How to Choose Toys for Autistic Children

Engaging autistic children in play can be a lot more challenging than with non-autistic children. In addition, play needs to reflect both enjoyment for the child, and assist development of specific personality traits and coping mechanisms.

As a American, I do not agree with you President Obama

My notes are in red.
phony war in Iraq or the torture memos that justified waterboarding. It's millions of missing emails and the constant use of executive privilege and signing statements. All of the men and women we sent to Iraq who died... They are not worth it? Their lives lost mean nothing to you?  You can't be very American if you are not willing to fight for our own troops.  4,000+ lost in war, ...remember that. 
secretive meetings with Enron and other energy executives and the wholesale firing of federal prosecutors. It's trying to get the president's personal attorney seated on the Supreme Court and that despicable Alberto Gonzales sitting in front of congressional investigators whining, "I don't remember, I don't know, I...etc."  Many are quick to put others away for such acts.  Who got paid off? Someone did, because little was done, and the hearings were a joke. The hearings were there to please the public? Well, guess again.   
domestic eavesdropping in violation of the FISA Court, the rendition prisons, and the lying. It's looking the other way while the City of New Orleans drowned and its people were left to fend for themselves. This was very un-American. So what was this "really" about?
It's the violations of the Geneva Conventions, the soiling of our international reputation and the shredding of the U.S. Constitution. It's the handing over of $700 billion to the Wall Street fat cats last fall, no questions asked. Even though Bush is no longer in office, this still hurts the reputation of Americans everywhere. As for the missing money, I just think it was Bush's last act of kindness he did for his friends. It had nothing to do about the economy.  I also don't believe Bush loved America. What president does away with our Constitution? 
no-bid contracts to firms like Halliburton and Blackwater and the shoddy construction and lack of oversight of reconstruction in Iraq that cost American taxpayers untold billions. Plus the many that lost their lives due too the shoddy construction. They deserve justice.  What a shame, and a terrible loss. 
We have no clue to what all the Bush Administration did to our Country.  A lot was done to America behind closed doors.  This is even more reason as to why the Bush Administration should be investigated.   
President Obama...  Please open your eyes, who ever is giving you advice, just may have a reason for not wanting that investigation. 
You may have many good apples around you, but you have many rotten ones as well. Plus without this investigation you open the door for another President after you to try to do the same as Bush.

In response that Google is removing user content

First off it doesn't matter if the service is free, it's the ethics behind it.  It's your content, you made it.  All it took was a few strokes of the keyboard for your content to disappear, and no reason given behind it except just to say that the RIAA owns it.  
second I believe the law here need to be changed.  If you file a infringement against someone then you should have to say what is "exactly infringing.  With the way the law is set up now.  It can be abused very easy.  All they have to say (or lawyers say)  as just in this case and many more like it is "hey remove it it is violating my music copyright".  Then up steps a content provider like Google that has to remove the source or else they can get sued too.  This is not fair to the public when you leave the public in the dark about what the RIAA is yelling foul over, or anyone else that decides they don't "like your content".    Be open about what's going on and if you decide that certain content is infringing, then tell the blogger or website owner exactly what is infringing.
This is the most biggest thing I have against the copyright laws.  Anyone can cry foul, and service providers quiver and jump to remove the so called content.  I have heard of cases of other people having to remove content, or they had content removed by their provider,  and all they was told is "you were violating a copyright, and I don't have to tell you what content".  "You just need to know what page it is on."  So the owner of the content has to remove the whole page of content because they have no idea what exactly on that page is infringing. In most cases it is just one file, or one URL causing the problem.
Come on people this is the most stupid of laws, and excuses.  This needs to be changed.  Give the public a break here the only ones that are benefiting from this law are the ones that decide they want to infringe upon you because they don't like your content.  Who knows they may be after a monetary gain too.  You could be a rival that they need too squash. What ever the case there is not enough responsible disclosure.  If you have proof, then I want to see it.  Not asking for too much right?

Limbaugh: I hope Obama 'fails'

Limbaugh: I hope Obama 'fails'
Rush Limbaugh says he hopes President Barack Obama fails. CNN's Rick Sanchez takes a closer look.
What in the hell is wrong with this man? If Obama fails then America fails, the people fail, and it does not make for a pretty picture. Lets not forget about what this will do to the world.

President Barack Obama 2009 Inauguration and Address

Very well spoken, and I am sure President Obama raised a few eyebrows. President Obama has his work cut out for him. I am sure he will meet obstacles that will do their best to fight him. His speech was on target for what America has in store for the next four years. He talked too ALL of the people, and acknowledged the many cultures within our borders. Well worth the watch.
