Abstract
This DVD, accompanied by a teacher's guide, explains abuse of inhalants and describes the effects of these substances on the body, including behavioral effects.This video exposes and discusses the dangerous behavior of students inhaling vapors from readily-available products such as model airplane glue, correction fluid, cans of whipping cream (nitrous oxide), shoe polish, and an assortment of household cleaning fluids. It reveals some startling facts about the great risk to their lives that young people take by sniffing these poisons. It emphasizes the often catastrophic results that can ensue: brain damage, paralysis, and even death.

"This unique program is for parents and caregivers of children diagnosed with a seizure disorder. The two parts -- Part 1: Diagnosis and treatments and Part 2: Life issues -- help to answer questions like, "What next?" "What are the options?" How will life be affected by this diagnosis?" Doctors, educators, therapists, psychologists, parents and children living with epilepsy all contribute on how best to manage this chronic condition. With enormous time pressure on doctors nowadays, these films prepare caregivers to take full advantage of their medical appointments. At the same time, through humour and resolve expressed by those families with long term experience, they also offer inspiration and hope"- Cover
