Mainstream Teachers Train to Educate Autistic Children

Published by under Autism

Childhood is a time of exploration that for some children and parents proves especially onerous. That’s most poignantly the case in families where a child has been diagnosed with Autism. The disorder renders especially difficult a child’s ability to communicate and to interact socially, which in turn brings forth significant social and educational challenges.

Before recent federal regulations were set in place, kids with Autism were taught in classrooms set apart from those designated for their non-Autistic peers. The new laws require that Autistic students be taught in regular classrooms as part of a school’s general population. It’s hoped that by being in regular classrooms children with the disorder will receive an education that’s equal to that obtained by their non-Autistic peers. Continue Reading »

How to Keep Your Contact Lenses Safe and Clean

Published by under Health

Summary: Protecting your contact lenses should always be a priority. Poor cleaning practices could leave you with a potential infection.

When you first purchase contact lenses, your optometrist should emphasize good hygiene practices and cleaning techniques. This involves using a multitude of solutions and washing your hands before every use. Because these lenses are considered medical devices and sit flush in your eye, you should always treat them with care and follow your eye doctor’s instructions.

Never Use Tap Water to Clean Your Contacts

Tap water should never be substituted for contact cleaning solution. Because tap water contains bacteria and particles that could potentially cause an infection, you should only clean your contacts with a recommended solution that is designed specifically for contact lenses.

Because these contact solutions are precision engineered for your contact lenses, like the Dailies Total1 for example, you should always be wary of what you’re using so you can maximize the shelf life of your contacts and get maximum comfort whenever you use it.

Regularly Clean Your Contact Lens Case

And, if you’re leaving them in their case overnight, they’re swimming around in all the bacteria buildup, increasing the changes that you’ll contract something.

If you’re unsure about your daily routine, it’s important to contact your optometrist to discuss what you need to do to keep your eyes safe from harm. Remember, different contact lens types that you purchase from Lens.com for example, require different cleaning techniques and maintenance. Certain solutions that you would normally use on your hard lenses should not be used on your soft lenses.

Top Common Cosmetic Surgery Complications

Published by under Health

Article by Dr. Jan Zemplenyi

Some medical operations are strongly suggested by doctors because they feel the surgeries could help your health and increase your quality of life. If you decide not to have the operations, your conditions may worsen and ultimately become life-threatening.

There are other surgeries, however, that are not as crucial and are mainly done for aesthetic purposes. Cosmetic surgeries can be performed on a number of body parts and can involve all sorts of alterations. Changing the nose or shape of your nose, cheeks, and breasts are quite common. Nowadays, cosmetic surgeries are quite safe but that does not mean that you should not be aware of the various complications that could come. No surgery is 100% safe but some are close. Below are some of the most common cosmetic surgery complications.


Perhaps one of the most common complications from any type of surgery is scarring. Since surgeons will need to cut into the skin to make alterations, whether that be adding, removing, or reshaping, there is a possibility that patients could be left with marks where incisions were made. Since cosmetic surgeries usually performed to enhance one’s appearance, these unwanted marks may cause discomfort. Talk to your surgeon to learn about how he or she will prevent scarring and what steps can be taken to reduce the appearance of them if they were to show.


Surgeons usually take certain steps to make sure their patients heal properly after a surgery. That being said, there is still a possibility that you can get infected after following the postoperative steps. Some infections can be internal and tough to spot, which is why you should schedule checkups to pay close attention to how your body is recovering.
