Dental treatment of handicapped patients using endotracheal anesthesia. (1/110)Dental treatment using endotracheal anesthesia is indicated where acute odontogenic infections, accidental injuries, or multiple caries and periodontitis marginalis require surgical and/or restorative treatment. It is also indicated where it is not possible to use psychological support during local anesthesia or during premedication or analgosedation. Dental treatment of handicapped patients using endotracheal anesthesia is described, along with indication and frequency of such treatment. The state of the dentition is illustrated, along with its relationship to the oral hygiene the handicapped patients receive. The main points of the intraoperative dental procedures and the follow-up of patient care are reported.

Anesthetic considerations of two sisters with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. (2/110)Anesthetic considerations of 21-mo-old and 4-yr-old sisters with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome during surgical repair of cleft palate and reduction of macroglossia are presented and discussed. This syndrome is characterized by exomphalos, macroglossia, gigantism, hypoglycemia in infancy, and many other clinical features. This syndrome is also known as exomphalos, macroglossia, and gigantism (EMG) syndrome. Principal problems associated with anesthetic management in this syndrome are hypoglycemia and macroglossia. Careful intraoperative plasma glucose monitoring is particularly important to prevent the neurologic sequelae of unrecognized hypoglycemia. It is expected that airway management would be complicated by the macroglossia, which might cause difficult bag/mask ventilation and endotracheal intubation following the induction of anesthesia and muscle paralysis, so preparations for airway difficulty (e.g., awake vocal cord inspection) should be considered before induction. A nasopharyngeal airway is useful in relieving postoperative airway obstruction. (+info)
General anesthesia for disabled patients in dental practice. (3/110)We reviewed the cases of 91 consecutive patients with disabilities who required general anesthesia at a tertiary referral center for dental treatment with a view to determining the factors that create difficulties in the anesthetic management. The more important of these are the special difficulties involved in making preoperative assessments of these patients and the difficulty in establishing monitoring. Other difficulties in anesthesia for these patients involve problems with gaining intravenous access, problems in determining when there has been adequate recovery from anesthesia, and problems in determining the degree of discomfort or pain the patients experience after dental treatment. Another potential hazard in this group of patients is the risk of drug interactions. We emphasize the need to train anesthetists in the care of disabled patients. (+info)
Behaviour management needs for the orthodontic treatment of children with disabilities. (4/110)A displeasing dental appearance may have a significant emotional impact on an individual's well being. Although malocclusions occur more often in physically and/or mentally handicapped children than in normal children, the most severely handicapped patients are those least likely to receive orthodontic treatment. This investigation studied the modes of behaviour management used in the orthodontic treatment of disabled children, and the preferred criteria. The files of 49 disabled children were retrospectively evaluated. Two classification systems, the Frankl Behaviour Rating Scale (FBRS), and that of Owen and Graber were found to be unsuitable for determining the appropriate treatment modality. Five specific factors, frequently seen in disabled children, gag reflex, drooling, uncontrollable movements, inability to remain still, and the need for additional procedures, were graded and a scoring system was devised to include these factors within the assessment. This scoring system may be used to evaluate new patients and to assist in the choice of the appropriate behavioural management mode. (+info)
Orthodontic treatment for disabled children: motivation, expectation, and satisfaction. (5/110)This study was designed to measure motivation for and expectations of proposed orthodontic treatment for disabled children, and to examine the level of satisfaction with the results of this treatment, in the eyes of the parents. A two-part questionnaire was sent to the parents of consecutively treated disabled children. The first part was sent to the parents of all the patients treated, while the second was only sent to those whose child had completed treatment. The response rate was over 90 per cent. The parents expected improvement in the child's appearance with a concomitant improvement in his/her social acceptance. These expectations from the treatment were found to be exaggerated, with only a minority of the parents claiming a marked improvement in their child's everyday functioning (four out of 27), or a significant social improvement (six out of 27). Nevertheless, most of the parents (26 out of 27) were satisfied with the treatment, and reported that 17 of the children themselves, who were aware of a change, considered it an improvement. A majority of the children understood the reasons for treatment, in the most general of terms. Close friends regarded treatment results as positive (20 out of 27). With only one exception, the parents stated that they would repeat the procedure, given the same set of circumstances, and all of them would recommend it for other disabled children. It may be concluded that even though orthodontic treatment in this groups of patients does not yield the desired social influence, the individual benefits from the treatment are worthwhile. (+info)
