Disability Issues In the News
Disability related news articles in mainstream newspapers and magazines help advocates stay informed and gather community support

Disability Parking Placards - Childhood Disability
Families use disability parking placards for health and safety reasons, managing wheelchairs and other equipment, for childhood disabilities including those affecting mobility, breathing, cardiac issues, vision impairment, sensitivity to vehicle emissions or dificulties walking more than 200 feet.

Dolls for Children with Disabilities
Beautiful dolls and toys that demonstrate the diversity of the children in our communities have been available for many years, and should be found and enjoyed in classrooms, daycare and our childrenīs toy collections. Some parents have found dolls with disabilities to be offensive representations.

Doorstops for Kids and Teens in Wheelchairs
Local businesses, entertainment venues and school event locations may not think to provide low-cost, thoughtful supports for children, teens and adults with disabilities - including doorstops for those in wheelchairs.

Down Syndrome - Parent to Parent Contact
Families of babies newly diagnosed with Down syndrome may not have access to information or encouragement until their babies enroll in early intervention services and may be on wait lists. Parent groups rely on volunteers to put together info packets or welcome baskets and make hospital visits.

Down Syndrome - Treatment Research
Families question the uneven funding of research into treatment and support for Down syndrome compared to investments in prenatal testing. However, we should be encouraged by the comparative funding of treatment research now compared to even a decade ago. It also benefits the general population.

Down Syndrome and Autism Dual Diagnosis
Families whose children with Down syndrome have autism or an autism spectrum disorder can find support and information online for this dual diagnosis

Down Syndrome and Diabetes Dual Diagnosis
Only a few more children with Down syndrome develop insulin dependent diabetes than their mainstream peers. My son developed Type 1 diabetes when he was a slender seven year old, suddenly losing weight. He was diagnosed early because I read about symptoms reading about his sister's T1D classmate.

Down Syndrome and Heart Issues
Children with Down syndrome have a higher incidence of heart problems and some babies require surgery within the first year of life. Due to the great strides in surgical techniques and medical support, children's heart issues can be resolved with a quicker recovery than seems possible to families.

Down Syndrome and Spinal Concerns
Children with Down syndrome have been evaluated for the cervical spine disorder atlantoaxial subluxation for a quarter century. The 1996 evidence based guidelines for doctors are now expanded to refer to cranial-vertibral instability and spinal instabilities including occipito-atlanto deterioration.
