Our focus on neuromuscular conditions continues with Huntington's, a truly devastating disease that could be affecting as many as 180,000 people in America.

Feeling trapped in your house can make anyone go a little stir crazy, but avoid the urge to switch on the television to pass the time. If the cold weather and lack of sun saps your energy and has you climbing up the walls, take a deep breath and think about all of the resources at your fingertips. Create learning opportunities for your children with simple household items and motivate them to stay active. Pretty soon you will realize that you have always had everything you needed right there in your cabin.
Do you remember last holiday season? A bit of a blur, hmm? You remember fighting the crowds on Black Friday, your in-laws extending their trip for an extra three days (insert picture of you pulling your hair out), the gifts and all of the cleaning up after the New Year. But, do you remember Kevin's book report? The one he put off until the night before he returned to school from holiday break?! He had three weeks to finish that book report, but something just kept getting in the way. This season, help your children stay on task and focused on a successful 2014. Just because children are out of school doesn't mean they should take a vacation from learning. Here are a few tips to turn any situation into an educational opportunity, or simply add some excitement to regular schoolwork.

It’s a weekday afternoon at the Camarillo Boys & Girls Club and about a dozen children ages 5 to 8 enter the computer room. Each puts on headphones, straps a round plastic button to one hand and starts clapping.
Most of these children are struggling in school, and some have learning disabilities such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder.
They are participating in a three- to four-week pilot program called Hardy Brain Camp, a unique form of therapy designed to help the young pupils focus and succeed in school.