Safe orthodontic bonding for children with disabilities during general anaesthesia. (6/110)General anaesthesia (GA) may be employed to overcome management difficulties in the orthodontic treatment of disabled children. This report introduces the application of a rubber dam as a useful aid for a high quality bonding and as an effective safeguard in bonding of brackets in general anaesthesia, in the handicapped in particular. GA was used in 12 patients, of a cohort of 49 disabled patients, to facilitate the placing of the fixed appliance. The first seven were bonded solely with the use of an oropharyngeal pack and a high velocity suction to prevent aspiration, and the last five additionally underwent placement of a rubber dam. The use of a rubber dam to facilitate the safe and reliable bonding of orthodontic brackets in handicapped children under general anaesthesia is highly recommended. (+info)
Orthodontic treatment for disabled children--a survey of patient and appliance management. (7/110)The objective of this article was to investigate the management problems encountered during the orthodontic treatment of children with disability, and took the form of a retrospective analysis. The investigation took place at the Center for the Treatment of Cranio-facial Disorders, Department of Orthodontics, Hebrew University Hadassah School of Dental Medicine, Jerusalem, Israel, between years 1989 and 1997. The subjects were the 37 children with mental and/or physical disability whose orthodontic treatment was either completed or nearly completed, whose parents were given a questionnaire. Thirty-five patients responded with a mean age of 13 years (range 7-21 years), representing 94.6 per cent of the sample. Most of the patients (94.3 per cent) were able to conclude the orthodontic treatment and 91.4 per cent of the parents reported that the added responsibilities were either negligible or bearable. In 63 per cent of the children, compliance increased during the treatment as anxiety decreased. The problems encountered with fixed appliances were generally more severe than with removable appliances. The two major obstacles were attendance at frequent and regular intervals (37.1 per cent) and maintaining an appropriate level of oral hygiene (37.1 per cent). Children with a disability are able and willing to undergo orthodontic treatment. Recommendations intended to facilitate management are presented. (+info)
The face of a child: children's oral health and dental education. (8/110)Dental care is the most common unmet health care need of children. Those at increased risk for problems with oral health and access to care are from poor or minority families, lack health insurance, or have special health care needs. These factors place more than 52 percent of children at risk for untreated oral disease. Measures of access and parental report indicate unmet oral health needs, but do not provide guidance as to the nature of children's oral health needs. Children's oral health needs can be predicted from their developmental changes and position in the life span. their dependency and environmental context, and current demographic changes. Specific gaps in education include training of general dentists to care for infants and young children and those with special health care needs, as well as training of pediatric providers and other professionals caring for children in oral health promotion and disease prevention. Educational focus on the technical aspects of dentistry leaves little time for important interdisciplinary health and/or social issues. It will not be possible to address these training gaps without further integration of dentistry with medicine and other health professions. Children's oral health care is the shared moral responsibility of dental and other professionals working with children, parents, and society. Academic dental centers hold in trust the training of oral health professionals for society and have a special responsibility to train future professionals to meet children's needs. Leadership in this area is urgently needed. (+info)
Types of Patient: Special Needs | American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists
The special needs population is very diverse. The reasons for sedation and anesthesia are just as varied. How they are pre-medicated (to get into the dental chair and have an intravenous started), induced (put to sleep), maintained (stay asleep) and emerge (wake up) depends on their needs and dental treatment requirements.. The special needs patient can be very challenging to treat in the general dental office environment. How we treat this patient population depends on their physical (wheelchair bound, contractures, uncontrolled movements, etc.) and mental ability to cope with entering the dental office or treatment room, and allowing an intravenous to be started.. Many special needs patients are pre-medicated to facilitate their arrival for treatment. Pre-medication usually consists of taking a pill form of an antianxiety medication prior to treatment. The uncooperative or violent special needs patient may also receive an injection in the shoulder or a mask to help with intravenous ...

