Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Children with Special Needs Site! These are the top ten articles that your Children with Special Needs Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!
1. Recess Skills and Childhood Disabilities
Knowing recess games and practicing playground skills are an important part of preparing for the new school year and enjoying the year already underway.
2. IEP Goals for Children with Special Needs
Writing IEP goals for children with special needs can be a challenge for teachers and other school personnel who are not yet familiar with your child as an individual
3. Symptoms of Childhood Onset Diabetes
Knowing the symptoms of childhood onset diabetes can help prevent terrible consequences of undiagnosed and untreated Type 1 diabetes in children
4. Down Syndrome and Diabetes Dual Diagnosis
Only a few more children with Down syndrome develop insulin dependent diabetes than their mainstream peers. My son developed Type 1 diabetes when he was a slender seven year old, suddenly losing weight. He was diagnosed early because I read about symptoms reading about his sister's T1D classmate.
5. Teaching Math Skills
Teaching math skills to children with special needs can happen during everyday activities like shopping, cooking, and playing games
6. Kindergarten Transition
Planning the transition from preschool to kindergarten can include visiting available classrooms before summer break, considering an extra year of preschool in a transition or mainstream program, private kindergarten or homeschooling
7. New Parent Information on Down Syndrome
Information about Down syndrome for expectant or new parents should soon be the most reliable and up to date resources available. Individuals and advocacy or support organizations often take responsibility for making information packets available for local hospitals, doctors and counselors.
8. Teens with Disabilities - Transition to Adulthood
Children with special needs often have the same transition issues, instincts and preferences as their mainstream peers, and benefit from programs that address these as well as their individual needs
9. Teens and Pre-Teens with Down Syndrome
Teenagers and children in transition to adolescence who are growing up with Down syndrome often face the same challenges as their mainstream peers, and may also experience additional struggles that are just as important to evaluate and understand. Reliable resources are available for families.
10. TV Actors Who Have Down Syndrome
Television actors with Down syndrome have played many TV roles, including Jason Kingsley - The Fall Guy in 1984 and Chris Burke - Life Goes On 1989 - 1993; now, Luke Zimmerman - The Secret Life of the American Teenager; also Andrea Friedman, Brad Silverman, Louise Brown, Blair Williamson and others.
