August is observed as Don’t Be a Bully Month. ❤️
With most kiddos going back to school it's important to teach kids what bullying is and how to handle it.
We should also take the time to tell our kids about the golden rule, if they don't already know it, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Our favorite book about bulling is Lama Lama and the Bully Goat by Anna Dewdney, take a minute and read it to your babies. It's a cute story with an important message, and who doesn't loves Lama Lama?!

January is National Braille Literacy Awareness Month.
Braille is a form of written language for blind people. It is a code/pattern of raised dots that are felt with the fingertips.

Braille awareness month is in honor of Louis Braille, who developed the code almost 200 years ago. He developed the code of raised dots to make text readable for individuals, like himself, who were blind.

Braille is increasingly being incorporated into todays technology. Braille displays may be used with computers, tablets, and smart phones so that the words in emails, documents, and texts appearing on the screen are also readable on the braille display attached.

Reading is a valuable tool, and it's something that everyone should have access too.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities

"December 3rd is the international day of persons with disabilities. The day was founded by the United Nations, and is intended to promote awareness and visibility for individuals with disabilities, and encourage advocacy on their behalf. Disabilities don't all look the same, nor are they always visible. December 3rd is an important reminder that no matter the disability, every individual deserves inclusion and dignity in every sphere of life.

According to the United Nation the day is intended to raise up individuals with mental and physical disabilities. All year round it is important to fight for inclusion and understanding because of the discrimination these individuals face, but on December 3rd the international community marks a specific day of awareness for those often overlooked.

Those with disabilities can face difficulties in day to day life that others aren't always aware of. They may require additional assistance with daily living skills or extra accommodations like ramps or elevators in public spaces. It's important to draw awareness to this to ensure that the public sphere is equally accessible to all, and individuals with disabilities can navigate spaces with the same facility and dignity as anyone. It's equally important to ensure that services are available to make their home lives comfortable and manageable.

Individuals with disabilities have historically faced discrimination, and many continue to face discrimination today. They have not always had access to equal opportunities in public life, so it's important to ensure that we continue fighting for their inclusion. Raising awareness to ensure that discrimination is not tolerated is extremely important, and fighting for equality is the primary objective of setting aside a day of awareness.

By designating December 3rd as a day of recognition we can remind ourselves of the importance of advocating for equality for individuals with disabilities every day."

Teamwork Makes IEP Meetings Positive & Productive

"Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings are essential in meeting the goals of a special needs child. When all parties are working toward the same goal, learning can be a joy instead of a stressful time. Attitude and teamwork are two of the most important factors in moving toward a goal of productive learning. Here are some tips in achieving the ultimate goal of helping a special needs child in their desire to learn.

Attention Problems with a Special Needs Child
Is your child prepared for your scheduled learning session or do they appear to be preoccupied with other thoughts? If there is a problem with focus, discuss the immediate problem with them and put off the session for a couple of hours. Try not to be upset or anxious in your desire to get to work. You want your child to be ready and focused on learning. Keep notes on the times when sessions are postponed. There could be built-up stress that is causing the delay.

Preparing for the IEP Meeting
Each learning session that has been spent with your child should be backed up with notes. For example, was the subject of math or spelling confusing to your child or was the session in general too stressful for them? Were there certain times of the day when attention seemed more focused? This information will come in handy when comparing notes with teachers and counselors.

Positive Interaction
Listen to the interaction that others have had with your child and keep a positive attitude. It can be easy to get defensive when others make suggestions in the learning process. Work together to find a reason why your child is stumbling in certain areas. Come up with a game plan for each party to use in order to solve the problem and stick to it until the next meeting. Each special needs child is different in how they absorb new information. Teamwork keeps a positive and productive flow to your child's capabilities.

November: The Perfect Time To Discuss Long Term Care

The month of November is usually associated with the beginning of the holiday season. It's a time of excitement, joy, and anticipation for the holidays ahead. However, for others, November is also known to be the annual designation to observe National Long-Term Care Awareness. Whether this long-term care is designated for an elderly parent or a special needs child, this awareness is meant as a time to bring these services into focus, and also a time to show support to the many caregivers that do so much.

The History Behind Long-Term Care Awareness Month
The National Long-Term Care Awareness Month was created in 2001 by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. Their purpose was to bring awareness to long-term care and how to plan for it. Statistics indicate that about 70% of men and women over the age of 65, will need some type of long-term care services. These services can be extremely taxing on the family, as they try to figure out payments and caregiver logistics. That's why raising awareness around this issue not only acknowledges the important role that caregivers provide but also starts the much-needed conversation of how to plan and prepare for long-term care.

