March 19 2012 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Shoe Shopping and Children with Special Needs
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art175525.asp
Shopping for and caring for shoes can be a challenge with any child. Down syndrome adds to the difficulty due to some of the physical differences common in children with DS as well as sensory issues and developmental delays that are also challenging for other children with special needs.

3/21 - World Down Syndrome Day
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art61064.asp
Down Syndrome Day 2012 will be celebrated for the first time at the United Nations in New York due to resolution officially designating 3/21 as World Down Syndrome Day. In 2009 it was celebrated with the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the genetic cause of Down syndrome by Dr. Jerome Lejeune.

Message from Emily and Jason Kingsley:
"Jason and I will be speaking on a panel on Wednesday March 21, 2012 at the United Nations at a conference called "Building Our Future" in commemoration of the first ever World Down Syndrome Day.
The date was chosen - 3/21 - to highlight the three copies of the 21st chromosome that characterize Down syndrome. Speakers from all over the world, including self-advocates from many different countries, will be presenting all day long. We are very honored to have been included in this prestigious program.
Our part of the program will be a panel discussion between 11:00 and 11:30 AM on Human Rights and Political Participation of Self-Advocates. I will be moderating a panel of four self advocates including Jason. It should be extremely interesting and fun.
Other topics to be covered during the day's conference will be: the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and Inclusion, Changing Society Attitudes, From Neglect and Institutionalization to Protagonist and Living in the Community, Power of the Media, Improving Quality of Life, Latest Research and a new World Down Syndrome Day Website.
We are very excited to be participating in this historic event. - Jason and Emily"

Welcome to Holland - Today and Yesterday
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art172314.asp
The wonderful essay written by Emily Perl Kingsley has been included in many wonderful anthologies and is often included in New Parent Packets for parents and professionals sharing a newborn or prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. Many believe that it is as relevant today as the day it was written.
