October 29 2010 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Dealing with Rude Comments or Behavior in Public
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art69014.asp
Although it has been a rare occurance, my family has experienced rude comments and behavior in public in response to people recognizing that my son has Down syndrome. Sometimes unfortunate experiences can lead us to make mistakes in judging the reactions of others, who may have good intentions; other times we wish we had the best snappy comeback to nip it in the bud.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

My son's birthday is October 31st; he was due on December 1st but just could not resist an early morning entrance for his first Trick or Treat. He developed type one diabetes just a few weeks before his 8th birthday and our lives were forever changed when we attended a wonderful Halloween party hosted by the local Juvenile Diabetes Support Group where one child in each family was having a blood test or insulin injection during the party, and all the snacks and treats had carb listings and recipes or all the drinks were no calorie - except for those brought in just in case of a low blood sugar event where they needed a boost. Haunted house, crafts, buffet tables full of treats, and so many toys and little items for a trick or treat circle.

They taught me how to build a more inclusive community for children and teens with diabetes in my son's mainstream classrooms, sports teams, church, scouts and parks department programs as well as those for children and teens with developmental disabilities.

I hope each of you has a great tradition and a happy memory of October through friendship and support in parent groups and especially in the mainstream of your communities.

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
