December 2 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Family Games for Parties - Social and Educational
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art64579.asp
Families of children with special needs may worry about isolation and lack of social context in communication between their sons and daughters and cousins. Playing games at holiday parties, family visits or informal dinners gives us a common frame of reference and helps us get to know one another.

For a better idea on what the most popular childrens gift items are this year, browse at Amazon.com's Children's Games and Toys - http://tinyurl.com/AmzBestSlgToys - and 'sort' the list using the 'best selling' choice in that list. Good luck!

Ordering Amazon.com Gift Certificates here - http://tinyurl.com/AmzSNCGftCd -or from a link in my articles will (slightly) help support the Special Needs Children website. Always check reader reviews, shipping/handling fees, and consider buying locally where prices are comparable. Check prices at Amazon, then call your local retailer for their price on the same item. For iPods and Mac computers, check the Apple store - iPods can be engraved, and special packages or rebates are often available. iTunes gift cards can be bought at face value there, as well as at grocery stores and other local retailers.

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

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