Effects of Psychotropic Medication on Learning and Cognition
Therefore, the idea to go about this disorder will entail coming up with a well-calculated layout strategy that will ensure that the favorable working conditions that allow the oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder to work effectively is disrupted. Effective disruptive will render the combination unable to carry out the roles they play in aiding the development of the disorder. Various studies have indicated how this combination works in a manner that helps in the spreading of ADHD disorder. For instance, Sikirica et al. (2013) found that there was an increasing rate of ADHD in Europe and in the findings it is well stipulated that the disorder works in the assistance of other components that play a crucial role in the spread of the condition.
In the UK data obtained by the British Child and Adolescent Mental Health Survey shows the rate of ADHD prevalence to 3. 6% for the boys and 0. 085% for the girls the findings were obtained from the participants between 5 to 15 years of age. The findings collected from different countries illustrate that there is an increase in the rate of which this disorder continue to affect people. Therefore, there is the need of further intervention mechanisms to be conducted so as the prevalence rates can be reduced since the individual prevalence rates according to these statistics may make lead to the conclusion that the current intervention methods and strategies have been unable to successfully attain the desired goal which continues to put the vulnerable group and the people living with the Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in a great risk of further contraction of the illness.
The successful training will offer the change of behavioral symptoms which is one of the steps in the healing of the disorder. According to the research, Cogmed Working Memory training (CWMT) is one of the cognitive training that will result in the improvement of the behavioral symptom in the manner that is preferred. The training works on the perception that the working memory can hold information as well as manipulate the information and all these processes make sure that the brain is active the situation that reduces the chances of the existence of this illness. According to the six studies that have been conducted on the suitability of CWMT the findings have proven without no doubt that the cognitive practice is appropriate in the treatment of ADHD.
The studies utilized the randomized controlled design trial and out of the four studies, three affirmed the suitability of CWMT in the treatment of ADHD. Therefore, the research will rely intensively on the contribution made by the selected healthcare institutions and the experts. The acknowledgment of the fact that there is something amiss that where the condition continues to exist and it is projected to increase based on the statistics provided by some of the reputable agencies like the British Child and Adolescent Mental Health Survey will be an essential step towards the research offering the best alternative to the treatment. However, the proposed research will not rule out some of the basic foundation created by the previous studies but the reference will be conducted in a vigil encounter to avoid the movement of the informational disputes that reduced the suitability of some of the findings and recommendations conducted by these studies.
The research will focus on using other platforms that can provide credible information that can fuel the attainment of the amicable solution to the condition which continues to be a concern based on statistics provided. The proposed research will seek to have reliable information thus the research will follow all the formalities that will guarantee the attainment of this objective. The success of the proposed research will lay on how all the research apparatus are coordinated and how inferences are made from what is witnessed. Procedures: After the selection of the participants, they were advised not to take alcohol or even nicotine because these substances may affect the findings. Similarly, people under any form of were exempted from the research because the reaction of various chemicals in the body may result in a detrimental response that is why such people are not allowed in this study.
Once the participants and the healthy controls are availed, and the right psychotropic medication is selected. The research starts in this research methylphenidate is the drug that is used (Hashemian et al. The inducement of methylphenidate drug in the system will change the existing activities because the drug is strange to the body (Bidwell et al. However, the reaction with the body may be gradual or faster and it may take longer to adjust to the change. Therefore, the findings expect that with the intake of the psychotropic medication there will be a change but the findings will determine the specific type of alteration that has occurred. However, the experts will be a vigil to avoid field injury cases that may be reported because of the intake or the withdrawal of the drug used for the research (Antshel et al.
The research will allow the participants that will be affected by the intake of the drug to fall out of the research so as to go and look for medication. The grace period will allow the management to consolidate the financial statements so that the public and other players can ascertain how the money was used and if the results obtained are in accordance with the expenditure that was incurred in the initiative. In addition the budget summary can also be seen in the appendix section with a more itemized approach as to the items that will be required. SUMMARY PROPOSAL BUDGET ORGANIZATION PROPOSAL NO.
