1. Babies with Developmental Delays
Babies with developmental delays can grow up in the mainstream even if they qualify for services for those with a certain degree of delay in one of five areas of development. Many babies with delays respond well to early intervention as if they just had a different timetable of development.
2. 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.
3. Shoes for Children and Teens with Down Syndrome
Some children with Down syndrome have sensory issues or are especially troubled by shoes that have not been properly fitted and will kick them off at the worst possible times. Custom orthotics that fit in shoes half a size larger often help children and teens with balance and gait anomalies.
4. Teaching Handwriting to Children
Children may have difficulty learning handwriting due to physical or neurological immaturity, motor planning or sensory integration difficulties, developmental disability, or lack of opportunities, modifications or tools that accommodate, reduce or eliminate the challenges they face.
5. 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
6. 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
7. 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
8. Early Intervention for Developmental Delays
Children diagnosed with developmental delays find stimulation, support and encouragement in early intervention and specialized preschool classrooms as well as mainstream 'Mommy and Me' activities, baby gym and parks department programs.
9. Teaching Math Skills
Teaching math skills to children with special needs can happen during everyday activities like shopping, cooking, and playing games
10. Inclusive Playgroups for Babies and Toddlers
New moms looking for playgroups with other mothers of babies or toddlers can use social media or local resources to set up a series of introductory meetings with childhood specialists, parent educators, or others with expertise in development. Inclusive playgroups often lead to lifelong friendships.
