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. Creating an After-School Routine
After-school routines can help students with disabilities make an easier transition from school - or transportation - to home; reduce tension between children and parents; and give kids a head start in the morning. Planning, and visual schedules, can be as helpful at home as they are at school.

2. Negotiating an Inclusive Kindergarten Placement
A quarter century after children with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities demonstrated the benefits of mainstream kindergarten for themselves and their classmates, parents are still finding obstacles to enrolling their 5 year olds in neighborhood schools with their mainstream peers.

3. Advocating for Inclusion - Unexpected Benefits
While many parents advocate for inclusive classrooms and community programs in hopes of giving their children the opportunity to make friends and grow up with opportunities to participate in social activities throughout their lives, the unexpected benefits of inclusion are just as valuable.

4. Back to School with Down Syndrome
If you are a parent or a teacher expecting a student with Down syndrome in your classroom and plan to help other students to include a classmate with Down syndrome, congratulations. Classroom supports and inclusion do benefit mainstream classrooms, teachers and their schools.

5. Teaching Teens to Plan Meals and Cook
Children with disabilities can learn to plan meals and cook at home. Learning to follow or create their own favorite recipes is a great way to build a healthy lifestyle.

6. Person Centered Planning - Kids, Teens and Adults
Person Centered Planning is a process that can have a profound effect on an individual´s life, their community´s perspective, and the support, encouragement and opportunities your son or daughter might find during times of transition.

7. Teaching Babies to Self Soothe When Crying
Many babies who are are late to learn 'self-soothing' are not developmentally ready to take on that responsibility. Teaching an infant to self-soothe without being aware of what might be causing them physical discomfort or other distress is counterproductive to raising a resilient child.

8. 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

9. 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

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