Each person with AS is going to have different abilities, not necessarily "special needs." As an adult Aspie, I would like understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and patience from the rest of society. (Of course if everyone were to accept and live by these principles, the world would be a much better… place!) My whole life I have felt different, like I just couldn't fit in. I was teased and bullied, I was abused. All I have ever wanted was to feel accepted, yet it is the one thing I can't achieve and have been prevented from attaining. If you know someone with AS, try to overlook the quirks, make them feel wanted and loved; help them if they ask for it. We want the same things as everyone else, we just don't know how to express it in socially acceptable ways all the time. (MORE)
It is certainly not at all funny to tell jokes about those with Down Syndrome and other special needs. How would you like it if people made fun of you for a medical condition that you can't help? People with Down Syndrome or other forms of mental retardation can be very loving, wonderful people and …should be treated with as much respect as anyone else. (MORE)
Of course. Kids are our future, and if we don't take care of them, how can we expect the future to be in good hands? Besides, when you were a kid (or if you still are), didn't you want people to care for you? Yes i do very much because i am a kid and if i didn't care for kids then i wouldn't care… for myself. but me and the other kids are our futures so adults should stop being so mean and treat us with respect or when we will be the future were gonna mess up the human race and it will be ALL UR FAULT! unless you are a kid then you are cool.

Yes they can and very well. There are many informative sites concerning the education and no-limits-thinking to promote individual development and achievement of Downs syndrome children.
I am a paramedic who wishes to know if there are any special needs when it comes to birth death and medical care in an out of hospital setting for those of the Jehovah faith?
FROM A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS . All baptised Jehovah's Witnesses should have with their personal identification, i.e., driver's licence, etc, a document referred to as a "medical directive." It is clearly marked, and is a folded document, that will be the size of a driver's licence, but unfolds to about… 5"X7." It will advise medical personel of the wishes of the JW patient. This documant will also indicate, in the event of the patient being not able to function as their own spokesman, the name and contact information of who will be authorized to act as this one's agent on their behalf. This is a binding legal document.. As a matter of faith, our only medical restriction that we observe is the Bible's command to keep "abstaining... from blood." So, in obedience to what we feel is a mandate from God, Jehovah's Witnesses who have made a conscious decision to obey that law, do not accept whole blood or any of blood's four main componets: platelets, white cells, red cells, or plasma. Whether the individual JW has decided to accept certain smaller blood fractions is a matter of each individual's conscience, and will be outlined in the medical document I just referred to.. JW's seek medical treatment when neccessary. When we are sick or injured, we go to the doctor, and we go to the hospital, just like anybody else. Some other religions try to heal by faith or prayer, and encourage their members to avoid doctors. Not JW's. We do not believe in miraculous faith and prayer healings in this modern day. We have faith that Jesus and his disciples did do these types of healings in the past, but we believe that these miracles no longer occurred after the first century, thus they do not happen today. So when you encounter one of JW's in a car accident or some other emergency situation, as a paramedic remember that you are dealing with a person that is pretty much just like you or anyone else, with this one and only restriction. Don't administer blood into the patient per the restriction indicated in the medical directive document.. As far as death is concered, we do not have any special religious needs in the handling of a dead body. Once the life of a person is no longer active, we do not believe that there is any special significance to the body itself, other than the emotional needs of the relatives of the deceased. So whatever the local laws or standard procedures in the handling of a dead person are in your area, these will be appropriate in handling of the the death of a JW, as in the death of anyone else.. As far as a birth is concerned, again, no special considerations would be asked for except as directed by the patient's personal medical directive that they would be carrying with all their other personal identification. It should be noted that in some areas, the placenta and ambilical cord are saved for the purpose of extracting blood for medical use. A JW who has consciously decided against the use of blood for their own treatment would also logically request that their ambilical cord and placenta not be used in this way. If there is very good reason to believe that such a practice is followed in the hospital where a JW will give birth, the patient would probably instruct the physician of their wishes in the handling of the placenta and the ambilical cord.. Generally speaking, as far as the paramedic in the field is concerned, treating the Jehovah's Witness will be like treating anyone else. No doubt minimizing blood loss is already a top priority for medical technicians at the scene, and decisions regarding blood transfusions are made and administered at the hospital. However, if the paramedic is aware of the fact that the patient is one of Jehovah's Witnesses, it would be good to pass this information along to hospital staff upon arrival to the hospital. (MORE)
The best care will be to keep it clen and to cover the car while parked in the direct sun. The soft top is more vulnerable compared to the paint of the car.
A care setting is somewhere that people get care from or is left to be cared for. some examples: A hospital , a doctors, a nursery, care centers, hospice, residential home
Yes, i believe that children with Down Syndrome should be with their mothers. No one can ever take the place of a mother and love the child the way a mother does.
One thing children need stability in their life and the ability to value morals so they can become strong well-rounded adults.
Sarah Palin's youngest child is a boy named Trig Palin (in full, Trig Paxson Van Palin). Trig was born on 18 April 2008 and has Down syndrome.
The emotional needs of a child with Down Syndrome or any other disability are the same as any child-- to be loved, respected, cherished, to feel parents/caregivers are proud of them, and to feel safe in their homes as they grow up. All children need kindness and love but also direction, guidance and… rules, with consequences so that all children will know appropriate boundaries and social norms. (MORE)

