SORT BY Relevancy
It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment).
Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.
According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.
For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.
What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP? Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP? We're going to cover all of this and more!
If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you!
We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.
Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).
The mission of Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW), Inc. is to nurture and develop a different generation of African leaders through the vehicle of ACCESS to a NEW EDUCATION CULTURE AT THE BASIC LEVEL. A type of education that will focus on turning the gaze of the children away from avarice, extortion, selfishness, the vain, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth, and prepare them for leadership that embraces living for a higher purpose.
PACAW will empower these children and young men and women, through education, to subjugate their personal and tribal interests to the interest and well - being of their nations. PACAW is focusing in particular on the education of students in the primary and secondary schools in the neglected and underserved communities in Sub-Sahara Africa. The parents and the local community, including the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), play a central role in charting the course of the future of the children in accordance with their aspirations, and also in the implementation of the objectives of PACAW, Inc. There is strict monitoring and accountability by the PTA, school officials and PACAW, Inc.
The goal is to have a critical mass of a new and different generation of African leaders who will champion de facto development of Africa by Africans. Our hope is that these " NEW " African nations will become productive contributors to the well-being of the human family of nations, and partners with the other developed nations rather than dependents drowning in a culture of chronic beggarliness. PACAW, Inc. believes that intelligence, capability, courage and good character are spread handsomely by OUR CREATOR across all segments of the human race. Thus, with the right type of education, and persistent help from altruistic and visionary mentors, the new leadership in Africa would be able to overcome the Continent's monumental problems.

What strategies work for overcoming bullying? What kind of presentations can parents do to help schools understand the prevalence of congenital heart defects? What can parents do to make sure their children's school are safe for their congenital heart defect survivors? This episode will examine the answers to these questions and more.

Now in thinking about this week's show, I was about to go on and say that, I don't believe that enough is being done to support, advocate and create awareness for disabilities. Disabilities like my own(Spina Bifida) Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Celebal Palsy and so many others. But in thinking and doing some more search, I realize that there are. Walks, fundraisers. People like you and I going out and raising money and awareness for disabilities all scross the "board". The other thing that I was, and in a way still am concerned about is the amount of research that's done to help fight these dsiabilities, these "birth defects". You see reasearch studies posted and shared, but can the majority of the public find them? Let's be hones for a second. Most of us don't know where to look to find studies that have been shared publically. Maybe something should be said or done to make sure that this research, these studies are placed more so out into the open so that everyone can find them easily, without having to "dig around" for it.
We'll talk about this and more. This week. "On-Air".
Join us as we discuss TRUTH behind statistics and the target of the youth. Also, introducing YOUNG WORLD along with B from Fathers Advocacy.
Lets questions everything, educate ourselves and teach others.
