Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.
Building a Down Syndrome Library for Parents
Parents and extended family of babies and children who have Down syndrome will benefit from reading informative and encouraging books designed to help us understand and provide the best possible opportunities for their development, education and social connections.
Every advocacy and support group for parents has a similar focus in providing articles and books about a child's specific diagnosis, resources found to be reliable and effective, and stories of how other families have met the challenges and shared the joys of raising their children.
Please visit specialneedschildren.bellaonline.com for even more great content about childhood disabilities, education, health, and family issues.
