TASH Conventions and Childhood Disabilities
Attending a TASH Convention in San Francisco changed the way I advocated for my son, and changed the way he saw himself as an advocate and citizen of the world. Reports from the 2013 TASH convention in Chicago assure me that people with disabilities will continue moving forward to full civil rights.
Teacher Appreciation and Childhood Disabilities
Parents share creative ideas to show appreciation for teachers who have created better learning opportunities, support, and welcoming classrooms for our sons and daughters with special needs and inspired our children to exercise greater potential than can be predicted by tests and evaluations.
Teaching Babies to Self Soothe When Crying
Many babies who are are late to learn 'self-soothing' are not developmentally ready to take on that responsibility. Teaching an infant to self-soothe without being aware of what might be causing them physical discomfort or other distress is counterproductive to raising a resilient child.
Teaching Children About Money
Teaching children with developmental disabilities about money, spending and saving can help them build confidence in their abilities to control their lives and achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
Teaching Children to Count Coins and Bills
Children may not understand the value of coins intuitively because bigger coins like nickels and pennies are worth less than the smaller dime, and it may be difficult for them to tell nickels, quarters and dollar coins apart by size.
Teaching Handwriting to Children
Children may have difficulty learning handwriting due to physical or neurological immaturity, motor planning or sensory integration difficulties, developmental disability, or lack of opportunities, modifications or tools that accommodate, reduce or eliminate the challenges they face.
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 childīs identity, to contact you for medical information, and get them home again.
Teaching Math Skills
Teaching math skills to children with special needs can happen during everyday activities like shopping, cooking, and playing games
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.
Teaching Reading to Teens and Young Adults
Teens and young adults with developmental disabilities or other special needs may show signs of reading readiness and be highly motivated to learn to read long after they are given opportunities in the classroom, community or at home. Reluctant readers can find books with age appropriate characters.
