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.

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. This Student2Teacher™ Radio Show 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. . Would you please send your donation of at least $10 or more to continue our radio broadcasts, and help our students and Veterans with disabilities reach their education and workforce goals?

An innate intuitive, Maggi Trudeau, was born with the life path of "the Initiate" as was known in the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools. Always seeking "Truth", Maggi has experienced first hand Parallel Universes and Alternate Timelines. Although schooled in Philosophy with a minor in Psychology (she dropped the Psych. when she realized it held no "truth" for her.) She later graduated nursing school and worked in Post-Partum, Newborn Nursery and Geriatrics, where she was Charge Nurse. After witnessing the overt intrusion of the pharmaceutical industry, she retired and pursued her life-long interest in metaphysics and natural healing. Along this path she has made some amazingly powerful discoveries which we can all use for our own self-empowerment. Today Maggi, shares with us the basics of "How to Fuel Your Self Empowerment," using simple but ancient methods and oh- so very powerful as to which she can attest.
KC is a Hawaiian born Reiki Master Teacher/A.R.C.H. Master Level 1, who had a near-death experience at the age of 10, which profoundly affected her understanding of life as she knew it.

With a Bachelor's degree from the University of Wyoming that kept her in the 'real world' in her parents eyes, KC continuted studying and learning on the spiritual side of things. As events on our planet unfold, and new learnings-energies are heightened, KC works to keep up with new events that affect all life forms. Seeking, speaking and sharing the highest truth is her goal.
Babies who have had open-heart surgery, especially those with complex, congenital heart defects (CCHDs), are at much greater risk for brain injury or learning disabilities. Because of the heart defects themselves, and because of the complicated circulation involved with CCHDs, infants are more at risk for strokes. Infants who have had strokes often have brain injury due to stroke and those children with brain injuries caused in early childhood are more at risk for learning disabilities.
While this sounds very frightening, it doesn’t have to mean that your child’s quality of life will be greatly inferior to a child without a heart defect. Today’s show features a heart mom whose child had an anoxic brain injury (which is fairly uncommon), a pediatric cardiologist and pediatric neurologist from Boston Children’s Hospital, and a special education advocate. These expert Guests share information to help others navigate raising a child with a brain injury and/or learning disability.

The Virtual Learning Commons of a school replaces the website of the school library with a giant
collaborative where teacher librarians, teacher technologists, teachers, students, and parents are
creating the academic culture of the entire school. "If they build it, they will use it" is the guiding principle.
Mr.Foster will be interviewing Dr. Loertscher, who is a recognized expert in school library media centers, instructional design andinformation literacy, young adult materials, and collection development. An experienced instructor in school library media centers, instructional design,information literacy, young adult materials, and collection development as well.
Your teenager is failing school because he is drinking and doing drugs. Actually, he may be abusing drugs and drinking because he is failing school. The reason he is failing in school is because he has learning disabilities that no one recognizes. In order for his addiction treatment to be successful, it must address both his substance abuse and learning disabilities.Some promising studies indicate that teenagers with undiagnosed learning disabilities drink or abuse drugs because they are depressed, lonely, and suffer from low self-esteem. Low self-esteem is often a result of being unable to make friends and academic failure: problems that result from undiagnosed learning disabilities. Learning disabilities are neurological disorders that often run in families. According to the National Institute of Health, about one in five people has at least one learning disability that may make it difficult to learn to read or do mathematics. Attention Deficit-Disorder, autism, mental retardation, and conduct disorders are not learning disabilities.Often people with learning disabilities take in and process information differently than those without such disabilities. It can be hard for them to understand language easily or to organize their thoughts or their work. They may have trouble reading social cues and making friends.Teenagers who understand that they have a learning disability and who are able to succeed in certain areas are less likely to become alcoholics or drug abusers. The teens at risk are the ones who do not understand how their learning disabilities are affecting their lives. Dr. Merith Cosden believes that drugs and alcohol can become a way for those with learning disabilities to self-medicate for depression and loneliness.
