HOMEWORK BLUES? Does your child have difficulty completing their homework? Do you have to stay “on top of them” to get them to complete the assignment? Does homework time often end up being frustrating for you both? Children with learning disabilities, processing problems, and ADD/ ADHD have even more difficulty completing homework. Tasks such as chores, cleaning their room and homework are mundane tasks that challenge their concentration and ability to focus. However, there are strategies to help your child get through their homework with ease and improved focus. Below is a list of recommendations for the homework blues. • Prior to homework, encourage your child to work their muscles through play for at least 15 minutes. This exercise boosts serotonin which is a calming and organizing neurotransmitter of the brain assisting the child in their ability to focus and organize their thoughts. • Encourage your child to chew gum, eat something crunchy or sour, and use a straw to drink. Oral motor activity helps them attend and improve thought processing. • Do not let your child sit more than 20 minutes at a time without a movement or exercise break. i.e. Walking around the table. • If your child has trouble sitting still, he or she may need to sit on a large ball at the table to allow him/her movement while the assignment is completed. • A behavioral “reward” chart can also be helpful motivating them to complete their work throughout the week. Common Issues of Sensory Processing Problems: • • • • • •

Easily Frustrated Issues with Clothing Intolerance of Hair Cuts Academic Issues Behavioral Problems Gross/Fine Motor Delay

• • • • •

Difficult Transitions Picky Eater Sleep Problems Poor Social Skills Language Delays

Premier Allergy & Asthma Associates Sick again ? could it be due to untreated allergieS ? With today’s economy everyone is concerned about the cost of health care. To spend your hard earned dollars or even your insurance company’s dollars on ineffective treatment certainly does not make sense. How many times have you been to your physician’s office or urgent care clinic for bronchitis, sinus infection or other illness—where you found yourself sick again just a few days after completing your medication? The illness was treated, however what caused the illness still existed—so you became sick again. Doesn’t it seem logical that rather than just treating the illness, we could determine what was causing it? Much better than that—wouldn’t it be great if we treated the cause and were able to prevent it from making you sick! To determine if a patient has allergies, our Allergist will order a skin test that is performed in our office. After testing is completed, and it is determined what (if any) allergies the patient might have, a vaccine is formulated for the patient that is specific to those allergens. The patient will then begin to receive allergy injections (immunotherapy). Once the allergies are well controlled, most patients report improvement in their energy level and overall well being. A list of some of the illnesses that have been linked to allergies is shown below: Asthma: Of any type including exercise induced, intermittent, chronic, and up to severe. This is commonly a separate complication of nasal allergy and/or sinusitis. Allergic Rhinitis: Often called Hay Fever can often exhibit symptoms of red, itchy watery eyes, sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, post nasal drip. Sinusitis: Occurs more often in allergic persons who catch a cold and the combination of infection and allergies block the sinuses often allowing an upper respiratory infection to become more complicated. Chronic Cough: May have asthma, sinusitis or other allergy related problems as the cause. Chronic or Recurrent Bronchitis: Many allergic patients have the same bronchitis the same month or months each year, identification of the cause and treating it may prevent long term lung damage. Ear Infections: Congestion and allergies can block the Eustachian tube therefore preventing the fluid from draining, resulting often times in an ear infection. Migraine: Allergists have known for years the benefit of identification and treatment of allergies. Many of our patients report reduction in severity and frequency of migraines. Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema: Hidden allergies can be a cause in most cases. Atopic dermatitis can make a child miserable and can increase the risk 3 to 4 times for development of asthma. Early evaluation and treatment may be able to prevent the asthma development while gaining control of a very itchy allergic skin disease. Hives: Medically referred to as Urticaria, may be caused by an allergic reaction. However, recent breakthroughs in Urticaria evaluation have improved the identification of causes and more specific treatment. Chronic Infections: May be the result of an immune deficiency, found with many of the problems above. Our Allergists are highly “Committed to Excellence in Patient Care” experienced in immune evaluations. Let Premier Allergy & Asthma Associates help you control your allergies so you may lead a happier, healthier life!

