August 27 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Nick Jonas and Diabetes Awareness
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art63031.asp
Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers band announced he had developed insulin dependent diabetes in 2007 when he was 14 years old. He raises awareness about type one diabetes, encourages other teens and children with juvenile diabetes, inspires self-expression and supports fundraising for research.

Celebrities who build awareness and support for our sons and daughters with special needs have contributed more than they know to the opportunities and encouragement our children need to live up to their true potential. Nick Jonas is especially inspiring because he lives with juvenile diabetes every day himself, enjoys and active lifestyle, fame, and engages in self-reflection that brings an added depth to his songwriting and performances.

It's easy to set up a Twitter account for your parent group,
PTA or advocacy organization - I can include information
about it in the next weekly SNC newsletter.

Are your children already back in school?

If you find incredible sales on school supplies - remember that you can bring in enough folders or notebooks for a whole classroom ~ to show that you have an interest in supporting every classmate your child will meet.
Teachers were often delighted when I brought in a stack of thirty twelve-cent notebooks or nine-cent folders that otherwise cost about a dollar each. If you bring in pencils ~ it's wonderful if they are sharpened already.

Remember, our children with special needs deserve every opportunity and support without obstacles or argument. Whenever their rights or opportunities are challenged, it says more about the individual causing the difficulty than it is about our sons and daughters. We can't control what is going on in their lives or has gone on in their experience that has caused them to focus in a negative way on our children, but we can control how we respond to them and how much we think about them when we are not dealing with them directly. Recycle a small box or a can with a tight fitting lid and whenever you think of the unpleasant person, write down a few words on a small slip of paper and put it in the box or can - and then put that container on the shelf with poisonous cleaning supplies until the five minutes you have scheduled to read and think about what to do about what is written on those slips of paper. We only have 24 hours in each day and every minute is precious! Give yourself the gift of time *not* thinking about an unpleasant person or situation. It can't hurt, and it might help!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
