School’s in Session A Help in Several Areas

Hope you are all doing the Hallelujah Hop with me now that school is back in session!  I have several links to share–a bit for everyone to enjoy!

The first surprised me!  It talks about the prevalency of dyslexia.  The timing on this seems especially good, because it mentions how to get some help in the classroom for dyxlexia. http://www.everydayhealth.com/sanjay-gupta/dyslexia-in-the-classroom.aspx.

For those with autistic children the following article may prove to be fascinating, especially if they have a propensity for math!

And because many children with disabilites are the target of bullies the following article has some good points to make:

Three in one fell swoop, but with school beginning it seemed appropriate.

ADHD, Allergies, Asthma

Interesting as I have been doing Interactive Metronome with clients, how many of them start itching like crazy–all that clapping sets off histamines in their bodies–the histamines from the allergies, and asthma so prevalent in these children.  It sometimes is the first realization for the parents that their child has allergies! There is definitely a relationship, but I found it insightful that the statistics are so high. I have to say that Melaleuca products seriously DO help with asthma especially.

We Are What We Eat!

After yet another battle with a teen foster daughter over my refusal to buy Mountain Dew, here comes information to support my cause.  I do let her get Mountain Dew when we are out, but refuse to buy it for the home. We needn’t become ridiculous,, but every little bit that we can change positively in our diets can have long term positive effects.  Also there is a lot of evidence that diet can make a huge difference for children with ADHD, Autism, Sensory issues and other special needs.
