Support for those with a family member on the autistic spectrum. Asperger syndrome, which affects communication and social interaction, is a neurological disorder which is believed to affect more than 200,000 people in the UK. Unlike others on the autistic spectrum, those with Asperger syndrome often want to communicate, and to share their lives, but don´t know how. This audiobook looks at how families with an ´´Aspie´´ can help them be accepted for what they are, to lead full lives and to make the most of their unique gifts. It explains the common signs of Asperger syndrome in babies and young children, and gives advice to parents on how to overcome any difficulties at school that an older child might face. Advice is also given on the vulnerable teenage years and how to promote relationships with others. This audiobook also looks at the historical background to this disorder, and at great thinkers with Asperger type characteristics, including Einstein. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Drew Campbell.

The Daughter-in-Law Syndrome delves into the complicated relationship that is causing much friction between Edna Deane and her daughter-in-law Arla. In addition it focuses on the sometimes tumultuous partnership between Arla and her husband Ric. Arla Deane sometimes likens her marriage to undergoing daily psychological warfare. Husband Ric will never voice an opinion, and puts his mother Edna up high on a pedestal. Arla is sick of always feeling that she comes in at only second best to her mother-in-law, who much to Arla´s fury is never told anything by Ric or his sisters that she would not want to hear. This novel explores the husband/wife, mother/son, and mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationships. After 28 years of marriage, Arla, the daughter-in-law, is at the end of her tether and persuades a reluctant Ric to accompany her for marriage guidance. As they look back over their lives with counselor Toni Beecher, Arla slowly comes to realize her own failings, and eventually discovers the long-hidden reason why Ric will never utter a cross word to his mother. Also adding to Arla´s stress is the fact that her son Stuart will soon be marrying Ria, a girl whom Arla feels is just looking for a free ride. Arla is convinced that Ria will be no asset to Stuart at all; her new daughter-in-law just wants to be a mother and has no intention of ever working again once the babies start to arrive. After visiting Stuart and Ria for Sunday lunch, Arla is convinced that her son is making the biggest mistake of his life.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy Anne Darling.

One in a thousand babies born in the UK every year has an extra chromosome that means they have Down syndrome. This is one boy´s story as seen through his mother´s eyes. When Jo and Cliff were told their child had Down syndrome at the 15th week of pregnancy they had little idea of what this meant. Determined to provide the best for him, Jo found Jamie could teach her as much as she could teach him. This is her story of how it feels living with a child who is ´different´. With humour, determination and sadness, Jo gives the reader an insight into a world where everyday tasks can be a struggle and simple things mean a great deal. She reveals how that extra chromosome may make Jamie different, but he is just the same as other children - given half the chance.
Are you or is anyone close to you addicted to Heroin, prescription painkillers, or any other heavy opioid or opiates, and desire to stop but is scared of the withdrawal effect? Then this book is the right book for you to do just that without having to go through such pain. According to the CDC, around 90 Americans die from opioid overdoses every day, which is more than the number of people who die from car crashes daily. It is the biggest drug epidemic in America’s history with one of the highest hit states, West Virginia as the epicenter of these opioid-related deaths. Of the 100,000 people living in Huntington and surrounding Cabell County, officials estimate that ten thousand of them are addicted to opioids, like Heroin and pain pills like Hydrocodone and Oxycodone. There have been over 100 deaths so far in Cabell County in 2018 with more than 2,000 cases of overdose reported. The level of opioid addiction in the United States is beyond anyone’s comprehension and it is affecting everyone in one way or another. The health implication is rapidly increasing and affecting even unborn children. In Huntington county alone, one out of every five babies born has been exposed to drugs before birth. They go through painful withdrawals syndromes from drugs like Heroin, oxy, fentanyl, and other opioid-based substance taken alongside Heroin by their mother during pregnancy. This is so devastating for these babies and most of them go down with neurological symptoms that aren´t helped by medicine.

Growth and nutrition during the fetal period and the first 24 months after birth are important determinants of development in early childhood. Optimal nutrition and health care of both the mother and infant during these first 1000 days of an infants life are closely linked to growth, learning potential and neurodevelopment, in turn affecting long-term outcomes.Children with low birth weight do not only include premature babies, but also those with intrauterine growth restrictions who consequently have a very high risk of developing metabolic syndrome in the future. Epidemiology, epigenetic programming, the correct nutrition strategy and monitoring of outcomes are thus looked at carefully in this book. More specifically, two important nutritional issues are dealt with in depth: The first being the prevention of low birth weight, starting with the health of adolescent girls, through the pre-pregnancy and pregnancy stages and ending with lactation. The second point of focus concerns the nutritional follow-up and feeding opportunities in relation to dietary requirements of children with low birth weight.
