April is National Autism Awareness Month

1 in every 88 children is diagnosed with autism. Autism is treatable, but children do not outgrow it. Here are some signs to look for in your child:

§  Little to no eye contact

§  Delay or lack of spoken language

§  Little interest in relationships with peers

§  Fixation on parts of objects

                              §  Repetitive use of language and/or motor skill

                           For more information go to: www.autism-society.org/about-us/national-autism-awareness-month

                                       April 21 – 28 is National Infant Immunization Week (Last Week in April)

By immunizing your child you can prevent diseases that may affect their development.  Vaccines are the most successful and cost effective in preventing disease.  Giving infants vaccines by the age of 2 can prevent 14 childhood diseases.  

For more information go to: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/events/niiw/index.html

April 24th is World Meningitis Day

The best way to prevent Meningitis is by getting the meningitis vaccine.  Meningitis can cause hearing loss and brain damage or even a learning disability.  Bacterial Meningitis can be spread by direct contact with secretions from the nose or throat which contain the bacteria.  It is believed that 10-20% of people are carrying the bacteria at any given time.  Viral Meningitis is most often spread through fecal contamination or secretions from the nose or throat.  Fungal Meningitis is spread by inhaling fungal spores from the environment.
