This Month in Disability Resources Monthly (DRM)
 
The May 2002 issue of Disability Resources Monthly is packed with information about free, inexpensive, and hard to find resources. Featured articles this month include:
 
Jobs & Careers: Recent Resources
Statistics show that the majority of people with disabilities in the U.S. are not working, and that the majority of those who are not working want to work. In this slack labor market, people with disabilities must be ever-more resourceful in choosing careers and finding employment. Here are some recent resources that are sure to help.
 
Mind Over Matter: Coping with Neurological Disorders
There are more than 600 disorders of the nervous system. They include such diverse but well-known neurological conditions as stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and autism, as well as many rare disorders. This month, DRM looks at some new and updated resources for people with three different neurological disorders and their families.
 
Just for Kids: New Print, Online, and Electronic Resources
A newsletter for children with limb loss, a nifty new website designed to teach sighted children about braille and to encourage literacy among all children, sighted and visually impaired, and a fun-filled CD-ROM that is packed with games to help children learn how to manage their diabetes.
 
The April 2002 issue of Disability Resources Monthly is packed with information about free, inexpensive, and hard to find resources. Featured articles this month include:
 
A Little Help Along the Way: Caregiving Resources
Everyone, from time to time, needs some help to get through life’s tough spots. Whether the help is for a short-term injury or illness or a long-term disease or disability, the task of providing care on a daily basis usually falls to a small circle of family and friends. Realizing that caregiving can be challenging and stressful, DRM has rounded up some recent books that should make life a little easier and better for all concerned.
 
Parkinson’s Disease: Books for All Ages
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder whose
most common symptoms are tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement, and gait and balance problems. Newsmakers like Janet Reno and Michael J. Fox have brought Parkinson’s disease out of the closet, and new treatments have reduced symptoms and delayed disability. Today, people with Parkinson’s disease can make healthy adjustments to major life changes, develop valuable coping skills, make educated treatment choices, and live independently for a much longer period of time. These new books will help people with Parkinson’s disease and their families be more informed and independent.
 
Beginning Communication: New Resources for Parents of Children Who Are Deaf
A comprehensive guide to Cued Speech, and new board books that introduce babies and toddlers to sign language.
