive disabilities.

  • 10. 

    Which of these is not a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder? 

    • A.

      Counselling 

    • B.

      Lifestyle changes 

    • C.

      Rehabilitation 

    • D.

      Medications 

    Correct Answer
    C. Rehabilitation 
    Explanation
    Rehabilitation is not a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is typically treated with a combination of counseling, lifestyle changes, and medications. Rehabilitation is not a commonly recommended treatment for ADHD as it is more commonly associated with physical or substance abuse-related conditions. The focus of ADHD treatment is on managing symptoms and improving daily functioning, rather than rehabilitation.
