This DVD brings together parents and professionals from the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand to give an up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the years when kids learn to walk to just before adolescence. Along with the joys of childhood come the everyday challenges of parenthood, such as toilet training and behaviour issues, and the demands of caring for a child with special needs, including IEP preparation and working with health care professionals. Children with Down syndrome may also have medical concerns that require close attention, such as sleep apnea and issues related to hearing, nutrition, and exercise. This DVD takes a careful, comprehensive approach to provide all caregivers the roadmap they need. The approximate running time of this DVD is 120 minutes.
