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. Early Intervention in Underserved Areas
Families of babies and young children with disabilities in rural and remote areas may not be aware of or have access to early intervention strategies or educational support that encourages and accommodates their child with special needs.

2. Advocating in Multicultural Communities
Advocating in multicultural communities and outreach by diverse ethnic groups builds stronger support for all our children and families

3. Elementary School Transition
Transitions during the elementary school years can be well planned and supported so that children with special needs may concentrate on educational opportunities, maintaining self confidence and developing healthy relationships.

4. 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.

5. Transition to Preschool from Early Intervention
Help in understand evaluations, planning, options and resources involved in transition from early intervention or home-based services to preschool can be found through local early intervention centers, school districts, parent groups and advocacy organizations

6. Speech, Feeding Therapy, and Early Intervention
Speech therapy and feeding therapy are available to many children in early intervention programs for delayed communication or articulation difficulties; you may find information and specialists who are just the ticket for your child!

7. Kindergarten and Childhood Disabilities
Parent advocates in the past quarter century have found that creating an inclusive placement for their children's kindergarten year is the best way to improve opportunities and access for the rest of their children's school years and transition to adulthood.

8. Disability Advocacy and Awareness
Disability advocacy and awareness helps children with special needs grow up included and supported in their neighborhoods and schools, and provides valuable lessons to their mainstream peers and community.

9. End Aversive Restraints and Seclusion in School
Use of time-out or seclusion rooms, physical restraints and other aversive techniques for any child ~ and especially for students who communicate mainly through their behavior ~ should be eliminated from the written policies and all practices of our children's schools, care and education facilities

10. 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.
