Abstract
When Natalie's little brother Evan Earl is born prematurely, he's earns the nickname Evan Early. No one can say for sure when Evan will come home from the hospital. To help her with this uncertainty, Natalie's father gives her a calendar to keep track of the days - each day that Natalie colors in is one day closer to the day Evan can come home. Natalie visits Evan in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and talks to the nurses about what they do, and her Mom explains how the tubes and machines are helping Evan to breathe and eat. As the days go by and become 'rainbow weeks' on Natalie's coloring calendar, she gets lonely and a little scared; her parents spend most of their time with Evan in the NICU. She finally gets upset by their neglect. Her Mom reassures her that they haven't forgotten about her. Natalie learns that, although her brother might always need special help and lots of attention, she can be a big help and teach him family traditions.

This booklet is designed for girls who are starting their pubertal development at the early end of the normal range, about 8 years or so. The booklet describes the normal physical events of puberty, and it addresses the range of normal timing of puberty in girls. It discusses some reasons why some girls may start their puberty earlier than others, and it describes what might happen if a girl with early puberty visits a Pediatric Endocrinologist. Many practical pieces of advice and answers to commonly asked questions are also offered. The final page lists a few resource books on puberty which parents and girls may find helpful.

Abstract
A collection of materials that guide families through children's early experiences which lay the foundation for literacy. This is aimed at children will learn to read Braille. The Program has been designed for children with visual impairments, ages birth to eight years old, and the parents, families and professionals who care for them. It is equally valuable to older children with multiple disabilities, as well as to adults with visual impairments for use with sighted children.
Notes
The Perkins Panda Early Literacy Program consists of three packets, each containing a storybook, cassette and activity guide that are designed to support each other but also to stand alone:
Storybooks: Large print, uncontracted braille, and high-contrast illustrations. Belly Button is a tactile board book. Renowned musician and storyteller Odds Bodkin created the character Perkins Panda and wrote all the storybooks in collaboration with Perkins School for the Blind's Early Literacy Program Committee.
Cassettes: Songs and new stories to complement the storybooks. Written and performed by Odds Bodkin.
Activity guides: Suggested hands-on activities and songs that support each packet’s learning goals. Each has four sections: songs, daily activities, play and stories.
Families may view in SHERC if interested in purchasing their own.

Abstract
The spatio-temporal expression of interleukin (IL)-1β and transforming growth factor (TGF)- β1 in the human endometrium suggests that these two cytokines act in concert with gonadal steroids to create a uterine environment that is capable of supporting a viable pregnancy. The highly regulated series of developmental events that culminates in the terminal differentiation of the stromal cells into deciduas in preparation for implantation is mediated by alterations in the composition of the endometrial extracellular matrix (ECM). Consequently, matrix metalloproteinases have been assigned central roles in implantation and placentation.

Abstract
Written by child neurologists, this comprehensive, multi-authored volume on autism systematically discusses the classification, epidemiology and neurobiology of autism. Autism lacks a unique etiology or specific pathology, so the behaviorally defined social deficits, language impairments and repetitive behaviors that define autism are explored from a developmental neurology perspective. The evidence suggesting that autism is a disorder of neuronal development is reviewed by experts on the genetics, neuroanatomy and neuroradiology, neurochemistry, immunology, and neurophysiology of autism. Chapters provide comprehensive reviews of the common neurological problems associated with autism such as epilepsy, sleep disturbances and motor and sensory deficits. Neuropsychological assessment, medical and psychopharmacologic management, educational and behavioral interventions, and outcome are discussed within the clinical content of the practising neurologist. The research agenda needed to understand the neurology of autism is emphasized throughout the book and in the conclusion.
