Teaching Reading to Nonverbal Children
Even today, children who are nonverbal or preverbal may lack the opportunities they deserve to learn to read or write, or may not be recognized as readers or writers when they have learned the skills but have not been provided the tools needed to show that they have learned to do so.

Inclusive Playgroups for Babies and Toddlers
New moms looking for playgroups with other mothers of babies or toddlers can use social media or local resources to set up a series of introductory meetings with childhood specialists, parent educators, or others with expertise in development. Inclusive playgroups often lead to lifelong friendships.

Bras for Daughters with Disabilities
Like their mainstream peers, girls and teens with disabilities benefit from professional bra-fitting at a department store or specialty shop to find appropriate, well-fitted bras with features to accommodate physical challenges, while aesthetically pleasing the young woman who wants or needs one.

Disability Diagnosis in Multicultural Communities
Disability occurs at nearly the same frequency across race, culture and ethnicity, but diagnosis for chronic health conditions, developmental delay or autism in early childhood is too often delayed for children of color. They also lack of representation in research and awareness.

A Childhood with Down Syndrome
Babies with Down syndrome who grow up with friends with similar interests or geography often have more in common with their family and mainstream peers than they do with other chromosomally enhanced children and teens.

Earaches and Ear Infections
Children with disabilities experience ear infections and painful earaches at least as often as their mainstream peers. Symptoms may be attributed to the primary diagnosis, behavior issues, or other factors; especially for the very young or those with communication delays.

People with Down Syndrome Raise Awareness
Families and advocacy organizations raise awareness about the potential of individuals with Down syndrome during events year-round, and especially during October or on World Down Syndrome Day March 21st. People with Down syndrome are more powerful advocates, working or just living ordinary lives.

Early Intervention and Multicultural Competence
There is the same cultural and ethnic diversity among families of children with disabilities as their local community, rarely reflected in the staff or leadership of early intervention centers and advocacy groups. Outreach and programming should be culturally appropriate and inclusive for all.

Comedians and Intellectual Disabilities
Individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families have deep diversity in their appreciation of humor, funny situations, and comedians. Unfortunately, many comedy writers and performers are motivated by the cheap laughs they can earn by denigrating people with developmental disabilities.

Incessantly Crying Babies: Colic and Purple Crying
New parents of young babies may be overwhelmed by incessant crying just at the time when it is least likely that they can find out what works to soothe their child. Adult sleep deprivation and the changes a baby introduces into the household can make dealing with the 'purple stage' difficult.
