August 19 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Back to School with Down Syndrome
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art63002.asp
If you are a parent, or a teacher expecting a student with Down syndrome in your classroom, and plan to help other students to include a classmate with Down syndrome, congratulations. Classroom supports and inclusion benefit mainstream classrooms, teachers and their schools.
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art63002.asp

Your child may have a different diagnosis than Down syndrome, but many of their challenges and your concerns may be the same - if you have questions or problems, suggestions or advice for other families, teachers, administrators or healthcare professionals, please share them in the SNC forum.

Visit specialneedschildren.bellaonline.com for even more great content about raising awareness and finding resources, encouragement and support for children with developmental delays, chronic health conditions, learning disabilities or other special needs. Share this newsletter or any article with family and friends - they may not be aware of the resources available online or in their local communities and all deserve support and encouragement.

Here are some articles that may be of interest:

In Memory of Eunice Shriver - July 10, 1921 - Aug 11, 2009
Timothy Shriver: " ... My family and I would be proud and honored if you would take some time to learn more about her life, share your own remembrances about her, and read the remembrances of others at a website that was recently established to honor her legacy, www.EuniceKennedyShriver.org"
Maria Shriver: "If she were here today ... she would
pound this podium ... and ask each of you what you have done today to
better the world"
Loretta Claiborne: "She was chosen to have a life to serve others, the weakest of the weak, the castaways, the throwaways of society, at the time they would say the mentally retarded, and I am one of those people"
President Obama: "Michelle and I were deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
Eunice was many things to many people ... above all, she will be remembered as the founder of the Special Olympics, as a champion for people with intellectual disabilities, and as an extraordinary woman who, as much as anyone, taught our nation --and our world -- that no physical or mental barrier can restrain the power of the human spirit.
Her leadership greatly enriched the lives of Special Olympians throughout the world, who have experienced the pride and joy of competition and achievement thanks to her vision. ..."

Pamela Wilson:
We may never understand the full impact Eunice Kennedy Shriverís passionate advocacy made in the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families in every corner of the world.
I learned so much about my sonís character and personality during his practices and events in Special Olympics, and his participation added to the pride and joy he brought to our family and community throughout those years.
Inspired by her sister Rosemary, Eunice Shriver's voice and attitude changed the lives of everyone affected by intellectual and physical challenges. My sympathies along with my deepest gratitude go out to her family.
