Here are the top ten articles for the Children with Special Needs Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Spring Craft Ideas
Easter crafts and Easter art projects for children can ease the stress of holiday events and expectations

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Down Syndrome and Autism Dual Diagnosis
Families whose children with Down syndrome have autism or an autism spectrum disorder can find support and information online for this dual diagnosis

5. Dolls for Children with Disabilities
Beautiful dolls and toys that demonstrate the diversity of the children in our communities have been available for many years, and should be found and enjoyed in classrooms, daycare and our childrenīs toy collections. Some parents have found dolls with disabilities to be offensive representations.

6. 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

7. Diabetes Information for Classmates
Type One Diabetes Information for Classmates (and their families) explains diabetes and how to encourage or support friends who have type one diabetes, in school and after school. These helpful suggestions can also benefit staff, extended family, caregivers and neighbors who plan outings or events.

8. Strollers, Walkers and Wheelchairs for Children
Finding strollers, walkers and wheelchairs for children with mobility problems is a challenge for families whose children depend on the freedom and opportunity to get around on their own that assistive equipment may provide

9. 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.

10. Peer Mentoring Programs and Childhood Disability
Children with disabilities as well as their mainstream peers benefit from being included in peer mentoring and buddy programs in schools and community recreation.
