    Addressing Chronic Pain in Adults & Kids with Intellectual Disabilities

    in Health

    Children and adults with intellectual or developmental disability may not be able to always tell you that they are experiencing pain, but it’s our responsibility to understand there are many reasons that people with ID/DD are experiencing pain. In this episode of Pain Waves Radio by Pain BC, Dr. Beverley Temple discusses how we can improve the quality of life of those with ID/DD by addressing the issue of chronic pain.

    Dr. Temple is an Associate Professor with the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Health Sciences, College of Nursing and a Researcher with the St. Amant Research Centre. Her research focuses on support of people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and Autism and their families.

    This episode is generously co-sponsored by the Kootenay Community Council. The Kootenay Community Council, and other Community Councils around the province, work with Community Living BC (CLBC) to ensure accountability to communities, to inform CLBC of local trends and innovation, and to act in an advisory role at the local and regional levels. Community Living BC is the Crown Corporation that provides funding to support adults who are living with developmental disabilities in BC.

    Removal or Deportation

    in Legal

    When an immigrant violates U.S. immigration laws, The DHS is the umbrella agency for sub-agencies like ICE and USCIS.  DHS, ICE, USCIS and all other sub-agencies are collectively called the “government.”The Immigration Court (IC) was set up to settle two main issues:  First, it determines an alien’s admissibility.  Second, it determines an alien’s removability/deportability (only the government is allowed to initiate removal proceedings). As an example, to initiate removal the ICE issues a Notice to Appear (NTA), which is filed with the Immigration Court (IC).  After the NTA is filed, the IC sends out a Notice of Hearing (NOH) to the Respondent (in the immigration court setting, the alien is always the respondent), Removal/deportation becomes a legal action once the Government has initiated a lawsuit against an alien.  In any legal action there are two parties:  Plaintiff/Petitioner/Movant versus Defendant/Respondent.Although respondents can represent themselves, it’s not a good idea because the government has its own lawyer to represent it before the IC.  In addition, based on the facts available, the respondent’s attorney may help them identify relief, which is what is presented to the IJ to show why the respondent might be able to stay in the U.S.The NTA contains factual allegations and the charges (what the government uses to determine if the respondent is removable/deportable).  Marcus Jarvis 763 425 5447 www.m-jlawltd.com / www.a-tbooks.com