Don’t give Uncle Sam more of your hard-earned money than you should. Just follow these tips! Choosing the correct filing status: For example, while the term “head of household” may seem to apply to anyone who maintains a household, there is actually a strict set of guidelines for who actually qualifies to claim such a status. Taxpayers who are recently divorced, separated, or widowed need to pay especially close attention to filing status rules. And remember, sometimes it is the dependent exemptions that dictate a taxpayer’s filing status. And speaking of dependent exemptions, they can be complicated, too, especially for parents who are separated or divorced or have children in college, or for taxpayers who take care of their elderly parents. Remember, dependents may be claimed by their parents even if they worked during the year, and a dependent born anytime in 2010 is considered to have lived with the taxpayer all 12 months. Report Income Correctly: The Form 1040 has 21 lines and too many pages to count dedicated to income, so make sure every line is completed carefully and correctly because making a mistake can be costly. Stock Sales: Many taxpayers assume there is no need to report proceeds from a sale of stock if it results in a loss. Keep in mind that, for now, only gross proceeds are reported to the IRS. So show the loss on your tax return by reporting gross proceeds and cost basis, or the IRS will consider just the gross proceeds as taxable income. Cancelled Debts: If you settle a debt with a creditor, the amount of debt forgiven is taxable in the year forgiven, unless an exception applies. Taxpayers whose debt forgiveness resulted from bankruptcy or who are insolvent may be able to exclude this income. Side Jobs: In this economy, many taxpayers have taken second jobs. If your income is considered freelance or subcontractor income, it is generally reported on Schedule C. Withdrawal from IRA or Pension: Taxpayers often withdraw from their IRA or retirement plan during the year and then forget about it when tax time arrives. Most of the time, taxes are withheld, but the income and withholding must be reported on the tax return. Don’t assume that since taxes were withheld, no more reported is required. (And remember, early distributions from a retirement account are subject to an additional 10% penalty unless an exception applies.) Social Security and Disability: Taxpayers sometimes think social security and disability are not considered income. You will receive a pink notice at end of year with your earnings from social security or disability, please bring the forms when your taxes are done, and your tax preparer can determine whether it is taxable or not. See IRS Publication 525 Taxable and Non-Taxable Income for more information. Deduct expenses in the right place to get the most bang for your buck! Just like reporting income, making sure your expenses are in the right place makes a big difference. Job Expenses: First, determine whether expenses are related to your job as an employee or as a freelancer or subcontractor. Then make sure you report those expenses accurately. Expenses that apply to you as an employee should be reported on Schedule A or Form 2106. Expenses for your freelance or subcontractor job should be reported on Schedule C, since incorrectly reporting those expenses on Schedule A or Form 2106 could cost you over 15%. Health Insurance Premiums: Most taxpayers who have these benefits provided by their employer are already enjoying a pre-tax benefit. But if you are writing out the check, your premiums are probably deductible. If you are self-employed, however, be aware of special rules for 2010 that may allow you to deduct this expense without itemizing and also reduce self-employment tax on Schedule SE. See IRS Publication 535 Business Expenses So, do your homework and get it right, and you can avoid getting that dreaded IRS notice in the mail. Pay the tax you should, but not a penny more!

1 in 10 Children are at Risk from Undiagnosed Vision Problems How often should my child’s eyes be checked? An eye exam should be done at the age of 3 and before your child enters school. It is highly recommended that school-age children have a comprehensive eye exam every year. What lenses are best for my child’s vision? When purchasing eyewear, your first consideration is probably which frame should I buy. But your most important decision should be which lens and treatments should I add to my frames. Making the wrong lens choice can affect your vision, your lifestyle and even the overall life of your purchase. For children who are active in sports, glasses can be a problem. Even though glasses may protect your child’s eyes from damage, the glasses themselves can suffer damage and scratches from falls, hits and even mistreatment resulting in additional costs to repair or replace the eyewear. When it comes to the perfect combination of safety and durability, Dr. Fain and Dr. Hall recommend HOYA’s Phoenix lenses with Super HiVision EX3 anti-reflective treatment and Transitions. They are the perfect protection plan, helping to extend the life of your child’s eyewear. Phoenix lenses are lightweight, durable and provide clearer vision than standard plastic lenses. And Phoenix lenses exceed the FDA impact safety regulations for protecting your child’s vision.
