Softening [electronic resource (video)] : Loving a Child with Special Needs / by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584; O'Brien, Kelly.;

(2:07) -- Expanding Family (2:56) -- Things That Teddy Likes (3:18) -- Pictures of Teddy (4:25) -- Credits: Softening: Loving a Child with Special Needs (2:22)I'm not really one of those parents of a kid with special needs who thinks it's a gift from God or a blessing in disguise, says filmmaker Kelly O'Brien. O'Brien speaks honestly about her struggle to cope for the first five years following the birth of Teddy, born with extensive brain damage resulting from an in-utero viral infection. The rewards as well as the challenges of caring for him are evident in Softening, a lyrical cinematic diary O'Brien created to celebrate her son's inherent beauty and the joy he brings to his family's life. His big sister's vast affection and his father's poignant observation that all Teddy's physical limitations fall away when he dreams help to dispel the fear and discomfort often surrounding the topic of disability. In leaving out the grittier details of Teddy's daily regimen to focus on the moments of intimacy and play, the film also documents O'Brien's gradual process of opening up emotionally - her softening - about her son's difficult diagnosis.11 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Presence of Mind in Neurophysiological Processes [electronic resource]. by Desmarais, Jane.; Goldie, Lawrence.;

It is the culmination of the author's psychiatric and psychoanalytic work with patients over fifty years, and is based on the simple premise that physiological measurements cannot describe the mind and the mind cannot describe physiological processes. In order for us to have a significant knowledge of the object the author argues that we need both, and that medical specialists and healt

Injecting fear [electronic resource (video)] : does the MMR shot cause autism? / by BBC Worldwide Ltd.(SAGE)1970872; Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584;

But some doctors, along with many parents of autistic children, remain convinced of a connection. This program sifts through both sides of the issue, fully explaining both the link theory and the epidemiological research that vindicates the MMR. Interviews with Dr. Andrew Wakefield-the gastroenterologist who first asserted that the vaccine can cause intestinal infections and lead to brain damage-accompany moving testimony from families affected by autism, as well as extensive commentary from skeptical physicians.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

The astonishing talents of Stephen Wiltshire, one of three idiots savants featured in The Foolish Wise Ones, brought him fame and fortune. Since the age of six, Stephen could draw buildings in perspective. By the age of 12, he was acclaimed as probably the best child artist in Britain. Stephen's brilliant drawings have been published around the world, and he has become far more outgoing in his interpersonal relationships. The program follows him to Venice and Leningrad in an attempt to discover why he has changed so dramatically.6 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
