    IEPs for You and Me

    in Parents

    Who owns the IEP process? Hear some insight from a special needs mom who's also a special education teacher. 



    Parents don't always realize how much work goes into an IEP, or how challenging it is for the teachers who write them.
    Teachers don't always appreciate how lost parents can feel through the whole process.
    Kids rarely get the full spectrum of services that will make for the most enriching educational experience possible. 


    Parents have to be the final driving force in the education of their child, because the only thing that will follow a child from pre-k to graduation is that IEP file and parental guidance.


    Be sure to check out the IEP Aide from Vestidd, which will guide you through the important information on that IEP, and will allow you to store all of that paperwork easily, so that you can be the driving force and let that IEP grow with your child.

    Special Needs Parenting

    in Lifestyle

    Join me and my special guest Stephanie Collins, as we discuss her struggles as a parent with special needs children and how writing down about her experiences was not only therapeutic, but led her to write a book. "With Angels Wings", tells the  story of what she went through without romanticizing or glazing over the most difficult times. Her message is to tell the parents of special needs children that they are not alone, to give professionals working with these parents a perspective, and to give all others a glimpse into the world of special needs children.

    "Celebrity Interracial Adoption: Love Or Fad?"

    in Lifestyle

    Our host returns live tonight at 11 pm...tonight we will be revisiting the subject of celebrity interracial adoption. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were among the first Hollywood couples known for adopting internationally. In the most recent time period, many more celebrities have come forth to do the same, and the difference is that more Black children are the adoptees than ever before. The challenges of standard adoption in itself fare difficult enough, and one of the major challenges is the desire of the adoptee to connect with his or her identity. Are the challenges of interracial adoption by high profile figures doubled? Is the cultural identity of the adoptee at a higher risk of being eradicated by these adoptees? And in cases such as Madonna who has been in controversy for making racial slurs and has now adopted two more Black children, are these celebrities adopting out of love or commercial gain? Join in tonight at 11 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
