Sibling Support Groups Sessions to Assist Siblings of Children With Special Needs

Encino, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2014

Siblings of children with special needs face enormous challenges in their daily lives. Perceived lack of attention by parents, feelings of sadness and isolation, schoolmates who at best cant relate to them and at worst tease or mock their circumstances, and additional responsibilities of their sibling, are just some of their possible day to day challenges. There is a very urgent need to objectively address these challenges and answer the numerous questions in the minds of these children. Ultimately, all concerned individuals have a huge responsibility in ensuring that such children understand their role in the lives of their siblings and can be compassionate partners to them. It is equally important to help these children know how to lead happy and productive lives of their own.

Sibling Supports Groups are fun filled and informative sessions where children learn to handle issues pertaining to their unique circumstances. Working with Autism, Inc. has teamed up with We Rock The Spectrum, Santa Clarita to provide an enjoyable and engaging environment for the sessions. The initial part of the sessions will be devoted to helping children explore thoughts and feelings about their everyday challenges in an open and supportive environment and through fun, collaborative group activities. The latter part of the session will allow time for children to use the fun sensory based gym equipment, such as zip lines, tunnels, and trampolines, just to name a few.

"There has been a clear need for Siblings Support Groups for a long time and it is exciting to be able to provide it in a format and setting that truly makes it a fun experience for the kids," explained Dr. Hilya Delband, Director of Clinical Development and Marketing at Working With Autism. "We know they will be enthusiastic about coming back each week to see what we have in store for them."

Providing a fun experience, a place to interact with peers, and facilitation of sharing thoughts and feelings, all aim to instill a sense of understanding, responsibility and positivity in siblings and enable them to be more informed about their own lives in relation to their special needs siblings.

The duration of each session will be 1 hour 15 minutes. Starting from June 16, 2014, the meetings will be held for 6 weeks. The cost for the 6 week group session, including the use of the facilities at We Rock The Spectrum, is $ 150.00.

Venue: We Rock The Spectrum Santa Clarita, 26063 Bouquet Canyon Road.

Insception Lifebank Cord Blood Program Launches Cord Tissue Banking

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) June 04, 2014

Insception Lifebank, Canada's largest cord blood program, now offers expecting parents the option to bank a section of the actual umbilical cord tissue, in addition to banking cord blood.

"With exciting developments in stem cell research, scientists continue to identify different types and sources of stem cells that offer therapeutic promise," said Richard Lockie, President and CEO of Insception Lifebank. "The umbilical cord tissue is a rich source of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), which are different from the stem cells obtained in cord blood collection."

For the past 17 years, Insception Lifebank has focused on umbilical cord blood stem cells, which are used today in the treatment of over 80 life-threatening diseases, and are being investigated in clinical trials

involving Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Pediatric Brain Injury. In contrast, "MSCs can inhibit inflammation, suppress an immune response, aid in tissue repair, and differentiate into structural tissue including bone and cartilage," explains Dr. Ian Rogers of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute. Because of their versatility, MSCs are being investigated to treat a variety of therapeutic areas including Heart Failure, Stroke, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and many more.

The application of cord tissue MSCs is in the early stage of clinical development, although scientists are optimistic that new cutting edge therapies will result from cord tissue research.

About Insception Lifebank

Founded in 1996, Insception Lifebank is Canada's first, largest and most experienced cord blood program, with more releases than all Canadian cord blood banks combined. With a fierce passion for quality, and the highest level of voluntary accreditation (AABB and FACT), Insception Lifebank is the #1 Choice of Canadian parents with over 60,000 cord blood units stored. In partnership with leading Canadian medical facilities such as Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences, and Scarborough Hospital, Insception Lifebank continues to provide every Canadian family with security, state-of- the-art processing and storage, financial stability and long term professional governance.

UC Davis Study Confirms Mitochondrial Deficits in Children with Autism

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PRWEB) May 08, 2014

Children with autism experience deficits in a type of immune cell that protects the body from infection. Called granulocytes, the cells exhibit one-third the capacity to fight infection and protect the body from invasion compared with the same cells in children who are developing normally.

The cells, which circulate in the bloodstream, are less able to deliver crucial infection-fighting oxidative responses to combat invading pathogens because of dysfunction in their tiny energy-generating organelles, the mitochondria.

The study is published online in the journal Pediatrics.

Granulocytes fight cellular invaders like bacteria and viruses by producing highly reactive oxidants, toxic chemicals that kill microorganisms. Our findings show that in children with severe autism the level of that response was both lower and slower," said Eleonora Napoli, lead study author and project scientist in the Department of Molecular Biosciences in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. "The granulocytes generated less highly reactive oxidants and took longer to produce them."

The researchers also found that the mitochondria in the granulocytes of children with autism consumed far less oxygen than those of the typically developing children another sign of decreased mitochondrial function.

Mitochondria are the main intracellular source of oxygen free radicals, which are very reactive and can harm cellular structures and DNA. Cells can repair typical levels of oxidative damage. However, in the children with autism the cells produced more free radicals and were less able to repair the damage, and as a result experienced more oxidative stress. The free radical levels in the blood cells of children with autism were 1

Two Autism Moms Raise Awareness on April 23, Demand Coverage for Autism Now

Los Angeles (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

Shannon Penrod and Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson, hosts of Lets Talk Autism with Shannon & Nancy, a segment on Autism Live, are teaming up with the autism community on April 23, 2014 to spearhead the Coverage for Autism Now or CAN campaign. Organizations such as Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), ACT Today!, Special Needs Network, Love My Provider and My Thiero Boys are participating to help raise awareness of the need to provide coverage to the many families affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The two moms are asking everyone to stand in solidarity and join the movement by writing CAN somewhere visible on their body or clothing, take a picture and post it on Autism Lives Facebook at

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) one in every 68 children in the United States is diagnosed with ASD, with one in 42 boys and one in 189 girls diagnosed. This makes it more prevalent than juvenile diabetes, pediatric cancer and pediatric AIDs combined. California has an autism mandate and offers coverage for autism treatment through its state exchange.

While insurance reform has helped many, we are all painfully aware of the families who have lost insurance coverage, remain uninsured, or have no means of paying for expensive co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles, said Shannon Penrod, host of Autism Live.

Californias Senator Steinberg was clear about the state of insurance reform for the coverage of autism treatment when he recently said, We aint done yet!, said Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson, executive director of ACT Today!. We are asking everyone to demand every health plan in every state provide coverage for autism.

The Coverage for Autism Now segment on Lets Talk Autism with Shannon & Nancy will air on Wednesday, April 23 at 11:00 AM PDT at The segment will also be available online thereafter. Autism Live is a popular web show for the autism community that provides information and resources to families living with autism and gives viewers the opportunity to ask questions live on the show.
