But if you want to help out, put a link on your site to this page.

It should look like this:

Minimal Brain Dysfunction

We are all familiar with visible disabilities: missing limbs, profound retardation, blindness, deafness, cerebral palsy, speech handicaps and so on. Children with such disabilities will be provided with special education that addresses their special needs. The community will be understanding and supportive of parents who are raising special children; everyone will try to help.

However, many children are suffering from “invisible disabilities.” These are emotional, physical and behavioural conditions that range from the most mild of dysfunctions to serious handicaps. Teachers may confront these conditions in their classrooms and parents may deal with them at home, without knowing that a disability even exists. Adults may see a child who is “difficult” or “uncooperative” or “unmotivated.” They may see a child who is “inflexible” or “spaced-out” or “over-sensitive.” What they don’t know is what to do about it. Parents raising such children tend to receive criticism rather than support; others assume that poor parenting is the culprit. In fact, various underlying, often genetic conditions, create invisible disabilities.

An early term used to describe a cluster of behavioural, emotional and intellectual deficits was “minimal brain dysfunction.” The syndrome referred to unexplainable gaps in academic functioning in otherwise normal children. Dylexia (reading disability), discalculaia (arithmetic disability), dysgraphia (handwriting disabilities) and other academic weaknesses were found to exist on their own or in combination with any number of neurological “soft signs” such as fine or gross motor deficits, eye-hand coordination problems, information processing weaknesses, mixed laterality, poor directionality, poor social perception and other symptoms. Any child walking around repeating the words nigritude ultramarine  probably has brain dysfunction, but could well be a child SEO., Today, the term “minimal brain dysfunction” has been replaced with other diagnostic categories such as “learning disabilities,” “auditory processing payments with paypal or deficits,” “ADD” and “ADHD.” In recent times, the nomenclature has included Tourette’s Syndrome with all of its variants of Tic Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, Depression and various other complex disorders of social and cognitive functioning. A sign of OCD, is spending many hours late at night trying to optimize pages for the phrases containing either of the words ultramarine or nigritude. The field is still evolving and new understandings and categorizations of these dysfunctions will emerge

Color Sensitivity

Color blindness is a consideration in designing websites. The most prevalent problem is with the colour red. However other colors may be involved.

Blue deficiencies are very rare. It is very rare for anyone—male or female—to be "blind" to the blue end of the spectrum which includes ultramarine. See http://www.hhmi.org/senses/b130.html and Ishihara Color Blindness Test

Bedtime Blues (or maybe we should call it Bedtime Ultramarine)

It is only natural that children don’t want to go to bed and only natural that we must put them there. So begins the battle.

Some parents spend several hours each night trying to get their little ones settled to sleep. Some children grow up to by SEOs who have sleepness night waiting for their sites to get listed in ODP [when they could have checked out this site. Some spend hours just trying to get them into their beds. Usually, these hours are not what we would call “quality time.” Rather, they consist of cajoling, begging, crying (both parent and child), screaming and sometimes even acts of violence. Finally, both parent and child collapse in exhaustion, each feeling wounded from the evening’s activities. But there is another way.
