Disability Diagnosis in Multicultural Communities
Disability occurs at nearly the same frequency across race, culture and ethnicity, but diagnosis for chronic health conditions, developmental delay or autism in early childhood is too often delayed for children of color. They also lack of representation in research and awareness.

A Childhood with Down Syndrome
Babies with Down syndrome who grow up with friends with similar interests or geography often have more in common with their family and mainstream peers than they do with other chromosomally enhanced children and teens.

Earaches and Ear Infections
Children with disabilities experience ear infections and painful earaches at least as often as their mainstream peers. Symptoms may be attributed to the primary diagnosis, behavior issues, or other factors; especially for the very young or those with communication delays.

Early Intervention and Multicultural Competence
There is the same cultural and ethnic diversity among families of children with disabilities as their local community, rarely reflected in the staff or leadership of early intervention centers and advocacy groups. Outreach and programming should be culturally appropriate and inclusive for all.

Incessantly Crying Babies: Colic and Purple Crying
New parents of young babies may be overwhelmed by incessant crying just at the time when it is least likely that they can find out what works to soothe their child. Adult sleep deprivation and the changes a baby introduces into the household can make dealing with the 'purple stage' difficult.

Getting Started - Models with Down Syndrome
Models who have Down syndrome have found work in a variety of ways. Because modeling is a business, it is important to discover how to protect individuals and their families from exploitation. Advice and planning with the help of an agency advocate like DSiAM often leads to better outcomes.
