26th Meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability

The logo of the annual meeting 2014 is a part of a drawing of a Viennese artist who lives in a facility for autistic people. The logo is mostly conceived enjoyable. Although it seems that every horse has the same shape and looks in the same direction. However, in the original picture with its 91 horses, there are not two of them looking alike. From a clinical point of view we tend to prioritize the signs of pathology as we are trained to search for them. However, looking at 'the other side' of the picture is to observe it from an artistic point of view - one might be impressed by the differences within the similarities. Therefore the theme of the meeting shall remind us that each thing, every action, every kind of observable behaviour can also be seen from another perspective - it has an 'other side'.

Emergency Preparedness-What Does That Mean For People With I/DD, Their Families, And Their Communities?

Emergency preparedness is an essential part of living for any individual or family. For those with intellectual disabilities, their families, or those providing support, however, emergency preparedness may require more specific plans of support. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has a number of resources to prepare and support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities before, during, and after natural disasters. Of key importance is the implementation of self-determination practices in this area. One example of this implementation is the ?Feeling Safe, Being Safe? training curriculum through which individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have become advocates and trainers in emergency preparedness.