For Your Special Needs Child: Making the Holiday Break Special, Healthy, & Fun! by Teri Arranga | autismone.org
For Your Special Needs Child: Making the Holiday Break Special, Healthy, & Fun! The most important thing about engaging in holiday activities with a child with special needs or engaging the attention of a child with special needs is this: the child must be feeling well and be "present." A child who is not feeling well or who is "zoned out" or who is exhibiting maladaptive or combative behaviors will not have the same positive experience as a child who is alert and fit, and the experience wont be as happy for caregivers or family members. Sometimes these behaviors are the result of illness, pain, imbalanced gut flora and their sequelae, inflammation, reactions to allergenic foodstuffs, incomplete digestion, or lack of energy. Many children with special needs have metabolic, gastrointestinal, and immune situations that have been visibly helped by a special diet and enhanced nutrition. For example, casein and gluten are problematic food components for so many children. These proteins go through ...
Sensory Integration Disorder: An Independent Consultant's View of Mental Health Disorders and Special Needs
According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, one in five children from birth to 18 has a diagnosable mental disorder. Moreover, one in 10 youths has mental health problems that are serious enough to impair how they function at home, in school, or in the community in which they live. Among the diagnosable mental disorders common in children are anxiety, mood disorder such as depression, and disruptive disorders such as attention deficit and hyperactive disorders.. Special needs, however, are a different concern. Special needs is an umbrella term under which a broad array of diagnosis can be put. Children with special needs may have learning disabilities that range from being mild to profound mental retardation. They may have developmental delays from which they may catch up quickly or some from which they may not catch up at all. Also they may have an occasional panic attack or serious psychiatric problems. Some special needs that can be clearly diagnosed include fetal alcohol ...
Child Care and Children with Special Needs: Challenges for Low Income Families, 2002-2005
This project was a mixed-method, multi-level study of low income families of children with special needs and the system which served them, focusing primarily on child care, employment, and balancing work and family. This approach included an analysis of existing national and state-level data sets, statewide surveys of parents and child care providers, and a field study to look at these issues at the local level in three selected communities in the state of Maine: Portland, Lewiston/Auburn, and Presque Isle. While the primary focus was on access to child care, this project also looked at the related issues of welfare reform, the impact of work force participation on having a child with special needs, and the issue of coordination of early intervention services with the child care system. The goal was to understand better the issues facing low income families with special needs children across the programs and policies affecting their employment, access to child care, and meeting the special needs ...

Back to School with Special Needs; An Interview with CARD Founder, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh | autismone.org
Kirkman Group, Inc. The abrupt change in schedule as well as the extra stimuli children face in a school environment can bring out some of their worst behaviors, and possibly cause regression, making back to school a challenging time for both parents and children with special needs. Learning how to address these behaviors before school starts can be a valuable tool for any parent. Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh from the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Inc. (CARD) discusses some of the challenges children with special needs face when going back to school, as well as addresses what parents and teachers can do to make the transition a smooth one. What are some of the main challenges kids with special needs face when they go back to school? Depending on the childs level of functioning, he or she will face many additional challenges at school when compared to a typically developing child. In addition to having to work harder in areas of deficit (i.e. language, social skills, executive functioning, ...
Mom opens her heart to children with special needs | News24
I remember when I wanted to take my son to a special school, they charged me R2 000 and I couldnt afford it because I was unemployed. "So, I thought to myself how can I teach my son?" she said.. Upon doing research online and reading up on her sons autism condition, and after being told by doctors that he was blind and would never be able to walk or talk properly, she started to homeschool him.. "I started educating myself about his condition and talking to other parents who are also homeschooling their special needs children. They gave me the necessary resources and little by little I started seeing an improvement in my sons condition.". It is thereafter that she decided to use the skills that she had gained through taking care of her son to help other parents in the same situation.. She then began babysitting and teaching children with special needs from her small home. "Most parents in the township segregate their special needs children at home as means of protecting them from the outside ...