What is Long-Term Care
The formal definition of long-term care is help which is provided to a person to help them through basic daily activities, over a period lasting longer than 90 days. There are many types of long-term care options that range from 24-hour, round-the-clock care to an occasional visit to check on their senior parent. One of the realizations that this long-term care awareness helps shed light on is how involved long-term care is. It's not just about supporting an elderly family member, or taking care of a special needs child. It's so much more than that. The caregiver does it all, everything from feeding, helping with personal care and daily tasks, to even bathing. These caregivers usually have to turn their life upside down, to make sure the needs of their loved ones are met. This usually results in caregivers permanently altering their job schedules or quitting their profession altogether, giving up luxuries like vacations to save money, or even neglecting their personal care to make sure they have the time to take care of their loved ones.

Caregiver Burnout
Taking care of someone around the clock can be physically and mentally exhausting. Not only does caregiving take a toll on personal finances, but all the added stress and anxiety that it entails impacts their personal health as well. That's why it's so important, as a caregiver to carve out some time and take care of themselves. Otherwise, the caregiver stress will eventually lead to caregiver burnout.
*10 Minute Breathing Technique: One of the easiest relaxation techniques to try is breath awareness. Even if it's just ten minutes a day, taking that time and focusing on your breathing, will not only help you relax but it's the perfect timeout for your mind and body.
*Yoga: Yoga is a great relaxation technique for a caregiver. Not only does it give the body the stress release that it needs, but it also helps the mind unwind. The best part, you can find free guided yoga sessions online.
*Remain Connected: It may be difficult to find the time to get away and connect with others when you are a medical caregiver, but it is essential for your health. Maintaining strong social connections will help a caregiver feel less isolated and prevent caregiver burnout. Whether it's connecting to other caregivers in a similar situation, attending support groups, or simply taking the time to call a friend, realizing that you're not alone, helps you not only recharge but strengthens your ability to be self-compassionate.

As families come together during this special time of year, November is the ideal time to start exploring long-term care options and planning ahead. This awareness is the first step, to not only bring up these important conversations with your family members but also acknowledge the caregivers that do so much for other people and get them the support they need as well.

A Primer On Epilepsy
November is a huge month for awareness: even leaving aside the famous No-Shave November, it's also National Long Term Care Awareness Month, National Alzheimer's Month, and National Family Caregivers Month. What many don't realize, however, is that it's also National Epilepsy Awareness Month. Although epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder, many still don't know what epilepsy is—or what to do when someone is having a seizure. Here's what you need to know.

What is epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects people of all ages with a variety of symptoms. If you have a brain, you can have epilepsy. The most common symptoms are a range of unpredictable seizures, but epilepsy is what's known as a spectrum condition, meaning that those who have epilepsy can display a huge variety of symptoms as individual as the person themselves.

What happens during an epileptic seizure?
Simply put, a seizure is a sudden increase in electrical activity in the brain. The precise location of the seizure within the brain and the extent of the activity vary from person to person, and the way that seizure manifests varies as well. In general, however, there are several stages that characterize many (although not all) epileptic seizures.

*Aura: an aura is often one of the first signs of seizure. It can be as general as a vague feeling of unsettlement or a specific shift in perspective, thinking, or emotions.
*Ictal Phase: this is the central part of the seizure and coincides with the increased electrical activity in the brain. During this phase, people may have trouble speaking, repeatedly blink or stare, become rigid, or lose consciousness altogether.
*Postictal Phase: this is the recovery from the electrical surge. For some, recovery comes quickly and they may resume normal behavior almost immediately; for others, recovery may take a few minutes or hours.

Are there different types of seizure?
All seizures fall into three categories based on onset.
*Generalized onset seizures, where both sides of the brain are affected.
*Focal onset seizures, where a certain level of awareness is maintained throughout onset of the seizure.
*Unknown onset seizures, when the beginning of the seizure is simply unknown.

Each of these types can be divided further and made more specific based on qualifying factors, like how aware a person was throughout the seizure and how quickly they recovered.

What should I do if someone has a seizure?
Although seizures can be frightening if you've never witnessed one before, is simple. Just remember three Ss—Stay, Safe, Side.
STAY: Stay with the person experiencing the seizure and set a timer to track the seizure's length. This can help identify the type of seizure later on.
SAFE: If the person having the seizure is close to any potentially harmful objects, carefully guide them to safety.
SIDE: If the person has lost consciousness, turn them onto their side and put something soft below their head for support.

Remember not to put anything in the mouth of an unconscious person, nor restrain them, even if there are involuntary movements that may seem dangerous.

Finally, stay with the person until they have regained consciousness and are alert. In most cases, seizures end after a few minutes.

When should I call 911?
If the seizure lasts longer than 5 minutes, occurs repeatedly or in water, or the person doesn't recover, call 911 immediately and use the Three Ss to keep the person safe until help arrives.
Over 150,000 people are diagnosed with epilepsy every year. Fortunately, with a little awareness of seizure protocol and first aid protocol, we can all help people with epilepsy be safer and protected in case of seizure."