I have a 4-year-old son with Down syndrome. "Special needs" is just a way of saying that the person with the disability will need extra attention in every aspect of their lives. For example, early intervention in babies and young children with "special needs" is always good. It helps them get sta…rted in learning and/or experiencing life. Kids with Down syndrome learn slower than typically advanced people. Yes, they need help with learning, but that does not mean that they do not learn at all. =] There is no list of "special needs," but rather that everything requires extra attention and help. (MORE)
They do things like a typical child; they can do everything that a "normal" child can do.
A down syndrome child is fairly normal depending on the percentage of the case i.e. the intensity of the patient. I would know this because my sister is a down syndrome child having it at only 5%. Basing on her case, her behaviour is normal although her appearance may show some signs. For instance,… her cheeks were drooped downwards during the first few 13 months. She constantly hiccuped for some reason and had a problem with balance when she sits down. At later age her apperance changed gradually to normal and her hiccup stopped. Her understanding also quickened and she was rather smart. In short, what I'm trying to put out is that you could take care of her just like you would take care of a perfectly normal child. Support is also vital and her meals must be balanced. (MORE)
The nutritional needs for child with Downs Syndrome would be same as any child with two possibly three difference: Their immune system tends to be weaker so more fruit would help with vitamin C; Since their activity level maybe lower than average child watching how much calories they intake would be… helpful to guard against over weight; Many take anti-seizure medication Dilatin which hamper the body naturally getting B12 from food so more dark green vegetables including broccoli spinach dark green lettuce might help because they have high levels of B12.

How do you meet the needs of all children in your setting including those with disabilities or special needs?
By setting, I assume you mean somewhere other than home - like a play group, day care setting, after school setting, etc. In any case, the best source would be the parent or primary care taker. I would develop a short - 1-2 page form for parents and care takers to profile their children. It would be…gin with basic information about the child - age, reading ability, toileting, feeding - then ask for more specific information. You could ask for information about any diagnosis the child might have, therapies, diets, specific interventions. You could use open ended questions and multiple choice - to make sure that the form is easy to complete while still providing a good snap shot of the child and his/her abilities and challenges. After an initial intake - I would follow up with an intake interview where more notes and suggestions are provided. Ask questions like - how well does the child communicate his/her needs, favorite toys, foods, re-inforcers, routines followed. After all of this, I would welcome the parent to communicate as needed - email, daily/weekly journals to parents and the occasional phone call should keep everyone up to speed, handling any issues and seizing any opportunities to help the child thrive.

You should make a foundation. Make it popular. Make posters to advertise it like Hunter's Hope for example. Many people will make donations.
YES! Just in case, a pitbull should never be around another , especially strange, pitbull of the same gender. They need lots of room and love, but special care also depends on the personality of the dog!
Teachers who work with children who have disabilities in the UK are known as special educational needs (SEN) teachers. A The prerequisite for becoming an SEN teacher is qualified teacher status (QTS). B This is generally achieved by completing one of the following: B . Postgraduate Certificate… of Education (PGCE); . School-centred initial teacher training (SCITT); . Bachelor of Education (BEd); . BA or BSc with QTS. With regards to undergraduate degree type, the following advice is given: C "teacher training is open to graduates in all subjects, but a degree in a curriculum subject area, e.g. English, science, or mathematics, increases your chances". As such it would seem sensible to chose A-levels that also fit into the above areas of the curriculum. Please see related links for further information.

No, but it is likely the child will have special needs with regard to his or her education. An evaluation must be done to determine if there are Asperger's Syndrome symptoms that do require adjustments.

Yes, horses need to have their feet trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks, or more often than if they have "shoes". They also need to have regular shots and wormer to keep them healthy. Something else, that would be good, is that they need their teeth 'floated' every couple years or when their teeth get pointy… to reduce discomfort. Some horses even need special supplements and food. Overall, though, 'special care' depends on the horse. (MORE)
