Brownie and Girl Scout troops in your community may already include classmates and neighbors who have developmental disabilities like Down syndrome, chronic health conditions like insulin dependent diabetes, or other special needs. Information and support are available to Girl Scout leaders.
2. 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
3. Helicopter Parenting and Childhood Disability
4. 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
5. 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.
6. 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
7. Strangers Observing My Son with Down Syndrome
People in public who stare at children with Down syndrome without smiling or greeting them can make parents uncomfortable or angry. When my son was younger, I decided to approach strangers who stopped to watch him, and discovered that there are many stories out there in the world I do not know.
8. Adaptive Dance Classes and Down Syndrome
Children with developmental disabilities and physical challenges have shown that they can perform beautifully and express themselves through dance and theater wherever they have opportunities to show their talents and develop their skills.
9. Medical ID Bracelets for Children and Teens
Identification bracelets, tags and other jewelry are especially important for children and teens who have conditions like diabetes, autism, Down syndrome, asthma or seizures, speech impairments and/or developmental disabilities. There are varieties that suit different fashion needs and special needs
10. Scaphocephaly and Craniosynostosis
Scaphocephaly, the most common type of craniosynostosis, is most often diagnosed in newborns who have ridged, missing or quickly closing 'soft spots' or fontanelles, or unusually shaped skulls growing too slowly. Immediate medical attention by a pediatric neurologist or surgeon may be required.
