Celebrating an additional Independence Day
July 26th is Independence Day For Americans With Disabilities. On this day back in 1991, President George W. Bush signed into law the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) and so began the journey toward inclusion. As we know, that journey now includes equal access to both physical and digital spaces like websites and apps. The move is on to ensure people with disabilities can also interact with digital content and functionality and we applaud the companies who are leading the nation by providing accessibility for those who have disabilities. 

What can you do to support inclusion?

Stress and Children

As providers and caretakers, adults tend to view the world of children as happy and carefree. After all, kids don't have jobs to keep or bills to pay, so what could they possibly have to worry about?
Plenty! Even very young children have worries and feel stress to some degree.

Stress can be just as harmful for children as adults. Since preschoolers don't articulate their emotions well, spotting anxiety in kids and how stress appears is the first step to eliminating it.
