The Purpose of this Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide education and bring about higher awareness about Down syndrome. It is to share that life with Down syndrome (DS) is not scary, horrible, or to be feared.

My experience comes from raising my daughter, Nebraska Larae (Braska), born November 2006 with Down syndrome.
The posts on this blog are related in some way to life with DS or disability, and they are reposted here from my other family blogs. There are links to those blogs in the margin on the right side of this blog if you would like to visit them directly.

Thank you for coming by.

Hey DS Parents, Dental question

Ok, if you don't have a kid with DS, you can put your 2 cents in too... I'm all about inclusion. (Ha...see that's a little IEP joke right there for ya.)

When did you take your kiddo for their first dental check?

If you haven't yet, were you given any info from anyone about when you should take him/her?

What was the reasoning for that timing?

How does tooth-brushing go at your house? Easy? A fight? Every day?

Anyone need to do sedation for dentistry?

I'm pondering how this is going to work for Braska, as she is so NOT into people messing with her mouth or putting anything in it.
