In this inspiring memoir, David Egan tells his own story, giving us a window into a life spent pushing boundaries. With a family undaunted by his diagnosis of Down syndrome, Egan learned early to speak up for himself. He has since become a powerful advocate for all people with disabilities. His optimistic perspective rejected the limits of stereotypes and the expectations of others. He shares how the support of loving family and friends led him to overcome challenges and blaze new trails. It started with swimming and baseball, when he earned places on his neighborhood teams, competing fiercely and as a fully accepted teammate. He writes firsthand of the empowering feeling of being fully included in elementary school and at work as an adult. Egan has earned positions at prestigious companies and a distinguished fellowship on Capitol Hill. He sits on the boards of influential advocacy organizations. He has addressed audiences worldwide and has played a powerful global advocacy role with Special Olympics. He allowed himself to dream big, and he encourages everyone to do the same. His lesson to all of us is to focus on our shared humanity despite our differences--and our diagnoses. This hopeful memoir will encourage everyone to make the most of their lives.

The Golden Age of Childhood: The Elementary Sch...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The elementary school years are the Golden Age of Childhood because they are a time of slow, even, physical growth and great leaps forward intellectually and socially. It's a time for both girls and boys to play soccer and have a best friend, to go on sleepovers and become ardent fans of a favorite baseball or football team. And it's also a time to ride bikes in the park, eat ice cream on a lazy summer afternoon, have carefree moments with nothing to do and get absorbed in a good book. What a wonderful time for parents! Children between the ages of six and eleven or twelve can take care of themselves in regard to eating, sleeping, and hygiene. For the most part they cause little trouble, listen well, and - most importantly - they like and admire their parents and want to spend time with them. Mom and Dad really are the greatest! Enjoy it, folks. Unfortunately, such admiration is short-lived, soon to be replaced by the uncomfortable but necessary distancing and disdainful scrutiny of every parental word in adolescence, which is just around the corner. Child psychiatrist, Cal Colarusso M.D. loved raising two boys and a girl through these wonderful years, has fond memories of his own childhood in a much simpler age and has had the privilege of treating scores of boys and girls over the past five decades. In this book he uses his personal experience as a parent, grandfather and therapist to share his knowledge of this age with parents in a relaxed but informative manner. After all, after months and years of sleepless nights, dirty diapers and temper tantrums, parents deserve a Golden Age too. The Golden Age of Childhood: The Elementary School Years provides parents with an in-depth understanding of what makes children of this age tick and provides suggestions on how to promote maximum growth and development. This book provides information on: The emergence of the capacity for friendships The development of morality an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken Maxon.

The Skeptical Yogi: Yogananda's Autobiography U...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I first read Yogananda’s justly famous Autobiography of a Yogi when I was just 11 years old. In those days (circa 1967), I was a great fan of baseball, particularly the Dodgers, and when I first spotted the book at my local North Hollywood Public library, I thought it must be about Yogi Berra, the famous catcher for the New York Yankees, so I naturally picked it up for a closer reading. However, after I got home I soon realized my mistake. It was rather about an Indian mystic who had come to America in 1920 to share his views on spirituality and what he had learned from his associations with various saints and sages, particularly his own guru Sri Yukteswar of Serampore.I devoured the book in slow chunks and loved every chapter of it since it opened up a hitherto unknown world to me. Since I was raised Roman Catholic and attended St. Charles elementary school, we were not taught about other religions. Learning about Hinduism and its various practices was like opening a window on a windy Santa Ana day in December. It was both refreshing and invigorating. Yogananda’s tome transported me to another time and place and forever changed my philosophical outlook on all things religious.I guesstimate that I have reread Autobiography of a Yogi over 50 or so times, such was my fondness for its enchanting and beguiling stories of meeting the perfume yogi, the saint with two bodies, and the tiger tamer, and more. The book has gone through many editions since its first printing in 1946 and today is widely available worldwide and has been translated into over 50 languages.Steve Jobs was so taken by Yogananda’s book that he made sure that everyone attending his funeral in 2011 received a copy of it in a special brown box. Job’s biographer, Walter Isaacson, recounts that the founder of Apple had the digital version of the book downloaded on his iPad and read it at least once a year.However, as much I dearly loved reading Autobiography 1.

Ups and Downs: Elementary Monologues That Explo...
21,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

This unique book of 100 monologues invites elementary school students to explore a wide range of emotions, developing empathy as well as acting skills. Divided into three sections, each part utilises a different technique to help children learn more about feelings. Part I contains 20 monologues that each have two contrasting scenarios which alter the feel of the selection (eg: You just learned your family is moving out of state. Are you excited or sad?). Part II has 30 pairs of monologues that present the same situation from different points of view (eg: You are insulted that you and your younger sister have the same bedtime. Your sister is glad that the two of you are treated equally). Part III includes 20 monologues that provide situations without identifying emotions in order to encourage discussion (eg: Your mum finally made it to one of your baseball games, but you hit a foul ball through her windscreen). All the monologues in this exciting collection are between one and two minutes long, and a comprehensive list of emotions in the appendix will help kids better clarify their own feelings and empathise with others. Most of the selections are gender neutral, with the rest divided evenly between boys and girls. Elementary-aged students will enjoy the many pieces from their own perspective and will be challenged by others from an older or younger point of view. Not just for the young actor, this book can help any child build stronger relationships with their peers, parents, siblings, and teachers.
