Could watching how the brain works and develops while children watch Sesame Street help detect learning disabilities?

Interesting.

According to the article, yes.
It would be great if they could develop programs specifically for this research that were just as entertaining as Sesame Street.
The programs could be designed to target specific parts of the brain. Areas that might not be covered on Sesame Street.
I'd also like to see MRI scanners become as common place as X-ray equipment. They're safer and provide more detailed information.
The last time a Dr. suggested an X-ray for me, I said no.... MRI, and I got it.

Yup, there are a lot of manipulators out there that will take advantage of every situation if you let them.
More often than not, just making them aware that you know what actions to take regarding your rights, is enough to make them back off. Sometimes not. Some aren't bright enough to know when to quit. Then you have to follow through.

I had a moron tell me I had to take a Cat scan. I fought for days with this incompetent Neurologist. He said, if I refused he would tell Motor vehicle I should not drive. The jerk was protecting himself. Not me. There was actually thank God nothing wrong with me. He said, a cleaning women saw me shanking in my sleep. After I gave birth. I said what??????
LOL I received a check for him and did not pay him. When I was called by a moron who said, he was his lawyer. I said tell Dr. Alan Perel who works for Staten Hospital that it is a bad idea to threaten your patient. I have the legal right to pay him out every month according to my means and since he was abusive that is what I will do. If your actually a lawyer you know I have this right.
The lawyer said, yes you do have the right. Smart people including doctors don't assume their patients or clients are ignorant.
I am always the person who shocks abusers to their core. I never tolerate such abuse. Abusers get me angry and that is a big mistake. When the bitch is provoked in me I will not back down.
I have made many bosses feel very foolish. Some eventually discover I make a much better alley. I dislike fighting but I will never be treated like a doormat by anyone.
This incompetent Neurologist decided I might have had a Seizure. I thank the Lord I never have and I pray never will.
I think he made it up to get paid.
I hate fighting but if more people would refuse to be mistreated many abusers wouldn't try.
Recently I had a procedure and my doctor who had treated me for years No longer takes my insurance. The new jerk doctor was cold and condescending. I told I new exactly what was involved. She wanted to intimate me. She tried to make me think I was wrong. In the end I was totally right. The moron Raia with SI. Hospital refused to answer my questions. She said, would I like to ask someone my questions. I said, I am not an uneducated moron. I can look it up on line. She made a stone and face left.
Competent secure people don't need to degrade others. Good doctors usually work for themselves.

More concerned whether or not your insurance will pay for an MRI than your health.

I have been doing that since 1986. I had one than that was primitive. After a car accident.
I have had fights with jerky doctors about this.