Now, I tittled this post the nurse care manager because Ive avoided this person. A nurse care manager is appointed to those kids that have complex special needs. Connor is considered/evaluated as a special needs level 3 kid.

(my disclaimer this post needs to be if youre special needs sensitive and are going to get all hung up on wording or emotions stop reading now) .....well, to say we have ignored this diagnosis of Connor being special needs is an understatement. We dont like seeing it in print and we dont like it said out loud. Part of us feels like if you cant walk, then youre special needs. Otherwise, your are whining and can park like everyone else, pay the extra fee like everyone else and basically, accept your additional faults and respect those that truly ...

Dos and Don'ts for Parents of Children With Special Needs | Fox News
Parents second-guess themselves all the time. Should I have let him go to that party? Was I too hard on her? Should I tell him to study more? Parents of children with special needs question themselves about day-to-day parenting decisions and much more. Parents of children with special needs have children with very specific emotional, social, and academic needs and often little or no training or education in these areas. While you dont need to know every strategy for educating your child, you do need to know how to communicate with your childs school. Consider this your general To Do and Not-To-Do list, which supports that communication. Remember- communication with the experts educating your child ultimately results in steps forward for his education.
3 Cutting Edge Approaches for Treating Children with Special Needs by Dr. Shelese Pratt - Seeking Health Educational Institute
Over the years Ive had the honor of working with many challenging but rewarding complex neurological cases. In naturopathic medical school I learned how to tackle cases by looking at physiology and biochemistry. When you understand how the body is supposed to work it is easier to figure out how it goes rogue. I have been blessed to see even the most challenging genetic conditions and developmental delayed children gain function. Many therapies for special needs children are helpful but often fall short of helping them reach their true potential. Over the years Ive found three modalities stand out in treating special needs children: Strategic nutrition based on biochemistry and epigenetics, Crossinologys® Brain Integration Technique, and Anat Baniel Method.. Employing strategic nutrition based on biochemistry has improved several of my most difficult patient cases. Many patients need specialized diets. Some people require special diet plans based on what kind of flora they have growing in ...

12 special needs novels that will touch your heart - Friendship Circle - Special Needs Blog : Friendship Circle - Special Needs...
by Kim Edwards. Edwardss novel hinges on the birth of fraternal twins, a healthy boy and a girl with Down syndrome, resulting in the fathers disavowal of his newborn daughter. A snowstorm immobilizes Lexington, Ky., in 1964, and when young Norah Henry goes into labor, her husband, orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Henry, must deliver their babies himself, aided only by a nurse. Seeing his daughters handicap, he instructs the nurse to take her to a home and later tells Norah, who was drugged during labor, that their son Pauls twin died at birth. Instead of institutionalizing Phoebe, the nurse absconds with her to Pittsburgh. Davids deception becomes the defining moment of the familys lives and Phoebes absence corrodes their core over the next 25 years. Davids undetected lie warps his marriage; he grapples with guilt; Norah mourns her lost child; and Paul not only deals with his parents icy relationship but with his own yearnings for his sister as well.. ...

