SORT BY Relevancy
Life for the retired NFL player has it's own unique circumstances and needs. Who represents your needs? Who speaks for you? Who is looking out for you?? There have been many improvements in recent years....MOST of them brought about because of you and other retirees are speaking out. There are quite a few advocates, even a few "groups" you can join, including the NFL Alumni and the NFLPA Retired Players. They all serve an important purpose and have made efforts on behalf of retired players even though they all have other interests that affect how they deal with your issues and concerns. Could it be time for a group that serves you as the primary concern and is not interested in engaging in "choosing sides"....or fighting rather than building?
Our guest today is Bob Grant, retired Baltimore Colt and Washington Redskins. In 1964 Bob was the first black football player to play for a major university in the south, Wake Forest. A long time advocate on behalf of retired NFL players and currently the Chairman of the Retired Players Congress. Bob will share information that has already changed the landscape of the retired NFL players relationship to their playing years. To contact Bob or Players Congress go to www.playercongress.com
We are happy to say our good friend Jennifer Cook-O'Toole is coming back to Autism and Scouting Radio.
Many scouts on the Autism Spectrum have an intense interest or two that can hold their attention for a long period of time. These are often referred to as "Special Interests".
In Jennifer's first book, "Asperkids: An Insider’s Guide to Loving, Understanding and Teaching Children with Asperger Syndrome", Jennifer, talks in depth how to get into a child's world via their special interest. Understanding how to tap into a scout's special interest and apply it to scouting can make scouting more rewarding and successful scouts, parents and leaders. I am going to give Jennifer a challenge. I will give her an area of scouting and a special interest that may seem unrelated to scouting and she will share ways that you can teach the scout and help him or her engage and relate to others using that special interest
Jennifer, besides being a SuperMom, Autism Advocate and Aspie herself is an Award winning author and the creator of Asperkids, LLC. Her latest book, "The Asperkid’s (Secret) Book of Social Rules: A Handbook of Not-So-Obvious Social Guidelines for Teens & Tweens with Asperger Syndrome" is a must read for anybody that has a scout who has Asperger's.

Danielle Kovach, The Clarissa Hug Teacher of the Year is our guest .
Presented by THE SOCIAL EXPRESS.
Who likes bad dialog? Absolutely nobody. Trust me. Unless you are intentionally trying to make your characters sound stiff and unnatural (which there might be some reason for that), no reader wants to slog through stilted, awkward exchanges between your characters.
Today we'll be discussing some tips and tricks to make your dialog sound natural and flow through a scene without causing readers to lose interest or skim. Dialog can make or break a scene, so don't let weak speech patterns and word choice be the reason readers turn to another book.
How should we be teaching our students with special needs? We start by presuming competence and believing that all children be held to high academic expectations. To hear more about the importance of presuming competence, listen to guests, Paula Lieb and Lauri Swann Hunt share their thoughts with Nicole and Terri.

How many writing rules are there? Too many to count. Do you have to follow them all, every time, in every situation? If you try to, you'll make yourself go crazy. The important thing about writing rules is knowing why the exist. When you know why something is a rule, you'll be able to determine when to stick to it and when to break it. Today we'll be talking about some popular writing rules that don't always need to be heeded.
