Thanks Amaral and oluwabusi,

I suppose I could keep asking for your suggestions!

1.Sexually offending in LD is more often due to hypersexuality.

2.XYY phenotype is associated with low IQ.

3. XYY occurs more often in families with a history of criminal behaviour.

4.Social emotional repetoire is retained in williams syndrome

False

Most offences are crude expressions of sexual frustration

XYY phenotype is associated with low IQ

True

The XYY syndrome is present in 1 in 800 boys. Males with XYY syndrome tend to be tall and to have nodulocystic acne at puberty. XYY males as a group, like XXY males(Klinefelter syndrome), reportedly are somewhat less intelligent than XY males. This may increase their risk of socialization and academic problems

3. XYY occurs more often in families with a history of criminal behaviour.

True???

Cytogenetic and molecular genetic studies have not yet identified specific conditions associated with antisocial behaviour, except for the XYY karyotype where affected individuals show about three times the rate of criminal behaviour than controls or individuals with other chromosomal anomalies such as XXY, even allowing for their reduced IQ.

Offenders with LD respond better to individual than group therapy?

In Downs syndrome there is high risk of developing hypothyroidism than general population?

An young adult with Down Syndrome is likely to have epilepsy?

Impaired voice prosody is a feature of Aspergers Syndrome?

Theory of mind difficulties are found in general population as they are found in people with Autistic spectrum disorders?

Dear all

Great stuff guys! Keep it up. Just wondering...am sitting part II in March. Am I right in saying that there's a reasonable amount of psychology in the basic sciences MCQ paper and if there is, will it be similar to the part I psychology or is there other new stuff?

Cheers

I feel that part1 psychology does play a significant part in preparing for the part2 psychology,however you need to know lots of new stuff too e.g BABOONS!

I would not be revising the notes from part1 and will try to do only the questions which have come in the exams in the past 2-3 years.

One more;

1.Food rumination in adults with severe learning disability is associated with increased mortality risk

Food rumination in adults with severe learning disability is associated with increased mortality risk  

I would say TRUE. I can't quote any exact reference but putting different facts together of whats know of severe LD and Rumination disorders and mortality rates in both disorders, this is what I have come up with - Rumination is more common in the adult population with severe LD and profound LD than in adults with normal IQ. Prevalence rates of 6-10% have been reported among the institutionalized population of individuals with mental retardation in the USA. Rumination is estimated to be the primary cause of death in 5-10% of individuals who ruminate. Mortality rates of 12-50% have been reported for institutionalized infants and older individuals (the inference is those with severe LD). Rumination in its own right can cause the following -

Halitosis, Malnutrition, Weight loss, Growth failure, Electrolyte imbalance, Dehydration, Gastric disorders, Upper respiratory distress, Dental problems, Aspiration, Choking, Pneumonia, Death

:-[ all that work for one answer, so it had better be right :)

PS thanks for all the effort in keeping this going I also hope to post some of my own, cheers

1.Parents of Autistic children are usually aware of problems by the age of 12 months. False

' Abnormal development is usually apparent before the age of 3. There are reports that early signs if autism can be detected in infancy'... Shorter OTP

2.Autism and risk of schizophrenia in adults

3.Autistic children become less isolated as they grow older. ....False

Although they try to mix with others but because they have not learnt the social ways they cntinue to behave as small children and amy be rejected and feel isolated..

4.Arson is overrepresented in LD offenders.... True. So is Sexual offences.... Shorter OTP... the section of arson in forensic

4.Arson is overrepresented in LD offenders.

1. F. Although there may be some elements of delay, v. hard to diagnose if you're a parent. Most parents don't know what autism or want to contact GP or service. Presentation tends to be delayed. Assessment by services can also take ages

2. T. Loads of recent articles in APT about continuation of PDD etc into adulthood. Autism was one of Bleuler's 'A's. Kids with autism who graduate to adult services are probably over/misdiagnosed with schizophrenia. Increased L.D and schizotypal -- increased rate of schizophrenia.

3. Probably false. Check out previous post above

4. True.
