Privacy and Parent to Parent Advocacy
Individual and parent-to-parent interactions online can be destructive to broad advocacy efforts and humiliating for children, teens or adults with disabilities, when privacy and respect issues are disregarded; especially when families appropriate the focus for support and services to themselves.

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.

Strangers Observing My Son with Down Syndrome
People in public who stare at children with Down syndrome without smiling or greeting them can make parents uncomfortable or angry. When my son was younger, I decided to approach strangers who stopped to watch him, and discovered that there are many stories out there in the world I do not know.

Solidarity for Civil Rights and Human Rights
Events unfolding in Ferguson Missouri in August of 2014 following the death of Michael Brown resulted in a call for solidarity for civil rights and human rights from advocacy and support organizations throughout the country. Unfortunately, that call happened when we should still have been listening.

When Diabetes is Like Holding a Tiger by the Tail
Children and teens with insulin-dependent diabetes (type one) may experience a 'honeymoon phase' of what seems like controllable blood glucose where almost every reading is within the typical range. When the honeymoon is over, families may feel that diabetes is like holding a tiger by its tail

Age Appropriate Misbehavior - Toddlers Throw
Babies and toddlers with Down syndrome often engage in age-appropriate misbehavior as they pass through developmental milestones as early as their mainstream peers. Throwing food, plates and cups at meal time during the 'hold and release, cause and effect' stage can be delightful for the child.

Teens with Type One Diabetes
Teens with Type 1 Diabetes face the same challenges of adolescence as their mainstream peers, with the added stress of managing a chronic condition with terrible complications. They deserve ongoing support and encouragement whether diagnosed in early childhood or while dealing with a new diagnosis.

Traumatic Interventions and Childhood Disabilities
Children and teens with disabilities may experience traumatic stress resulting from ignorance, prejudice or poverty in their communities that may not be related to a diagnosis, but some interventions can also create painful or emotionally unbearable situations difficult to survive.

Disability Advocacy and Unintended Consequences
Disability awareness and advocacy has long been fueled by medical and education professionals, family members, and others who have neither grown up with or experienced disability issues on a daily basis. Individuals with disability bear the brunt of the unintended consequences of uninformed efforts.

Nurturing Parents of Babies with Disabilities
There are simple steps advocates, friends and family can take to support and nurture parents the first full year after their baby is diagnosed with a developmental delay or disability, is injured, or develops a physical illness or other condition.