Improving Emergency Department Information Flow in the Pacific Northwest | David Raths | Healthcare Blogs
One of the promises of health information exchange is better communication between hospitals and community healthcare providers about patients, including efforts to reduce emergency department utilization rates and ensure people are receiving care in the most appropriate setting.. To improve their information flow, hospitals in Washington state have turned to a solution called the Emergency Department Information Exchange (EDIE), a software tool for proactively notifying EDs when high-utilization or special needs patients register. The information includes those patients prior ED visit history, primary care provider information, and associated care plans.. The Washington State Health Care Authority reports that use of EDIE by hospital EDs has helped save the state a projected $31 million annually. The HCA also reports a 23 percent visit reduction in unnecessary ED visits by Medicaid patients with more than 5 visits in 12 months. Based on this early success in Washington, the Oregon Health ...

Special needs: a guide | News
Carolyn OGrady looks at some of the most common conditions and gives details of useful organisations. In its Green Paper, Excellence for all Children: Meeting Special Educational Needs (DFEE 1997), the Government made it clear that pupils with special needs should be taught in mainstream schools wherever possible, and in December 1999, it strengthened its commitment by announcing plans to introduce a Disability in Education Bill in the current session of Parliament. Most primary teachers will probably already have several children with special needs in their classes, but this number is set to rise and there will be more pressure on schools to identify and meet the needs of such children. Some will have needs that have already been identified. Others will have undiagnosed disabilities or difficulties that emerge while the child is at school. The following is a list of special needs that primary teachers are likely to meet. It indicates sources of help, but the first port of call should always be ...

Special Needs - NappyvalleyNET
With the child population growing, the demand for provision of support for children and young people with special needs is growing too. The aim of local authorities is to enable as many children as possible to access a mainstream education, even though the trend for schools to go down an ever more academic route means increasingly frequent tests, which may be far beyond some children. There are also practical challenges, such as when a physically disabled child can only access classrooms on the ground floor and there is no lift; or when a child has no peer group with whom to undertake a particular activity.. When it comes to some types of specialist provision, a Special Educational Needs (SEN) unit or school may be more appropriate. "Inclusion has to be meaningful; its not just about being there," says Carol Payne, Head of Special Needs, Disability and Psychology at Wandsworth Council. "We dont want children to feel isolated." A small proportion of children (just over 2% of the child ...

Last week we tried to demystify some of the principles of self-settled special needs trusts, and to distinguish them from third-party trusts. This week we continue that education effort, focusing on the rules governing third-party trusts.. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of special needs trusts. Those set up to handle money owned by the beneficiary (like a personal injury settlement, for instance) are usually called "self-settled" special needs trusts. Those set up by someone other than the beneficiary, to handle money not belonging to the beneficiary, are usually called "third-party" special needs trusts. It is the latter kind of trust we want to explain here.. What kind of property can go in to a third-party special needs trust?. Any property someone wants to leave or give to a person with a disability can (and usually should) be placed in a third-party special needs trust.

It was only in one of these that the language of special needs was reflected upon and critized. It was Len Barton who in an article suggested that an inclusive school needs a new language. The special educational language is according to Barton impregnated with meanings that are not really compatible with the idea of inclusive education. This is not a new idea which made it even more surprising to find out that so many influential papers were silent on this issue.. The language of special needs The whole concept of special needs is built upon the distinction between an education for children with special needs, i.e. special education, and an education for other pupils. I would like to suggest that the whole language of special needs rests on similar distinctions. Educator goes through special educational training in order to teach the special children and, at least ...
Periodontal Disease Treatment of a Physically Challenged Population - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Many physically handicapped patients at the dental department, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute(TRI) have considerable gingival inflammation and breath odour because of the inability to effectively handle a toothbrush. These patients have considerable periodontal disease. There is a concern that these pathogens may have a detrimental effect on wound healing in other areas of the body.. Hypothesis: Patients attending the dental department at TRI that are treated with the antibiotic-antifungal rinse containing metronidazole and nystatin will show substantial decrease in periodontal disease as measured by bleeding points and pocket depth when compared to the group that continues to use their regular oral hygiene methods (control group). ...

