We repeat metaphors which were used by our grandmothers or which were heard somewhere and as a result they were kept in our mind.

The most recognizable of these disorders are mental retardation, Autism, attention deficit disorder and even learning disorders. Many of these disorders maintain a biological component based on damage or malformation during gestation or delivery complications. Cognitive difficulties arise during the developmental stages as the individual suffering from one or more of these disorders find it difficult to achieve academically or interact socially.
