1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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
4. Teaching Reading to Nonverbal Children
Even today, children who are nonverbal or preverbal may lack the opportunities they deserve to learn to read or write, or may not be recognized as readers or writers when they have learned the skills but have not been provided the tools needed to show that they have learned to do so.
5. Dolls for Children with Disabilities
Beautiful dolls and toys that demonstrate the diversity of the children in our communities have been available for many years, and should be found and enjoyed in classrooms, daycare and our children´s toy collections. Some parents have found dolls with disabilities to be offensive representations.
6. Shoes for Children and Teens with Down Syndrome
Some children with Down syndrome have sensory issues or are especially troubled by shoes that have not been properly fitted and will kick them off at the worst possible times. Custom orthotics that fit in shoes half a size larger often help children and teens with balance and gait anomalies.
7. Bilingual Children with Down Syndrome
Bilingual families whose child with Down syndrome or other developmental disability has also learned a second or third language have demonstrated the importance of giving every child the opportunity to grow up bilingual or multilingual
8. Welcoming Babies with Down Syndrome
If you have a beautiful new baby in your family diagnosed with Down syndrome, you may have questions and concerns about to find the best possible support and encouragement available for a wonderful quality of life, richness of experience, and opportunities to reach his or her full potential.
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
