Teaching Home Addresses to Children
Teaching children their home address can be a life-saving lesson in emergency situations. When travelling or moving to a new location, knowing a current or previous home address helps first responders to discover your child´s identity, to contact you for medical information, and get them home again.

Amazon Kindle 2 and Childhood Disability
The updated version of the Amazon Kindle reader for books and magazines may be more useful than the original for children and adults with disabilities. Advocates for the vision impaired would improve text to speech controls but recognize Kindle 2 provides better access to visually impaired readers.

Multiple Births and Childhood Disability
Discussion of the birth of octuplets to Nadya Suleman included criticism and negative views of the higher risk of developmental disability and other special needs in babies born via multiple birth. Families raising children with special needs become alarmed by hateful comments reflecting prejudice.

Depression and Down Syndrome
Symptoms of depression in teens and young adults with Down syndrome may be mistaken for intentional misbehavior, laziness, regression, age appropriate moodiness, and sometimes psychosis. Even close family and long-term staff may not recognize when significant changes have had a negative impact.

Grandmothers and Childhood Disability
Grandmothers fill an important role in the lives of all children and may be the best resources and advocates for a children with chronic health conditions, developmental disabilities, or other special needs; helping to maintain strong relationships in the family and to advocate for community support

Family Relationships with a Complicated Diagnosis
Children rely on their immediate and extended families for care and nurture, social and cultural education, and a sense of who they are in the world. Those who have a complicated diagnosis may lose connections with extended and even immediate family members, increasing vulnerability due to isolation

End Aversive Restraints and Seclusion in School
Use of time-out or seclusion rooms, physical restraints and other aversive techniques for any child ~ and especially for students who communicate mainly through their behavior ~ should be eliminated from the written policies and all practices of our children's schools, care and education facilities

Kawasaki Syndrome
Kawasaki Syndrome, or Kawasaki Disease, is a serious though rare condition resulting in a sudden fever of five days or more; red rash; pink eyes; redness inside mouth, ´strawberry´ tongue; ´glove and sock´ hardening red rash and swelling in hands and feet; swollen glands; or cracked, inflamed lips.

Snapshots, Photography and Childhood Disability
Children with delayed language can communicate through snapshots and inexpensive picture books showing their daily activities, interests and talents. Taking snapshots regularly gives us a deeper look into their lives, opportunities and capabilities as individuals, too.

Anxiety, OCD, and Childhood Disability
Anxiety in children can be due to any number of stresses and experiences, and may be felt to be a debilitating challenge even when the outward symptoms seem to be mild enough to be seen as a function of a child's personality.
