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

Snapshots and Children with Delayed Language
Children with delayed language can communicate through snapshots and inexpensive picture books showing their daily activities, interests and talents. Taking snapshots regularly gives us a deeper look into their lives, opportunities and capabilities as individuals, too.

From the NDSC, ARC/UCP, American Association for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities, and the National Down Syndrome Society:

Bring the Urgent Issues of the Wait List for Adult Services to the Attention of the Obama-Biden Transition Team

http://www.change.org/ideas/view/fully_fund_medicaid_waivers_for_the_developmentally_disabled

It is very important to shed light on the critical problem to the new Administration. We encourage members to vote on this health care initiative and if you have a personal story about an individual you know who is on the waiting list, please follow the directions received given below by the www.noewait.net organization. We need over 900 votes to get to the top of the Health Care list of ideas. Send a message to every listserv you are on and ask others to vote. Then, if you have a web site or blog, create a widget to put on your site or blog to get others to vote. Put it on your Myspace or Facebook page.
