    Ask Dr. Applewhite About Support for 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. 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. .

    Computer America - Malwarebytes ; Parallels!

    in Technology

    Computer America


    Hour one: Malwarebytes. Adam Kujawa, Head of Malware Intelligence.


    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes and detects malware that even the biggest AV apps fail to...in fact, all of the big AV company tech support departments recommend Malwarebytes to their customers in addition to their own AV software. That's because Malwarebytes is not a replacement for anti-virus technology because you need both to properly protect your PC. So, just like having a seatbelt to be safe on the road isn't enough anymore, you need two different technologies, the seatbelt AND the airbag, to properly defend yourself in your car. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware catches the zero day, polymorphic and malware in the wild that standard AV technologies were not built to handle. 


     


    Hour two: Parallels. Kurt Schmucker, Senior Product Manager.


    Parallels lets you run Windows and even Linux on your Macintosh natively with all of the bells and whistles that go along with these operating systems!  You can run them concurrently with Mac OS X!  Or you can use a variety of different modes that let you run these different operating systems invisibly so you don't even have to know which OS is running at the moment!

    Off the Grid - Into the Heart with Sister Jenna on America Meditating Radio

    in Self Help

    Join Sister Jenna as she takes you on a journey off the grid and into the heart!


    In this fast-paced and often chaotic world, a multitude of obligations and everyday stresses of life can lead to anxiety and burn out, and with little time for a reality check. Under these conditions, our health, relationships and finances can cripple the chances for happiness. Being effective and staying on top of the game makes the simplest of tasks difficult.


    Our current world is in desperate need of renewal, and not that of the quick fixes and surface changes. We are in need of inner power, of stepping off the grid of society and into our own hearts. It is only there that lasting change will occur.


    For those who know they have more to give but struggle because of the demands on the Grid, Sister Jenna offers a groundbreaking new CD entitled, "Off the Grid, Into the Heart," a guided meditation for people on the move. It gently encourages moving thoughts to a higher level, even while performing everyday tasks.


    For over 20 years, Sister Jenna has spearheaded numerous projects, writings, lectures, retreats, and conversations around how to cultivate a practice of stillness while being in the midst of chaos. She understands the path to burnout and encourages the practice of "getting off the grid and into the heart." Sister Jenna believes that coming from a place of the heart fosters intentions and authentic expressions that not only serve the individual, but also the world.

    Blacks Who Persevered in Spite of Disabilities

    in Self Help

    Did you know that Whoopi Goldberg had a learning disorder as a child? Were you aware that Harriet Tubman had epilepsy? These are only two of the many examples of Blacks who became successful despite their disabilities. Some people tend to discourage others with disabilities from achieving their dreams because "it's for their own good"; they want to overprotect them or they just don't understand how a person can accomplish anything despite his/her "limitations." Once you hear these different celebrities' stories, you'll never view people with disabilities the same way again. You will be inspired and encouraged to uplift someone else and even accomplish your own goals!

    SED 583 - Socio-Cultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning Intro to Module 4

    in Education

    In Module 4 we will be discussing the socio-cultural dimensions of institutions, moving beyond the nominal definition of them as organizations housed in buildings, to a socio-cultural definition in which institutions include all types of socially constructed organizations: families, museums, schools, communities, and society. Some of the questions we will discuss include: How do groups, communities and societies use and appropriate the resources of free-choice learning institutions to support their “institutional” needs, interests and identities? How have cultural institutions historically supported/inhibited the socio-cultural dimensions and outcomes of learning?  What strategies and approaches have they employed to try to be socio-culturally relevant?  Our special guest is Laura Huerta Migus, who took the helm as executive director of the Association of Children's Museums (ACM) this past June. Prior to that, Laura was Director of Professional Development and Inclusion Initiatives at the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) where she previously also held the position of Director of Equity and Diversity. Laura also served on the staff at ACM from 2004-2006, as a program officer for education and operations.  Laura Huerta Migus is a nonprofit professional with more than a decade of experience in professional development, technical assistance, and grant management with a special emphasis on informal learninglearning.environments and community change efforts.  She is currently working with institutions nationally to help them become more culturally competent and responsible so that they can be effective change agents in their communities.  I think it will be a great conversation!

    Health Insurance for Developmental Disabilities: Proposed changes

    in Parents

    The ability for families to get services for children with developmental disabilities may increase if a new rule proposed under the Affordable Care Act becomes final.


    In this "Kids News Extra" segment Dr. T reviews the article, "Proposed Rule Mandates Coverage of Habilitation" from the ASHA Leader about proposed mandate to cover habilitative services.


    "Habilitation" is intervention to help a child build skills in which they are delayed or disordered. It's similar to the more familiar term of  "rehabilitation" whereby an individual receives intervention to regain skills that are lost second to an accident, a disease, or the like. 


    The ASHA Leader is a publication of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association which provides information for the public and governs the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology.


    This proposed rule goes beyond speech-language and hearing services and regards global developmental issues. We hope it's helpful.
