Asthma and Allergies in Early Childhood
Children with asthma and allergies can live much fuller lives today than any time in history. Parents whose children have asthma and allergies educate extended family, school staff and other caregivers about the extra risks their children face every day.

Subtle Design Features and Disability Awareness
Sometimes what seems like a thoughtless design incorporating a disability awareness message or function is misinterpreted by those who have not thought out the actual challenges that a person with that disability experiences or assumes the person with a disability has limits they do not experience.

Mothers Day Crafts - Childhood Disabilities
Teaching children what Mother's Day means and seeing them delight their moms with gifts and cards is why the holiday was invented. Many kids with disabilities enjoy making a macaroni necklace, one of a kind bracelet, decorated photograph, computer designed artwork, advocacy pin or thank you note.

Negotiating an Inclusive Kindergarten Placement
A quarter century after children with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities demonstrated the benefits of mainstream kindergarten for themselves and their classmates, parents are still finding obstacles to enrolling their 5 year olds in neighborhood schools with their mainstream peers.

Baseball Stories - Down Syndrome
My son has been a fan of baseball since he was a toddler. Many other children and teens with Down syndrome love the game, just like their mainstream peers.

Parent Isolation and Childhood Disabilities
Mothers of children with disabilities can feel isolated due to insensitive comments and discrimination against their children; feelings of failing at being congenial 'ambassadors' - as well as the usual reasons mainstream moms feel they not living up to an ideal vision of perfect mothering. Whew!

Adoption by Gay or Lesbian Parents
Adoption or foster care of babies and children with disabilities by gay or lesbian parents requires attention to be paid to the issues that may otherwise create greater challenges during childhood.

Respectful Language
Respectful language means using "person first" word order, and avoiding use of the "R-word" and hate language. But being aware of the damage that hate language and bullying causes means that we can no longer be bystanders when others use derogatory words and comments to tease vulnerable children.

Child Models with Down Syndrome Raise Awareness
Children and teens with Down syndrome have been models in catalogs and newspaper advertisements for the past quarter century, delighting and inspiring families and communities.

Shoe Shopping and Children with Special Needs
Shopping for shoes, wearing and caring for them can be a challenge with any child. Down syndrome adds to the difficulty due to some physical differences common in children with DS as well as sensory issues and developmental delays that are also challenging for other children with special needs.
