If a child is born with a disability or disorder the challenges can be great. Many parents are not aware of their rights, the law, or the best steps to take to make sure that their children get the best care for optimal development.
Today’s “Brains in Toyland” segment addresses steps parents should consider and resources they should know about if their child is born with a developmental challenge.
Our guests are education attorneys Eileen Libutti and Jennifer Frankola of Lewis Johs Avallone Aviles, LLP who are experts in family advocacy.
We hope this is informative.

Best, The KidsAtoZ Team.
The joy of being a Parent is one you can not put a price tag on. Some people choose to be child-free but many look forward to carrying their own babies, rolling on the floor with them, doing the small things, big ones and everything between. Then, the reality of life sets in, in a totally different way when our angels are diagnosed with having a disability.
On this week's episode we will be speaking with two wonderful women - BEBE CLEMENT and VICTORIA LAWRENCE on RAISING CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES - both sharing their personal stories.
Touching on -
How do you get a diagnosis?
What can you do to help the child?
How does it affect the family dynamic?
How do siblings handle it?
Financial/ marital pressures?
What can family and friends do to help?
How do you keep yourself sane?
Have we done what we need to do to Save Our Children,or have we done nothing to reduce Gun Violence in our communities?
Elizabeth shares what is in it for all individuals when they open up to looking at the abilities over the disabilities. It will be the first of a series as she introduces her Platform for the Todays American Woman, and continues over the next month to help us understand what is really in it for everyone when we open our minds, hearts, and attitudes to looking at individuals from the ability stand point rather than the disabiity stand point.
I have a child with a developmental disability.. where will they live without me?
Rachael has worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for approximately 7 years. Most recently, she was an Assistant Manager for The Center for Disability Services for a group home with 7 adults. Rachael is currently a full time MSW student at SUNY Albany.
When a family has a child with a developmental disability, their future is often uncertain. Individuals with developmental disabilities are often somewhat, if not completely, dependent on their caretakers. Group homes are often an option for families to consider as their child continues to grow and parents become older and less able to care for their child.
Most teachers, from elementary to college levels, are able to identify when students have difficulty learning, within the first weeks of a semester. However, employers and co-workers are not able or qualified to identify employees with Learning Disabilities unless the person is willing to ask for an accommodation. Guests will clarify how support, referrals, and accommodations can be provided more effectively. Our Special Guest, Dr. Beverly Poellnitz, Educator, Entrepreneur, along with other guests will enlighten us on how cultural considerations must be given when discussing any issue of learning, mental health, and performance. Host, Dr. Danita Applewhite shares current trends for employers, as well as teachers, that will help with ways to provide accommodations and stay legal with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Hear VET2VET conversations about how Student Veterans address asking for accommodations from Disabled Student Resources and Employee Assistance Programs. .

For years we have heard victims of Domestic Violence say they are staying for the sake of the children. Truth is they're doing their children no favors and expose them to greater harm than they imagine. Join me and my guest Dr. Yvette Kanarick , Psychologist and Author on August 17th, as we discuss attachment and bonding, influences on the behaviors of victims and batterers and the implications of child victims of domestic violence in the long run. The number for the show is 713-955-0734.
We're witnessing the spread of the spirit of defience and rebellion as we watch the accompanying
spirit of death rule. The prince of the power of the air is at work. What can therefore, we do besides watching?
We can proactively cover the children, grandchildren and great grand children with much prayer.
The times are desperate and only GOD'S help well do. HE is our only hope. Covering your children
is the most important work you can do. Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM, Mon.-Fri. Dial 714.459.3963.
Do we really have so much to hide from our children? Have you ever felt like there were things your children should not know? If so, what were they? What could possibly be damaging to them? Would it be better to let them know what is going on around them or let them live in an illusion? Do we pretend to be knowledgable when we aren't? Do we hide facts that could invalidate whe they already know? Do we tell them too much? Is a child's greatest asset their curious mind? In what way could be better serve our children so they grow up to be the person's they were meant to be and live the life they were meant to live?
Do you have visions of your children growing up successful or in a dismal world? Why do we separate children by ages? Is it to protect them from harm? Do you think our goal as adults is to provide protection for our children? If so, what do you do to protect your children, or, do you turn that over to "external authorities" who might know more than you?
