Patient discussion about audit

Q. I would like to hear from you. I'm searching help for my son, who is suffering from Autism. I was wondering if any of the parents of children with Autism have noticed any changes when they change their children eating habits. If so, have you noticed any significance in the improvement of your child's behavior? I would like to hear from you.

A. I have a sweet little daughter who has autism. When I diagnosed her with autism, I put her on diet and trust me that I have noticed a significant change. I suggest you to give her home brand of safe food that will help more.

Q. How do I make him listen? Hi, My kid is so irrespective and just we have diagnosed him with ADHD. He is just seven years old and makes fun of his friends. It seems that they do not like him. Also if he does not like anyone, he seems to be uncontrollable. He never listens to me. How do I make him listen? I am getting stressed due to this.

A. Yes he needs control, but within your parameters. For instance you offer two of meal choices, ask him which one he would like. Both are nutritious and within your financial and time budget,(By the way a very nutitious varied diet is good avoiding junk food, artificial ingredients etc). Use the same principal with other things. He needs a structured environment, a regular routine and he needs to know what to expect. Its a good thing to have a family conference on a daily basis, if needed one in the morning to dicuss the days agenda and one at night to dicuss concerns and the ne next day. these need only be a few minutes. If the plans change he needs to know why. This involves alot of talking and input on your part. He also needs to learn cause and affect, or what his choice of what to do, or not to do; will effect what the out come will be. Whenever a request is made, the reason for it must be given in a calm manner. Always praise positive behavior, not that silly "good job",

Q. what is this immediate hearing loss???? I woke up yesterday and didnt hear anything, only very high tones in my left ear. I also feel nausious and dizzy. please tell me someone has experienced it and it goes away in a few days!!! I'm very scared to loose my hearing forever, it's been 24 hours that I'm almost deaf. thank you

A. Acute hearing loss can be caused due to an infection of the middle ear or internal ear that can cause dizziness nausea fever and vomiting as well. You should see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

As with the ISO update, the COSO revision discusses the important influences that culture and biases carry in decision-making and risk management practices.
Embora categorize os objetivos das organizacoes em estrategicos, operacionais, comunicacao e conformidade (Figura 1), o modelo do COSO nao propoe uma segmentacao para os riscos.
How COSO Framework Fundamental Concepts Relate to COBIT 5 Framework Components and Content
The COSO ERM Framework describes eight interrelated components necessary for effective risk management, compared with the five internal control components identified in COSO's ICIF.
COSO, ISB and now ISO 31000 seem to be working in a similar space.
Another obstacle was found in a study commissioned in 2010 by COSO, in which board members indicated that the top obstacle to improving risk oversight was that there were more pressing needs.
"COSO has drawn up a very good controls framework, but an ERM manager's responsibility goes well beyond controls."
En aras de mejorar los sistemas de control interno, algunos organismos internacionales han propuesto modelos que han sido ampliamente aceptados tanto en el sector privado como en el publico, entre ellos se encuentra el informe emitido por el Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) cuyo marco conceptual establece criterios practicos para la organizacion y evaluacion del sistema de control interno.
COSO rightly recognized that the important first steps in managing cross-functional risks across the corporate enterprise needed to start with a common understanding of terminology and concepts, even if their application varied widely across organizations.
