Positive Psychology and Childhood Disability
Positive Psychology suggests ways of supporting and enhancing mental wellness in children and adults coping with increasing daily stress or anxiety. Human rights activist Norman Kunc explains Abraham Maslow's well-researched theory of the hierarchy of needs as it relates to our families.

Safety, Risk and Childhood Disability
Children with developmental disabilities or physical challenges are slightly more at risk for wandering off, being unaware of danger, and difficulty avoiding accidents. Mainstream children also have low awareness of danger and physical inability to protect themselves due to developmental stages.

Family Games for Parties - Social and Educational
Families of children with special needs may worry about isolation and lack of social context in communication between their sons and daughters and cousins. Playing games at holiday parties, family visits or informal dinners gives us a common frame of reference and helps us get to know one another.

Perfection and Gratitude - Childhood Disability
Children with special needs are often held to higher standards for reaching their potential or IEP goals than their mainstream peers who have more natural accommodations and support in regular classrooms, playgrounds and social situations.

Family Happiness and Childhood Disability
Scientific research on the psychology of happiness has resulted in a great deal of knowledge that should apply to families of children with special needs. Instead, diagnosis of childhood disability most often leads to a description of 'worst case scenarios' and explanations of the stages of grief.

Orthotics and Shoe Inserts for Children
Families of children with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome or other conditions may be unfamiliar with the use of orthotic shoe inserts that help beginning walkers learn how to take their first steps and retrain older children and teens how to walk without causing lifelong discomfort and pain.

The iPrompts Application and Childhood Disability
iPrompts is the iPhone / iPod Touch app available from HandHoldAdaptive via iTunes that uses standard pictures as well as snapshots from an iPhone camera to create schedule and other prompts for individuals who have language or behavioral barriers to communication, staying on task or transitioning.

Proloquo2Go for iPod Touch and iPhone
The Proloquo2Go assistive communication software application for the iPod Touch and iPhone is an affordable iTunes app for children and teens with hearing or speech impairments, communication challenges, neurological diseases, and physical or developmental disabilities.

Photography Lessons for Children and Teens
Children and teens who have childhood disabilities or other special needs can use photography for self expression; to document scientific observation or create school projects; or to keep a record of their experiences in the world.

Nintendo Wii Therapy/Rehab for Children and Teens
The Nintendo WII video gaming system can be used by children, teens and adults with injuries or disability, for physical therapy and rehabilitiation as well as entertainment. Student programmers have created software making the Nintendo Wii remote (WiiMote) functional for people with disabilities.
