1. Age Appropriate Misbehavior - Toddlers Throw
Babies and toddlers with Down syndrome often engage in age-appropriate misbehavior as they pass through developmental milestones as early as their mainstream peers. Throwing food, plates and cups at meal time during the 'hold and release, cause and effect' stage can be delightful for the child.
2. When Diabetes is Like Holding a Tiger by the Tail
Children and teens with insulin-dependent diabetes (type one) may experience a 'honeymoon phase' of what seems like controllable blood glucose where almost every reading is within the typical range. When the honeymoon is over, families may feel that diabetes is like holding a tiger by its tail
3. Teens with Type One Diabetes
Teens with Type 1 Diabetes face the same challenges of adolescence as their mainstream peers, with the added stress of managing a chronic condition with terrible complications. They deserve ongoing support and encouragement whether diagnosed in early childhood or while dealing with a new diagnosis.
4. Disability Advocacy and Unintended Consequences
Disability awareness and advocacy has long been fueled by medical and education professionals, family members, and others who have neither grown up with or experienced disability issues on a daily basis. Individuals with disability bear the brunt of the unintended consequences of uninformed efforts.
5. 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
6. Traumatic Interventions and Childhood Disabilities
Children and teens with disabilities may experience traumatic stress resulting from ignorance, prejudice or poverty in their communities that may not be related to a diagnosis, but some interventions can also create painful or emotionally unbearable situations difficult to survive.
7. Back to School with Diabetes
Creating a back-to-school care plan for children with diabetes can build a child's self-confidence, give parents peace of mind, and help school staff and administrators provide a safe and effective learning environment.
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. 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.
10. Accueillir les bébé trisomiques WBwDS / French
Si vous accueillez un nouveau né trisomique dans votre famille, vous avez probablement beaucoup de questions et d´appréhension, de même que votre parenté, amis et voisins. Traduit de l´anglais " Welcoming Babies with Down Syndrome" French translation
