June 22 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Child Safety - Pills, Purses, and Suitcases
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art62309.asp
Purses, diaper bags and suitcases - from a toddler's perspective, childhood treasure chests - are often overlooked as dangers even in child-proofed homes and vehicles. Parents, babysitters, relatives and visitors may not realize how inquisitive and vulnerable children may be to accidental poisoning, choking, or other injury.

This week marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. How you invest your time this year could start new and wonderful traditions. If you are planning to travel, or entertain out of town guests, for the July 4th weekend, I hope you find happy memories that your family enjoys. I am wishing you a safe and pleasant summer!

Next weekend my family will have the honor of attending the wedding of a young man who we have known since he was a toddler. My favorite observation from a mutual friend was: "...they never go as planned but none of the guests will know; they always except what is and are happy to be there."

Those seem to be the best expectations we could have for all events involving family and friends. I hope you find plenty to lift you into the happiness of being there.

Golfer with Down syndrome finalist in People Magazine contest
http://www.patriciaebauer.com/2009/06/20/golfer
June 20th, 2009 From the Cherry Hill [NJ] Sun:
"Brad Hennefer, a 20-year-old man with Down syndrome, is a finalist to represent the Philadelphia Phillies in People Magazine’s “All-Stars Among Us.” ... Hennefer was a high school varsity golfer who started the Golf for Life Foundation with his father, Robert, to inspire young children with Down syndrome to play golf."

World of Dreams

There's a music video from the CD 'Realidades Parlelas/Parallel Realities' that can be seen at the Riverbend Down Syndrome home page:
http:/www.riverbendds.org
The song in the music video is called Mundo de Suenos/World of Dreams.
Realidades Parlelas features ten songs written by people with Down syndrome, played by three different rock groups. Enjoy!

Sensory Integration International Site Shut Down
http://specialchildren.about.com/b/2008/02/21/sensory-integration-international-site-shut-down.htm

Thursday February 21, 2008, Terri Mauro wrote:
"I've frequently recommended the SII site to parents new to a diagnosis of sensory integration, for its excellent FAQ and its directory of occupational therapists qualified to do sensory-integration therapy. Sensory-integration pioneer A. Jean Ayres, author of Sensory Integration and the Child, was a founder of SII, and that made it an authoritative resource for information on the subject.
It's a sad fact of Internet research that useful sites with good information can up and disappear without warning. Sometimes it's just a matter of an organization changing its Web address; other times, service-provider issues put pages out of contact temporarily or permanently, or site writers simply move on.
And sometimes, as with the site for Sensory Integration International (SII), it's more complicated than that."
