Join parenting expert Dr. Annie Abram, Ph.D. on March 29th, 2010. She will talk about how parenthood presents opportunities for self-transformation throughout our lifetime. The parenting experience provides on-going opportunities to think about our life stories and understand how this narrative informs our daily life. We become mindful by making the connection between today and yesterday allowing ourselves to live in the present.

Are you outraged by custody battles frequently resulting in decisions that are not in the best interest of the child? We must find ways to change the justice system that discriminates against the "good enough" mother, and awards custody to fathers, who have proven themselves to be unfit, disinterested in the role, and often neglectful/abusive. Join Dr. Annie Abram and Dr. Phyllis Chesler, author of "Mothers on Trial: The Battle for Children and Custody" for the live discussion.

Whether you are a student or parent, the college admission’s process can be stressful and mystifying. How do you choose a school that is the best fit for you? What about finances? What’s the average number of schools a student typically applies to? Should equal valence be given to academics and social/cultural environments? When is the best time for students to begin to look at colleges? How important is an on-site visit to schools?
Is requesting an interview the best way to go even if it's not a requirement for admissions?
In short, what are the most important things to consider when applying to colleges?
Our guest today is Sheryl Santiago, independent educational consultant and owner of Coll-Edge Partners, LLC. Ms. Santiago is a member of the Higher Education Consultants Association.
Her business philosophy is based on the belief that there is no reason to focus on one dream school or think that getting into a particular college will determine a students' success in life. In fact, the "Best College" is the one that is the best fit for your individual student, and the good news is that students generally have many choices. A successful search is not about name or prestige- it's about where your student will have the best opportunity to thrive.
Sheryl Santiago works with students to determine a good mix of 8-10 schools, help them through the visit, interview, essay and application process and in many cases, after acceptance, can help parents appeal for more gifts, grants and scholarship monies. She knows that not every school is right or affordable for every student, so she takes a realistic approach with each family.
There are many misconceptions about what it means to be gifted.
Gifted Students Don’t Need Help; They’ll Do Fine On Their Own.
Would you send a star athlete to train for the Olympics without a coach? Gifted students need guidance from well-trained teachers who challenge and support them in order to fully develop their abilities. Many gifted students may be so far ahead of their same-age peers that they know more than half of the grade-level curriculum before the school year begins. Their resulting boredom and frustration can lead to low achievement, despondency, or unhealthy work habits. The role of the teacher is crucial for spotting and nurturing talents in school.

Today, we will talk about gifted children with Kathleen Gallagher, an educator and parent of a gifted child.
Kathleen Gallagher is an educator and in a few days she is starting her 20th year at Eagle Hill Southport School, an independent day school for children with learning disabilities.
Kathleen is also a mother of two children; one of whom, has been identified as gifted and talented.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 68 children (or 14.7 per 1,000 eight-year-olds) in multiple communities in the United States has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This new estimate is roughly 30 percent higher than previous estimates reported in 2012 of 1 in 88 children (11.3 per 1,000 eight year olds) being identified with an autism spectrum disorder. The number of children identified with ASD ranged from 1 in 175 children in Alabama to 1 in 45 children in New Jersey” (4/27/2014 press release).
Autism Speaks, a not for profit advocacy organization, devoted to understanding autism from all perspectives (research, treatment, effects on family) has made contributions to the understanding of ASD which greatly enhance the lives of those living with ASD, their families and communities.
Dr. Paul Wang, SVP Autism Speaks and head of medical research, will talk with us about the 2013 Top Ten Advances in Autism Research winners as identified by Autism Speaks.
It should be emphasized that the earlier a child is diagnosed with ASD and receives therapeutic services, his/her life chances for education, employment, and overall socialization dramatically increase.
Dr. Paul Wang joined Autism Speaks in September 2013 as the organization’s senior vice president and head of medical research.
Dr. Wang graduated from Harvard College with a bachelor of arts in biomedical sciences and received his medical degree from the Yale University School of Medicine. He completed a residency and chief residency in pediatrics at the University of Michigan, a research fellowship at the Salk Institute and a clinical fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Today's guests, Drs. Angel Harris and Keith Robinson will discuss their book "The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education." Many of their research findings turn our traditional beliefs about a child's school achievement and its relationship to parental involvement with school on its head.
Angel Harris is a Professor of Sociology at Duke University. His research interests include social inequality, policy, and education. My work focuses on the social psychological determinants of the racial achievement gap. Specifically, I examine the factors that contribute to differences in academic investment among African Americans, Latino/as, Asian Americans, and Whites. I also study the impact that adolescents' perceptions of opportunities for upward socio-economic mobility have for their academic investment, and the long-term effects of youths' occupational aspirations both within the United States and Europe.
Keith Robinson is An Assistant Professor of Sociology at The University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the determinants and implications of test score (achievement) inequality in K-12 education. Dr. Robinson's work highlights the extent to which family and school factors contribute to achievement inequality, and suggests ways to equalize these differences. Much can be learned by examining the various stages of K-12 education since the determinants of achievement disparities change as children progress through schooling.
There’s a revolution taking place in understanding Learning Disabilities. With new neuroscientific findings, we see that an individual with dyslexia--a language based LD-- has a brain that works differently while reading. Educators at all levels are taking this new knowledge to use new assistive technologies to tailor content to the individual mind of the student. Now, a student with dyslexia and a student with aspraxia -- whose brain has problems planning to move the body parts (e.g., lips, jaw, tongue) needed for speech -- in the same classroom, can have their individual lessons optimized for their particular strengths and weaknesses.
Ben Powers is the headmaster of Eagle Hill-Southport, an independent day school in Connecticut for students with learning disabilities. Prior to joining the school in 2012, he served as headmaster of The Kildonan School. He is a passionate member of and advocate in the field of dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD and is on the board of directors of Headstrong Nation and Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities.
