Down Syndrome Stereotypes and Advocacy
In a recent articles, parent advocates have discussed the perils of marketing our sons and daughters with Down syndrome as merely 'cute' when we know better than anyone else that those who share their diagnosis are a complex, diverse and interesting community, even while they are young.

Age Appropriate Misbehavior - Toddlers Throw
Babies and toddlers with Down syndrome often engage in age-appropriate misbehavior as they pass through developmental milestones as early as their mainstream peers. Throwing food, plates and cups at meal time during the 'hold and release, cause and effect' stage can be delightful for the child.

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.

Teaching Reading to Children with Speech Delays
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.

Inclusive Playgroups for Babies and Toddlers
New moms looking for playgroups with other mothers of babies or toddlers can use social media or local resources to set up a series of introductory meetings with childhood specialists, parent educators, or others with expertise in development. Inclusive playgroups often lead to lifelong friendships.

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