autisticbirthday
Birthday parties are meant to be special days for a child. But for a 6-year-old Florida boy, the day was devastating. Though Glenn Buratti's mother Ashlee Buratti invited his entire class over for a party, none of the 16 kids showed up. Glenn is autistic.

apps

As a result of this, many techniques and models have been created in order to assist patients in maintaining the clinical progress that they have achieved in their typical once a week session.

tylenol
Expecting parents have growing concerns over Tylenol’s recent connection to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), with numerous findings reporting pregnant women’s use of Tylenol may be linked to the onset of ADHD in their school aged children.

There are many challenges facing the care of persons with mental illness. Most people who have been diagnosed face stigma from multiple directions, such as society, friends, family and health care practitioners and face obstacles to the best course of treatment depending on the philosophies of their healthcare provider.
