    What is an Educational Unit?

    in Training

    What are Educational Units that we have now added to our certification process (in replace of electives)? 


    In many professions, after obtaining their degree, a person is must do continuing education on an ongoing basis in order to maintain their status in that profession.  While we do not require our students to do anything after certification, at The Healing Arts Learning Organization we value the need for continuing education.  We value it so much that we have used elements of it and incorporated it into our certification process as - EDUCATIONAL UNITS!  An Educational Unit is a "point" you will obtain by attending other trainings that will help grow your birth business.  One Educational Unit is granted for every two hours of additional learning you participate in.  (The total number of educational units required for certification can be found on the Doula Training page.  A student can use a maximum of 6 educational units per topic to count toward certification.)    


    Use this opportunity to help complete your education in areas you feel you need more knowledge, obtain training in areas that will help provide additional income streams that compliment your birth business or to gain knowledge in new topics of interest that will make you a well-rounded doula after certification.  Don't have previous business experience?  Didn't breastfeed yourself?  This requirement is a great chance to take courses that will not only customize your training to your unique needs, but also qualify toward your certification!  Search your area to find what might be available, as this will be a great opportunity to make connections in the community.


    Let's use this broadcast to brainstorm some ideas of what you can use as an Educational Unit!

    Back2Us Show: Educational Advocacy 101

    in LGBT

    It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment). 


    Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.  


    According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.  


    For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it  is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.  


    What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP?  Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP?  We're going to cover all of this and more! 


    If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you! 


    We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.  


    Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).

    Educational Hip Hop - Rapper LAK

    in Culture

    Join The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Lak, Hip Hop at it's best!


    Larry “LAK” Henderson is the founder of Smart Music Entertainment, and the creator of a new sound of hip-hop music that is used as a tool to educate and awaken the consciousness of youth and people in our communities. His album, Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, has hit Amazon bestseller lists (#1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in Educational Music), and has received airplay on major radio stations around the world, due to his combination of deep, historical insights and authentic hip-hop sound.


    The album features songs about African and African-American history, politics, geography, money management, and commentary on the social war raging in our urban communities. CBS calls Lesson One “creative, innovative, and informative.” Dominion of New York Magazine says, “Most people who use hip-hop to educate do so badly. Lak does it so well.”


    Lak is a social critic, history and religion intellectual, and an innovative education advocate. Through his company’s Smart Music Insights initiative, he offers free performances and educational workshops for urban youth; guidance for parents and youth educators on ways to foster learning; and original songwriting to support awareness campaigns for positive community organizations. Lak holds degrees in Africana Studies, Communications, and Labor Studies from Rutgers University, and studied studio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research.


    Lak has been featured as a guest on a host of radio and television programs, including London UK’s BANG 103.6 FM, CBS, KMOJ 89.9 FM Minneapolis, WVON 1690 AM Chicago, WPRB 103.3 FM Princeton University, WRSU 88.7 FM Rutgers University, WMNF 88.5 Tampa, BET, LA Talk Radio, and many more.
