    ABSTRACT: This study intended to develop a scale of symptom listing for differential diagnosis of children with autism against other developmental disabilities. Additionally, it also seeks to develop categories or various risk levels to different severity levels of autism. After several rounds of ground trials, the final list of 181-item covering seven domains was tried on a sample of 74 children covering autism, mental retardation, expressive speech delays, hearing impairment and slow learners. Results indicate that the tool has adequate degree of internal consistency and discriminant validity. The tool shows promise of being a culturally appropriate tool in the Indian context.

    ABSTRACT: This study examines developmental changes in children’s peer conflicts within the school setting. Children in two age groups (6 and 10 years) were observed as they engaged in a variety of social activities. Issues over which conflicts erupted, strategies to deal with them and teachers’ roles were explored. It was found that the amount of conflict was similar across both age groups, with boy-boy conflicts being most frequent. Cross-gender conflicts were significantly greater among the older children. Also, they had larger number of conflicts over facts and opinions than their younger counterparts. Physical aggression as an issue for conflict as well as a strategy to deal with conflict was more common among younger children. The children of both the age groups tended to involve teachers in handling their conflicts. The most common response of teachers toward conflict was to ignore or scold the children. Implications of the findings are discussed.

    • I think when you look at "compulsive" and "pathological" you are getting into psychology because you are looking at brain/mental processes. Gambling in of itself is not necessarily a social problem. However, when someone spends a lot of time gambling it can and often does lead to social problems (marriage and family problems, for example)
