The Alexandra and Theo Kazilieris family comes to see you again, this time with both of their children, Craig, now 11 years old, and Abigail, an eight-year-old girl. Both children have special needs.
About six months ago, you diagnosed Craig with autism spectrum disorder with severe symptoms. Since then, he has moved on from trucks to an obsessive attachment to his iPad, which he has with him all the time. He displays marked hand flapping, which is exacerbated when he is stressed. His speech is limited, and he uses repetitive language. Today, he constantly says, “Happy birthday.” His parents and teachers report that he has poor social skills, shows no interest in others, and has a very limited social network.
Photo of AbigailAbigail has been diagnosed as mildly intellectually disabled (MID); she is two levels behind her peers. She struggles with identifying social cues, which often causes her to present as seemingly immature to her peers. Abigail is biracial; Alexandra and Theo adopted her four years ago after having been her foster parents for three years.
Answer the following questions from your perspective as their psychiatric nurse practitioner.
Identify one potential psychotherapeutic intervention for Craig and one for Abigail.
Discuss how you could build an environment around Craig and Abigail that would support competency and augment vulnerabilities.
Describe how you would support the Kazilieris family. Identify some resources that are available in your community. If the resources are available online, include the links.
i. Which facial recognition technologies exist? A numerous of facial recognition techniques and methods are being used for security and authentication purposes which includes areas in detective agencies and military purposes. This way, the facial recognition techniques can play a role in preventing crime. There are multiple methods considered the two primary tasks of facial recognition, i.e. verification and identification. Verification, also called authentication, is presenting a face image of an unknown individual along with a claim of identity, and then ascertaining whether the individual is who he/she claims to be. Identification, also called recognition, is presenting an image of an unknown individual and determining that person’s identity by comparing that image with a database of images of known individuals. There are even some facial recognition techniques that are able to see emotions. These techniques, as well as verification and identification are of great importance when it comes to finding criminals so crime can be prevented. A few examples of the many methods and algorithm that can be used within the field of facial recognition are: Geometric Feature Based Methods, Template Based Methods, Correlation Based Methods, Matching, Pursuit Based Methods, Singular Value Decomposition Based Methods, The Dynamic Link, Matching Methods, Illumination Invariant Processing Methods, Support Vector Machine Approach, Karhunen- Loeve Expansion Based Methods, Feature Based Methods, Neural Network Based Algorithms and Model Based Methods . Later on, one of the most known methods will be discussed in a detailed way. The facial recognition methods that can be used, all have a different approach. Some are more frequently used for facial recognition algorithms than others. The use of a method also depends on the needed applications. For instance, surveillance applications may best be served by capturing face images by means of a video camera while image database investigations may require static intensity images taken by a standard camera. Some other applications, such as access to top security domains, may even necessitate the forgoing of the nonintrusive quality of face recognition by requiring the user to stand in front of a 3D scanner or an infrared sensor. Consequently, there can be concluded that there can be made a division >GET ANSWER
