Bill Jeffries and John Singer, hosts of Professional Development Straegies launch the radio series with an introduction to Career Transition, Development and Advancement.
Now in thinking about this week's show, I was about to go on and say that, I don't believe that enough is being done to support, advocate and create awareness for disabilities. Disabilities like my own(Spina Bifida) Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Celebal Palsy and so many others. But in thinking and doing some more search, I realize that there are. Walks, fundraisers. People like you and I going out and raising money and awareness for disabilities all scross the "board". The other thing that I was, and in a way still am concerned about is the amount of research that's done to help fight these dsiabilities, these "birth defects". You see reasearch studies posted and shared, but can the majority of the public find them? Let's be hones for a second. Most of us don't know where to look to find studies that have been shared publically. Maybe something should be said or done to make sure that this research, these studies are placed more so out into the open so that everyone can find them easily, without having to "dig around" for it.
We'll talk about this and more. This week. "On-Air".
John Singer and Bill Jeffries, Hosts of Professional Development Strategies open the first episode discussing proper preparation for Career Transition and Network Methodologies.
Qualitative research is like completing a complex puzzle in which you put all the pieces together to create a picture. However, qualitative research is unique as a puzzle in that the researcher must first collect and analyze the puzzle pieces before putting the picture together. Join me and Dr. Paula Dawidowicz, Research Coordinator for the Ph.D. in Education Program at Walden University, as we discuss some of the ”puzzle pieces" of qualitative research that challenge novice researchers. Research problems vs. social problems, writing researchable questions, alignment of problem, purpose and questions, choosing appropriate methods, using theory effectively, conceptual frameworks versus theoretical frameworks, data collection techniques, data analysis and interpretation, and writing up findings are all topics for discussion in this show. Join us.

The Fatherhood Research and Practice Network (FRPN) is a five-year national project funded through the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation. The goals of the FRPN are to:
Promote rigorous evaluation of fatherhood programs that serve low-income fathers. FRPN will fund the evaluation of programs that aim to increase paternal engagement and parenting skills; improve fathers’ ability to provide economic support; and increase parenting time, father-child contact, positive co-parenting and healthy relationships.
Expand the number of researchers and practitioners collaborating to evaluate fatherhood programs through in-person and virtual trainings.
Disseminate information, including new evaluation findings, that leads to effective fatherhood practice and evaluation research.
This project is led by Jay Fagan, Ph.D., professor of social work at Temple University and founding editor of the journal Fathering, and Jessica Pearson, Ph.D., director of the Center for Policy Research in Denver, Colorado. FRPN also includes a steering committee and four workgroups consisting of 40 leading national fatherhood researchers and practitioners who help guide the direction of the project.

Motor skills involve the muscle movements your child makes. Sensory skills involve taking in information from environment like things we see, feel, and touch.
Occupational Therapists are experts in the development and functioning of motor and sensory skills.
Accomplished Occupational Therapist, Karen Katzman of "Manhattan East Associates, Pediatric Occupational Therapy" in New York City is our fantastic guest.
