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.
Pieces of the Puzzle: A Personal Journey of Raising a Child With Special Needs with Wendy Keyes Roback
In Pieces of the Puzzle, Wendy Keyes Roback shares her personal account of parenting a special needs child and her quest for answers about her son, who is eventually diagnosed with a significant hearing loss and a rare genetic condition. Get ready for laughs and tears as Wendy recounts the highs and lows she experiences during the first seven years of Jaden's life, and be there as she struggles with the issues that raising this unique child brings.
Eventually, this mother learns that her son's condition does not define him, and that having a special needs child is not the life-shattering diagnosis most expect it to be. She realizes that Jaden is perfect just the way he is and that the life she was given is even better than the life she envisioned. Pieces of the Puzzle is optimistic, honest, and empowering, offering hope and inspiration to other parents and affording the reader a glimpse into the life of a very special child.

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.

Pets Teach Us So Much Radio is so happy to have Author, Angie Bailey join us tonight to chat about her new book, Texts From Mittens. We love Angie and we can't wait to talk about that Judge Judy loving kitty, Mittens!
Plus we have our usual, unusual, funny and informative mayhem on tap.
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.

today, we will be discussing Works.
Not a popular subject, but one that we need to talk about. As usual, needs take center stage. If you have a need, or the ability to meet a need, let us knor at anytime by using our call in line, chat, or email. God meets needs, but he uses us to do the work.
Needs Met is a Christian Non-profit 501c3 Ministry and Church that looks for needs in our community and meets those needs through others that want to help meet those needs. Needs can be most anyting like;
services like BabySitting, Resumes, handman services etc...
God is our source for the meeting of needs, but God uses you and me to do His work.
If you have a need, please let us know and watch as God meets that need.
If you have the ability and desire to meet a need, God wants you! God can use you to meet the needs of others. But you have to let someone know that you are able and willing to meet needs. Offer up yor ability, resource, or talent that you have and watch as God uses it to help those in need.

A child’s special needs diagnosis affects the whole family. Parents find themselves struggling with grief, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and even an unexpected sense of relief. This gamut of emotions can be confusing for ministry leaders as they work with families; it can be difficult to know what to do and how to help.
Join host Katie Wetherbee as she interviews Barb Dittrich, Executive Director of Snappin’ Ministries. Barb will share information from her experiences working with parents—and from her own journey as a mom. You’ll come away with practical ideas for supporting parents, as well as clear insight on the process of parenting a child with disabilities. She will illuminate listeners about the effect of disabilities on marriages and sibling relationships as well.
Katie is an educational consultant for Hope Educational Consulting who works with churches, families, and schools. She is also a writer; her articles have been featured on the MOPS and Power of Moms blogs as well as the Huffington Post and in KidzMatter Magazine. Katie is currently the special needs columnist for Children’s Ministry Magazine. In addition, she and author Jolene Philo are currently writing a book called Every Child Welcome, which will be published in April 2015. Katie and her husband, Tom, live in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, with their teenagers and a quirky mutt named Mitzie.
Today we will talk to Handicapped Pets.com who makes fully adjustable wheel chairs for dogs and other products to give comfort and a higher quality of life to animals with physical challenges.
