    Group Homes for Children with Developmental Disabilities

    in School

    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.

    Ask Dr. Applewhite About Learning Disabilities

    in Education

    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. .

    Developmental Delays and 5p-

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Laura Castillo, Executive Director of FivePMinus.org, helping families affected by Cri du Chat (Cat Cry) Syndrome (CdCs).

    Babies born with CdCs are characterized at birth by a high-pitched cry, low birth weight, poor muscle tone, microcephaly, and potential medical complications.  "5p-" is a term used by geneticists to describe a portion of the short arm of chromosome number five that is missing in these individuals.  Some of the facial characteristics include:

    Round "moon shaped" face
    Small upturned nose at birth
    Small or low set chin (micrognathis)
    Low positioned ears
    Downward slanting of the eyes
    Wide spaced eyes
    Extra skin fold at the inner corner of one or both eyes (epicanthal fold)

    These facial features usually elongate as the child enters adulthood.  Children with CdCs are often also diagnosed with autism since many of the developmental issues are similar.

    There is a great deal of good information on this syndrome on their website.  See especially http://www.fivepminus.org/Development

    Laura shares with us the origins of the 5p- Society, the national family support group for individuals with Cri du Chat Syndrome.  They group shares expeerience and provides support to individuals and families affected by CdCs, sharing strategies for managing the syndrome and supporting their children in achieving his or her maximum potential  Children with Cri du Chat Syndrome can lead full and meaningful lives with love and support.
