Safety Issues for Summer Activities

A Special Olympic Athlete's Road to Gold star
Book Review: Spirit, Courage, and Resolve - A Special Olympic Athlete´s Road to Gold, by Tom Lambke, and I Just Am, by Bryan Lambke

Another Year Past Hurricane Katrina star
One year after hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, disability advocacy organizations for children, families and individuals are more aware, still working to help those affected and to prepare all communities

Avoiding Heat-related Illnesses in Children star
During hot weather most children with special health needs, and others with certain disabilities, need to take simple extra precautions to avoid complications of heat, as they may be more susceptible to heat stroke or exhaustion, sunburn and other dangers

Choosing Inclusive Summer Camps star
There may be as many kinds of summer camps available in your area specifically for children with disabilities as there are mainstream or inclusive camps. Making a decision on which camp to choose may depend as much on a philosophy of parenting as it does on location, amenities, and cost.

Communication and Summer Activities star
Children with language delays or articulation problems can improve communication skills during the summer - and we can become better ´listeners´

Safety Issues: Heat Illnesses star
Children with special needs are often at greater risk for heat exhaustion than other children. All children are more vulnerable than adults in warm weather and long hot spells.

Summer Learning and Childhood Disability star
Summer learning opportunities can pop up in unexpected places for children with developmental disabilities, chronic health conditions or other special needs. Our children may benefit from neighborhood play, extended school year classes, summer camp, parks department programs or respite and daycare.

Sunblocking Clothing and Laundry Rinses star
Using clothing or a laundry additive as a sunblock has been in the news recently - especially for those who don´t reapply sunblock lotion every two hours, or those who have had skin cancer
