    Autism, Seeing the World From a Different Angle

    in Family

    Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. 


    ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.


    Autism appears to have its roots in very early brain development. However, the most obvious signs of autism and symptoms of autism tend to emerge between 2 and 3 years of age. Autism Speaks continues to fund research on effective methods for earlier diagnosis, as early intervention with proven behavioral therapies can improve outcomes. Increasing autism awareness is a key aspect of this work and one in which our families and volunteers play an invaluable role.


    Please Welcome our special guests who have taken the time out to tell their stories.

    A Unique Life Fully Lived with Karen Kain

    in Spirituality

    Karen Kain is committed to helping children who are living a unique life experience by supporting their parents. In 1994, her daughter, Lorrin, was severely vaccine injured and at that time Karen’s world fell apart.  Life as she knew it was put “on hold” as she tried everything that she could to “heal” Lorrin and give her the best life possible.  Karen was forced to over come massive rejection and isolation as she hurdled obstacles and adapted her life to find success as a parent of a unique child. What Karen did not expect on this journey was that she herself would learn, grow and even heal from her experiences. Lorrin it turned out was always the teacher.  Lorrin was totally comfortable with who she was, even though she was cortically blind, nonverbal, and a quadriplegic who lived with uncontrolled seizures for her entire life.


    When Lorrin was 3, Karen made a pivitol choice to embrace Lorrin’s uniqueness and enjoy all areas of life, living without rules and boundaries.  Karen overcame life’s massive roadblocks as she raised Lorrin. Together they held their heads high as they paved the way to giving all parents permission to explore and enjoy life.  Karen found that the solution to winning in this life of parenting a unique child started with being committed to having a great attitude and perspective regardless of their situation.  She is the author of A Unique Life Fully Lived.  www.karenkain.com

    Relationships-What is LOVE ? GOOD Love Making; is it needed ?

    in Relationships

    What makes a healthy love relationship?



    Staying involved with each other. Some relationships get stuck in peaceful coexistence, but without truly relating to each other and working together. While it may seem stable on the surface, lack of involvement and communication increases distance. When you need to talk about something important, the connection and understanding may no longer be there.

    Getting through conflict. Some couples talk things out quietly, while others may raise their voices and passionately disagree. The key in a strong relationship, though, is not to be fearful of conflict. You need to be safe to express things that bother you without fear of retaliation, and be able to resolve conflict without humiliation, degradation or insisting on being right.

    Keeping outside relationships and interests alive. No one person can meet all of our needs, and expecting too much from someone can put a lot of unhealthy pressure on a relationship. Having friends and outside interests not only strengthens your social network, but brings new insights and stimulation to the relationship, too.

    Communicating. Honest, direct communication is a key part of any relationship. When both people feel comfortable expressing their needs, fears, and desires, trust and bonds are strengthened. Nonverbal cues—body language like eye contact, leaning forward or away, or touching someone’s arm—are critical to communication.

    Recognizing Non-Verbal Sex Signals

    in Relationships

    SPECIAL GUEST Taria Cooper will be joining us with some "toy" knowledge. Whether you want to pamper yourself, add a little spice in the bedroom or explore intimacy with your partner, Bedroom Kandi's award winning line of high quality bedroom accessories has something for you.


    Before developing speech, we communicated with our bodies. We still subconsciously use those instinctive responses to express our feelings. So if you can interpret a person's signals, it's like having a backstage pass to their psyche. Listen to learn how to respond with some undercover communication of your own.


    Communication can be either verbal or nonverbal. Nonverbal communication is more immediate, but more ambiguous than verbal communication. Men and women differ significantly in their propensity to use nonverbal communication, their skill in interpreting it and their means of signaling their meaning. Accordingly, understanding gender differences in nonverbal communication is important when dealing with the opposite sex.

    Effective Communication Strategies

    in Christianity

    The Masterpiece Marriage presents "Effective Communication Strategies"


    When couples promise to LOVE, HONOR & CHERISH their spouses until death do us part they are making a commitment they hope will lead to a strong marriage. Most people want to be in relationships where they care about and are cared for by their spouse, where they intend to persevere through the inevitable ups and downs, and where they have a long-term view of the relationship. One mechanism through which these goals are met is communication. Through the utilization of verbal and nonverbal communication strategies couples in committed marriages develop a sense of "TOGETHER-NESS" that sustains them through difficulties and over time.

    John Kline Can End The Beatings!

    in Current Events

    The present number of knowledgeable American adults of the cruel act of striking America’s sons and daughters in schools with wooden boards still being legal, is sufficient for having this class of “voiceless” citizens gain federal “legislative protection” from this practice swiftly (targeted primarily at socioeconomically-disadvantaged students and those having special needs, particularly nonverbal autism).


    The bill is already in the hands of the appropriate federal leader, John Kline, US Education Committee Chairman (also member of US Armed Services), having been introduced to Congress, not once, not twice, but three times by the lovely New York Representative Carolyn McCarthy, widowed through an egregious act of violence, herself (having in mind a decrease in crime through a decrease in teacher-to-student assaults).


    Chairman Kline is empowered to bring this brutal form of student “bullying” by American educators to an end--he also receives a six-figured salary to do so.


    Are you a parent?  Guardian?  Concerned citizen?

    Do All Relationship Problems Stem From Poor Communication?

    in Self Help

    Do All Relationship Problems Stem From Poor Communication as claimed by relationship experts?


    According to many relationship experts, all relationship problems stem from poor communication. Of course it sounds very logical that: "You can't communicate while you're checking your iPhone, watching TV, or flipping through the latest publication." This may or may not be truth in an unresolved relationship problem.


    Here are some of the Relationship Problem-Solving Strategies that has been suggested by experts:



    It has been said to make an actual appointment with each other. If you live together, put your cell phones on vibrate, if you have small children, put the kids to bed, and let voicemail pick up your calls.
    Go to a public spot like the library, park, or restaurant where you'd be embarrassed if anyone saw you raise your voice and screaming.
    Set up rules, not to interrupt until the other person is through speaking, and use derogatory phrases of accusations.
    Show you're listening. Don’t involve or performing other chores during the meeting. Nod often for agreement and confirmation that you heard the message.


    Even though those are well and excellent suggestions with the best intentions, it may or may not affect the relationship problems let alone resolve it.  There must be more specific strengthening of the weaknesses associated with relationship problematic situations. 


    Relationship problems can always, without exception be resolved, through the increase of nonverbal communication, which is telepathic. If you don’t know much about how this resolves relationship problems immediately on the spot, you can ask Dr. Yuen, the founder of the Yuen Method, how this is done on his LIVE radio show.
