Dogs, birds and fish make great pets, but not elephants or sharks or tigers! Join John and meet the many cool creatures that share our world - inside our house, up in the air, down on the farm, deep in the ocean or in the jungle. Plus learn many animal sounds, from moos to meows. Age: 3+.

Abstract
Pregnancies derived from in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are associated with increased rates of chromosome abnormalities, congenital malformations, low birth weight, pre-term births, multiple gestations, and imprinting disorders. Assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) enable sub-fertile individuals to circumvent the natural selective pressures involved in human reproduction. The risks of ARTs may be due to the underlying causes of subfertility in these individuals or to the artificial processes used to achieve pregnancy. X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) may be at risk to perturbations in ARTs as it is thought to occur during the blastocyst stage when in vitro culturing would be taking place. We examined the XCI status in females conceived by ICSI (n=70), IVF (n=68), and naturally (NC, n=42).

Abstract
Human newborns exposed in utero to maternally administered SSRIs such as fluoxetine (FX) have an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes including poor neonatal adaptation. This comprises respiratory difficulty, jitteriness, cyanosis when feeding and persists for several days after birth. Several potential mechanisms underlying these symptoms have been proposed: 1) acute toxicity to the drugs (i.e. serotonin syndrome), 2) withdrawal syndrome due to the sudden discontinuation of maternal-fetal placental drug transfer at birth or 3) an SSRIs-elicited alteration in fetal brain development. However, the actual mechanism has not been elucidated.

Abstract
This curriculum for children from birth to 3 years with mild to severe disabilities links assessment and intervention. The book begins by describing the approach and principles of CCITSN and how to use the curriculum. The book outlines 24 teaching sequences, which are clustered into five areas: cognition, communication, social/adaptation, fine motor, and gross motor. Every sequence is introduced with a short description and special adaptations for children with motor, vision, or hearing impairments. Each curricular item or behavior within a sequence includes a materials list, a procedure and functional activities for teaching the skill, and the criteria for successful mastery. This new edition extends the age range from birth to 24 months to birth to 36 months. The curriculum can also be used with older children who fall within this age range developmentally. This volume overlaps with the second edition of The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs. This edition has more emphasis on home environment, play and emergent literacy. The appendix describing common conditions is also new to this volume.
