Intervening for the young with disabilities

By

Talk about children and youth with disabilities (CYWDs), and insights—from the positive to the negative—come rushing. It is often said that having one in the family is a blessing. In medicine the condition is at times explained as something that happens when the mother goes through her pregnancy undernourished. Superstition points to roaming spirits that had, perhaps, “pushed its luck” on the child. Indeed, opinions on the cause of the disability vary, but one thing is sure: We cannot skirt this issue on the pretext that it is a condition predestined by fate. We must recognize it, to look at it and address it with conviction.

Protect the children

The start of the year was marked by a horrendous report. In the isolated village of Ibabao in Cebu a child pornography ring was operating, with parents roping their own children into the sordid business. Inside their homes, parents were directing their children—and even their neighbors’—in sex acts recorded by webcam for sale on the Internet to foreign pedophiles. To keep the ring constantly running, the adults locked the children in. But a series of raids disrupted the operation; a number of adults were arrested and the children were rescued, aged 3, 9 and 11.
