You don’t look “disabled”! Many have thought this statement and/or said it. This is a major reason why many people with a mental/learning or non-visible disability are hesitant to communicate their needs for accommodations at school or on the job? Unfortunately, many adults in the workplace today experienced negative stereotypes in early school years about people who learn differently than others and never learned or were too fearful to communicate their need for help. Special Guest Robert Hickem from Salt River Council joins to discuss the importance of communication between agencies and the persons with disabilities they serve. Today’s Veteran with a mental disability, along with many other non-military personnel, need to learn how to communicate their needs when dealing with challenges such as PTSD. Hear Chip Stoecker, Veteran, and Manager of the Ability Center in Phoenix share suggestions on ways to improve our communication skills. Veterans join our VET2VET™ segment for news updates and commentary at the end of the show.

On Monday, December 15th, at 8PM eastern we are pleased to interview Amy Joy Smith.
Amy Joy Smith is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in Functional Medicine and heads up the integrative PANS / PANDAS Treatment Program of Hill Park Medical Center in Petaluma, California. She is the mother of an amazing child who has healed from PANDAS and a dedicated PANDAS awareness advocate.
Amy has practiced functional and nutritional medicine since the early 1980′s and has studied with a number of pioneers in the field. Her treatments are progressive and blend the best of medical science with leading edge natural therapies and using food as medicine. Her first PANDAS patient was her own son in 2009 and she now sees hundreds of children with PANDAS from all over the world. She brings the same creative approach to treating these children as she used with her own child and believes that this is the only way to get kids better – fearless out-of-box thinking and a belief that children can recover from PANDAS.
Amy serves on the PANDAS Network.org.org Board of Directors and was the lead organizer of the West Coast PANDAS/PANS Parent Symposiums held in San Francisco in April 2012 and 2014. She has spoken at several PANDAS conferences and recently had the honor of giving a workshop with Dr. Susan Swedo to over 200 school nurses in Rhode Island on recognizing PANDAS in school children and providing educational supports and accommodations! Imagine that!
Amy’s personal blog on the journey of her son’s illness and recovery from PANDAS – and now her own personal recovery from PANDAS-Hell – receives thousands of hits from all over the world. Her intention is that it provides hope and inspiration for families in the thick of it, that there is a roadmap and there is life beyond PANDAS.
Dr. Applewhite has held many discussions about the reasons why parents drop-out of college and the workforce. These are parents categorized as "non-traditional" adult learners/students that do not fit the stereotype held of the "traditional" college student. According to research, nearly two-thirds of "non-traditional" adult college students in the U.S. drop out prior to graduation! This is largely due to the lack of planning in all areas of life, sound advisement, and counseling intervention. Adult students with a learning or mental disability, who are parents, carry the additional responsibility of being a role model for their own children to finish school and learning to advocate for accommodations. Hear a unique insight on working parents with mental illness in light of Miriam Carey's shooting incident last year. This show will also shed light on the many alarming reasons Adult Learners/Students drop-out and struggle with the idea of going to back to school and finishing the courses started. Awareness is the first step needed to motivate and encourage those struggling to manage family responsibilities, stressful work and school schedules, and even non-visible disabilities. Special Guests are educational experts, Dr. Kelmer Muhammad and Dr. Sarah Tolliver who share ideas about managing stress to prevent drop-out. Join Dr. Applewhite and guests as they discuss how many overcome difficult experiences and transitions, especially Student Veterans with families.

Most teachers, from elementary to college levels, are able to identify when students have difficulty learning, within the first weeks of a semester. However, employers and co-workers are not able or qualified to identify employees with Learning Disabilities unless the person is willing to ask for an accommodation. This Student2Teacher™ Radio Show will clarify how support, referrals, and accommodations can be provided more effectively. Our Special Guest, Dr. Beverly Poellnitz, Educator, Entrepreneur, along with other guests will enlighten us on how cultural considerations must be given when discussing any issue of learning, mental health, and performance. Host, Dr. Danita Applewhite shares current trends for employers, as well as teachers, that will help with ways to provide accommodations and stay legal with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
