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

Papoose Board Restraints - Dental or Medical Uses
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art176927.asp
Use of restraint boards for medical or dental procedures can be frightening and traumatizing for patients with developmental disabilities and those who are unable to communicate due to injury or illness. It is insulting to Native Americans to refer to these as 'papoose boards' and many advocates argue against the use of 'passive restraint' as a term and as a primary option.

I hope you are enjoying every moment of every good day, or at least have a few minutes to kick your feet up and relax. Thanks for everything you do that makes the world a better place for our kids and families.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the terrible fires in western states, heat waves there and elsewhere, storms along the coast and other events. I know families may be in crisis even where the weather is pleasant and life is going on as generally expected in their communities. Hang in there. I wish I could help.

almost every article at the Children with Special Needs website. I appreciate

bookstore, but the reader reviews and list of related resources on Amazon have
been helpful to many parents and other advocates.
