Neurological Disorders/Case Studies

Prior to posting to this discussion, read Chapter 15 in the course text.  For this discussion you will pick one of the cases available in the Week Five Discussion – Case Studies document and take on the role of the clinician. Review the patient’s symptoms and the available demographic and historical data.  Discuss your differential diagnosis and provide a thorough basis for any diagnoses you have included. Also discuss what (if any) additional testing you would order and how this would be helpful in clarifying the diagnosis. Finally, discuss recommendations for the patient/family for ongoing functioning (social, occupational and academic, if applicable). You must use a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles in your discussion to support your diagnostic conclusions.

Guided Response: Review several of your colleagues’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful interactive discourse in this discussion. Your response must include your own conceptualization of the case, whether you agree or disagree with your peer’s response and why. You must use a minimum of one peer-reviewed source to support your response.What is the nature of intelligence?
