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. Self-Contained Classrooms, Institutional Buildings
The history of self-contained classrooms, and institutional buildings in school district education programs for students aged 3 to 21, can help us understand how inclusion benefits children with disabilities through their daily environment as well as enhancing educational and social opportunities.

2. 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

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. 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

5. Choosing Inclusive Summer Camps
There may be as many kinds of summer camps available in your area specifically for children with disabilities as there are mainstream or inclusive camps. Making a decision on which camp to choose may depend as much on a philosophy of parenting as it does on location, amenities, and cost.

6. Environmental Issues and Childhood Disabilities
Environmental dangers to children require strict regulations and earnest measures to reduce or eliminate disease, infection and related childhood disabilities. Dangers include toxic chemicals in products and environments; all types of indoor air; soil and water pollution; and inadequate sanitation.

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

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. 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!
