Person First Language Awareness
Person First Language is a natural way of communicating about people with disabilities that respectfully acknowledges each person's dignity. Individuals with disabilities experience more discrimination and bullying when a diagnosis is given more significance than their personhood.

Person First Language Sensitivity
Person First Language can apply to any individual or group who may be disrespected, overlooked or dismissed due to stereotypes, prejudice, or discrimination. People with disabilities and their families are often marginalized and excluded because they are classified by diagnosis instead of humanity.

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.

Plastic Surgery and Down Syndrome
Very few families of young children with Down syndrome choose to look into the option of plastic surgery to reduce facial characteristics in hopes that their children find better opportunities and less prejudice in school and community programs.

Positive Behavior Support in the Classroom
Challenging behavior was cited as a primary reason that students with IEPs had been blocked from inclusive classrooms in their neighborhood schools until 1997 amendments to IDEA established PBIS as the recommended form of behavioral intervention. PBIS is now embraced as a strategy for all students.

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.

Postpartum Depression and Newborn Diagnosis
Having a beautiful new baby diagnosed at birth with a childhood disability can cause a period of readjustment for new moms, but postpartum depression is different in significant ways. Some mothers experience both difficulties, and can remain undiagnosed despite cascading symptoms of depression.

Power Struggles and Self-Care Skills
Children with disabilities should have ample opportunities to engage in decision-making, developing preferences, and engaging in power struggles with parents, just like their mainstream peers. They need options, extra time to practice, and a safe and forgiving relationship to express defiance.
