This month, Dr. Kelly Eagen and Dr. Alana Barbato go into depth on topics you'll be interested in. In health news, they discuss the finding that sleep disorders such as sleep apnea early in childhood are associated with learning difficulties in school. One of our main topics is Autism - Dr. Eagen discusses resources for parents and the importance of early therapy. We also discuss pertussis, or whooping cough, which has had some recent outbreaks. In parenting tips, we discuss how to get those kids eating vegetables and fruits. Finally, we answer last month's medical trivia, which was: "When was the first successful bone marrow transplant?"
