This week we have a special guest: Ben Sawyer, Project Director for Games for Health. Ben talks to us in great detail about the eighth annual event taking place in Boston, Massachusetts June 12 – 14.

Hosts Andrew Eisen and E. Zachary Knight explain the fine print attached to Microsoft’s new $99 Xbox 360 and why it might be a good idea to avoid this “deal.” They also discuss the challenges that the top console makers (Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft) are facing as declining sales and the difficulties of launching a new generation of hardware weigh heavily on profits in the short term. Show length: 60 minutes. Recorded May 12, 2012.

  • I gotta say it looks like a very beautiful box, but I'll wait until the price goes below the 60 doallr mark because it's just not worth for me. I'm in no rush. It could be possible considering the box set is now available for 100 bucks and you can expect the price to go lower in the following months, not to mention Black Friday deals in a couple of months or used sets for sale online either on eBay or Amazon. This means that if you plan on getting this box set pretty cheaply eventually, you'll have to skip the 3 disc set of So to avoid repetition and further cash-out for the same material.

  • Dear Dr. John Cannell,Our family ospoetath Dr. Beals-Becker has been treating my son with autism since he was about 2 & he is now 9. He has shown GREAT strides .He keeps up with grade level & for the most part does great. But, he still does have HUGE melt downs once he gets home (very occasional) a few melt downs have landed us in the ER due to him screaming himself into having chest pains. He takes 10,000 IU of vitamin D per day every morning He started at 1,000, then moved to 2,000 & then 5,000 & then just upped to 10,000.(over the 7 years of treatment) So, the question is Dr. Beals-Becker wanted me to contact you & ask you Dr. Cannell if this amount is enough or if we should up it again .Or should we split it into 2 5,000 doses. He does have some difficulty sleeping so we weren't sure about a later dose of vitamin D.THANK YOU for your time.Stacy Forsyth http://tfaymtjazy.com [url=http://xjsdanrptoj.com]xjsdanrptoj[/url] [link=http://jhayluxtwnx.com]jhayluxtwnx[/link]

  • My five year old son, Gabriel, has Down syndrome. When Gabe was two years old, he could use ASL to read two books, one of which was "Brown Bear, Brown Bear". When rocknig Gabe to sleep each night, my husband or I would recite Brown Bear. :)When Gabriel was about three and half years old, he began preschool. Each month, there was "Show 'n Tell", and every time he would pick a book to bring. At this time in our lives, my husband and I worried about his verbal capability. If he answered, it was one word. He rarely volunteered to speak. Towards the end of his preschool year, he actually read out loud, "Panda Bear, Panda Bear".I think his teacher and EA were about to fall over with surprise. ;)Gabriel is now nearing five and half, and he reads at a Grade One level. He will begin Senior Kindergarten next Tuesday. In fact, we have an appointment shortly to meet his new teacher. I'm always wary of these meetings because often our most difficult job as Gabriel's parents is to ensure that he is seen as a child with potential first and always.Your beautiful books will always stay with us to remind our family of our son's achievements. My son is now on the road to literacy, and it is authors/artists such as yourself that make this journey WONDERFUL!

  • I think that yes, it's fair. As long as you have the support ssyetm (emotional, social, financial) in place so that you will be able to care for both children, and provide for both of their needs which may be very different. As long as one of the kids is not neglected due to the needs of the other child, I think it could be a pretty fantastic experience for everyone involved I am an autistic and adopted only child parenting an autistic only child and I think that the one thing missing from our family is another child. If I were to adopt, I'd lean toward adopting a child with autism, as I can't imagine raising a non-autistic child or attempting to balance raising one of each (for lack of a better term). I wish we had the option to add another child to our family, but I feel like I'm strapped already (I have rheumatoid/autoimmune arthritis and spine damage). Hope this helps Let us know what you decide! http://yuglho.com [url=http://aekkwybygh.com]aekkwybygh[/url] [link=http://pmkkef.com]pmkkef[/link]

  • About person first lugnaage, I'd just like to mention that not all disabled people find it respectful. I'm autistic, and if you call me a person with autism, I'll correct you. Autism isn't something I have, it's a part of who I am. You wouldn't call me a person with female gender', but I feel autism matters more to my identity than my gender does. I also find that often people who use person first lugnaage see only the person or the disability, when I want them to see both.

  • David M / December 2, 2007I think it helps to have both. So many times I have heard that an electronic gizmo is going to rpaelce this or that but in reality all the new gizmo does is supplement and not rpaelce something.Reply
