    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.

    LIVE! with Cathi---For the LOVE of Pets!

    in Fitness

    From the mouth of a PET...


    Hi there, three years ago, I became someone's pet, and it was the best thing that ever happened to me!


    I love having human beings in my life.  I'm cared for beyond my wildest dreams...food...shelter and lots of love and affection.  I know having an owner is great but I wondered, "is owning a pet as great for people."  I asked around and found owing a pet can be a great thing!


    Pets are good company.  A cat or dog have been know to fill an empty nest when kids go off to college.  No matter the weather, my owner has to get out of the house to walk me, great exercise.


    Did you know pets are good for your health...pets can lower blood pressure.  Pets are perennial playmates.  Permanent play dates for only children and for teens who are stingy with hugs for their parents, a pet is the perfect object of affection for cuddling.


    Money will buy a fine dog, but only LOVE will make him wag his tail!


    STAY TUNED...


    Pets and responsibility...etc.


    Pets are entertaining...etc.


    Pets are a great way to meet...etc.


    Rescue a dog-cat from a shelter...etc.


    Best reason of all...LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY...etc.

    Pets Teach Us So Much Radio 157 with Robbin and Joseph Everett

    in Pets

    Award winning Director and Co-writter of the Award Winning Movie, White God, Kornel Mundruczo join's us this week.


    Winner of the Prize Un Certain Regard Award at this year’s Cannes Festival, Kornel Mundruczo’s newest film is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed “human superiors,” but it’s also an brutal, beautiful metaphor for the political and cultural tensions sweeping contemporary Europe. When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen, because it's mixed-breed heritage is deemed 'unfit' by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called 'unfit' dogs rise up under a new leader, Hagen, the one-time housepet who has learned all too well from his 'Masters' in his journey through the streets and animal control centers how to bite the hands that beats him …


    “FIERCE AND BEAUTIFUL. Extraordinarily choreographed.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times


    "REMARKABLE AND RIVETING. This surprising movie is perhaps the most memorable of all the films I saw at this year's Cannes Film Festival. It's haunting, and quite extraordinary." - Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood


    "Emotionally rousing and technically masterful." – Guy Lodge, Variety


    “A triumphantly idiosyncratic film with smarts and visceral impact in equal measure.” – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist on Indiewire


    “A potent metaphor for everything from immigration to the abuse of power, with it’s striking finale serving as stark warning about our own arrogant belief that we’ll always be at the top of the food chain.” – Alistair Harnkess, The Scotsman