The importance of positive reinforcement for children with special needs | Stanfield
Advocate honesty: When a child feels comfortable to openly admit that they are struggling with a task, they are more likely to request support before they feel angered and frustrated at their inability to independently complete the task. This will give us a natural and genuine opportunity to appreciate their efforts to this point and highlight their strengths. After this injection of positive reinforcement, we can continue to encourage and motivate the individuals at an appropriate level. Encourage effort. Its important to be reminded that every individual in this world struggles with something, and often struggle with lots of things! By reminding children with special needs that they are not necessarily struggling as a result of their disability, but rather because it is part of the learning process, we begin to normalize their difficulties. This can be a particularly supportive strategy to use to encourage individuals who are discouraged by their slower rate of learning. By breaking tasks ...

Special Needs Resource Foundation of San Diego | Sweet Sleep for Special Babies
Infants with special needs may have hypotonia, or low muscle tone, which is linked to Down Syndrome, prematurity and some neurological conditions. These babies seem "floppy" and take longer to reach motor-skills milestones like holding the head up, rolling over and sitting. They often respond well to swaddling, which can improve muscle tone by giving their small limbs something to push against. Bonus: Swaddling is also known to promote calmer, more restful sleep.. Be sure your childs swaddle doesnt extend above the shoulders-bunched-up fabric could restrict breathing-and check with your pediatrician about swaddling around the hips. Tight swaddling on a babys lower half may be linked to hip dysplasia, a condition in which the hip joints dont develop properly. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute recommends HALO and Just Born brand swaddles, which gently hug a baby arms and torso while leaving hips in the proper position for optimal development..

Comfort in the Midst of Chaos: SPECIAL NEEDS ETIQUETTE 101: What're YOU Looking At?
One situation that always makes me laugh when I remember it (although it was certainly unnerving to the family at the time), was when our friends son with CP was at a private school picnic, and another little boy just wouldnt stop staring. The dad, a huge ex-football player looked right at the staring kid and said, "Can I help you, Johnny? You see something interesting, Johnny? What do you need, Johnny?" The poor kid finally broke his stare and shrunk away in complete intimidation. The special needs parents were pretty upset too. In retrospect, the dad couldnt believe he had, with all his imposing physique, asserted himself like that. While we chuckle now, I wouldnt exactly recommend coming on that strong with others. Rather, when dealing with curious people, if you have the strength, ask them if there are any questions you might answer for them. A response that might work could be something like, "I cant help but notice that you are looking at my son/daughter. He/she is a pretty remarkable ...

Sylhet school launches online helpline for children with special needs
The summer break is a magical world of fascinating experiences for children, who enjoy the long days of vacation and fun, of frolic and adventure. At the same time, it can be quite a headache for parents, who are kept busy figuring out how to keep the children occupied and who will supervise them when the adults go to work and take care of other occupations.. This "headache" is twice as daunting when we are speaking of children with special needs and impairments, who need extra attention and even closer supervision. Their world is cramped into the limited scope of their families and they get lost in the lack of routine, as dependent children who constantly need a loving look, a caress, and help in mobility. Their inability to adapt to to an unstructured day leads to chaos and misery both on the part of other family members and the child himself. The house is continually upside-down. Siblings cannot invite a friend over for a game or even read more than a page of a book without a sudden avalanche ...

Many of the students with special needs have one or many sensory deficits. They have difficulty integrating the information from their eyes, ears, hands, and body. They may not move easily and appear clumsy. Most learning problems are the result of poor sensory integration of all these systems. Each child demonstrates a different set of symptoms. Their nervous system is working an irregular way and they tend to have disorganized response to their environment. We have integrated yoga into the sessions of children with various diagnoses with positive results. Anyone can maximize his or her potential from consistent practice of yoga and these children are no exception. Yoga calms the physical body and once that occurs, the mind can quiet. Gradually, a child becomes more organized and focused. Yoga enhances flexibility has a positive effect on gross, fine, visual motor conditions. It also promotes strength and self-esteem and encourages a gentle spirit ...
