What are Occupational Disorders?

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

It is estimated that one in every four Americans that are working cannot properly read, write, spell, calculate, or concentrate because of learning disabilities or Attention Deficit Disorders. Some of them will suffer from even worse but subtle symptoms, leading to alcoholism, drug use, anxiety, and mood disorders. There are a group of individuals who succeed in society but had to overcome a tremendous amount of obstacles, including dyslexia: Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Thomas Edison, and even Leonardo Da Vinci all made a huge impact in the world. Unfortunately, not all dyslexics can overcome their obstacles, and even this group was never "cured:" many still felt helpless and dumb.

Occupational Disorder is the outcome of symptoms or issues of dyslexia that failed to improve or disappear as an individual grew older. Symptoms of Occupational Disorder include difficulty implementing simple and complex instructions, inability to organize and execute tasks, daydreaming, careless errors, difficulty writing consistently, spatial uncertainty (not knowing how to get somewhere), difficulty judging time (always late, or early), impulsive talking and moving, and an inability to stay put at a given task or job. Treatment of Occupational Disorder is similar to treatment for Dyslexia, a Learning Disorder, or Attention Deficit Disorder; therapy involves combinations of inner-ear-enhancing antihistamines and medications astronauts take to prevent disorientation. Treatment is even capable of preventing these disorders by identifying inner-ear-determined symptoms in young children, and treating them before they become more significant disorders.
