    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.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #127 The Challenges Of Raising Special Needs Children

    in Lifestyle

    Icylee Basketbill and Kelly Pointer will be our guests on this show to discuss Special Needs and the challenges that the parents of Special needs children face on a daily basis.



    Every child born into this world is a blessing and there is nothing that feels as special as bringing a child into this world. We also have to take into account that some children are born into this world with needs that require a different level of attention than the average child.

    Historically Special needs children would be labelled as retarded, sick, touched, slow or even freaks. Fortunately we have come very far in our understanding of how the brain functions and we have taken away the negative stigmas and are able to provide the children with the help that they need. The goal is to develop them into fully functional adults that are able to meet life's challenges the same as any other person.

    Whether your child is mentally challenged, autistic, has cerebral palsy etc, it's gonna be very tough for a parent mentally, emotionally and especially financially. Our 2 guests will be on hand to help with any questions you may have concerning this such as:

    What causes a child to be have special needs?

    Is there anything that can be done to prevent it?

    What happens if the parent of a special needs child dies before the child or is not physically able to provide care?

    Is it normal to feel embarrassment or shame about your child and what can be done about it if you do?

    What are the financial requirements needed to take care of a special needs child?

    How does the attention needed for a special needs child affect the other children that you have?

    There will be so much to talk about on this show so make sure you don't miss it.

    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.
