Extractions: Well, I am 35 yrs old and have 5 children and one granddaughter, my 11 year old son, Willie, has spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, epilepsy, severe asthma, and is visually impaired. Willie has cp due to what is technically called partial agenesis of the corpus colosum very fancy and ugly words that simply mean that the connecting tissues for the two halves of Willie's brain never fully developed. No one knows why this happened, or how this happened infact very little is known about this condition. It is very rare occuring about once in every 20,000 births. I volunteer online as a free disability rights advocate and work privately in life as a paid advocate. Most of the cases I fight online are adult cases and most of the cases I handle in life are children's issues.

Extractions: Foundation reaches $50 million mark in donated dental care By Stacie Crozier Denver Since launching its Donated Dental Services program in 1986, the National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped has provided more than $50 million in comprehensive dental services to disabled, elderly and medically compromised individuals who couldnt otherwise afford or find access to care. Today's stories Oral health grants Ohio Medicaid Tech Day But for the volunteer dentists who provide care, the dental laboratories who donate materials and services, the donors who help support the program andmost importantlythe patients who are served, the value of the foundations contributions nationwide is priceless. NFDHs primary program, which has provided comprehensive care to some 44,000 special needs patients, is now based in 33 states, and four more are slated to join DDS in the near future. More than 10,000 volunteer dentists have signed on to provide comprehensive care for local DDS patients in their own offices at a level of involvement that they choose, from a few patients each year to several each month. More than 2,500 dental laboratories, materials and supply companies also donate their time, services and products for the program.

Extractions: According to her four out of every 40 children in a school suffer from some kind of disability but the Indian psyche denies these disorders. "The parents do not want to accept that their children have a problem. They try to hide it from family and friends. They want their children to study like other children because in India we put studies above every thing else," she said. The training at the school will help train teachers to counsel parents into accepting that their children have special needs. "Being a special educator is a calling that you attend to and not a job. You have got to learn to be patient," she said. These children should be made productive, according to her. "Why should they be like parasites? Why do they need to worry their parents all the time? They can be trained to do work like baking, catering and data entry," she said. Vasudha's school will train teachers on hands-on activities that these children can work on. The school will be open for admissions in December at the MGR Janaki College of Engineering at Adyar. Classes will be conducted from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Currently, Dr. Natarajan is working on establishing a Teacher Training Institute to meet the needs of the special education students in Tamil Nadu. The Institute will also offer services like assessments, remedial measures, identifying appropriate educational material to be used and conducting regular workshops for parents, teachers and other caregivers.
