Landau Kleffner Variant: What's In A Name?

Alex has Landau Kleffner Variant. You won't find Landau Kleffner Variant in the medical diagnostic manuals though. What you will see is Landau Kleffner Syndrome.

With LKS overnight seizures in the temporal lobes rob children of their speech. It also blindsides them with Autistic-like symptoms and severe aggression. Though Landau Kleffner Variant is triggered by abnormal electrical activity in those same areas of the brain and not full blown seizure spikes, it inflicts similar patterns of devastating regressions in children.

I work with a soldier who refused the anthrax vaccine

A soldier in his unit took the vaccine and had a terrible reaction so when it was his turn he refused. At first he was given a dishonorable discharge but later he finaly recieved a honorable discharge. I commend him for standing up for what is right and true. NOW THAT IS A TRUE SOLDIER AND AMERICAN!!!!!!

broccoli and the cauliflower

We got in the broccoli and the cauliflower. He read and spoke "broccoli" but had to have help with the cauliflower tag. That was interesting because the cauliflower tag had a picture and the broccoli tag didn't. So I know he was reading.

But a new trend is emerging which is odd. He's actually trying to stay out of the dirt. Unless of course he has new shoes on and wants to get me in trouble with his mother.
