Intrathecal autologous bone marrow (ABM) total nucleated cells transplantation (TNCT) has been reported to be a promising treatment for cerebral palsy (CP) and autistic disorders (AD). Children with CP and AD, are expected to be patients with difficult approach when doing venipuncture or taking them to the operating room. Considering pain and the nature of the procedures, bone marrow collection (BMC) and intrathecal procedures (ITP) must be performed under sedation. For short procedures, sevoflurane can be administrated using a face mask and, propofol, a typical intravenous agent is used for the induction of general anesth...

Children with intellectual disability frequently undergo gastrostomy in order to continue enteral feeds. Indications for gastrostomy include failure to thrive, dysphagia and pulmonary aspiration, or even oral aversion. These children often have complex, comorbid conditions, such as cerebral palsy, seizures, or cardiopulmonary dysfunction. Parents are thus often challenged by the decision whether to proceed with gastrostomy, as a feeding tube will change daily care and long-term outcome for their child.

Conclusion AAC manufacturers and mainstream technology developers should work to ensure that technologies are responsive to the supports, limitations, and ideal features identified by parents. Future research should seek input from a larger group of stakeholders and use longitudinal methods to examine perceptions of AAC technologies over time.
