    Helping Parents Fund Therapeutic Boarding Schools

    in Family

    Therapeutic Boarding Schools are expensive, so how do parents afford them?  Scott Leshin, Founder and President of SJ Personal Healthcare Advocates, joined Lon February 27, 2015 to explain how his business was founded to help parents handle what might at first seem overwhelming.  Working on a contingency basis, Scott explained there are a lot of potential resources for parents such as insurance and school district financing through the Individual Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  The best way for parents to access these resources are to work with a professional who knows the system and how to help parents work through the health insurance and education bureaucracies to ensure claims are paid in a timely and accurate manner.

    Tami Harris-Heritage School:Spiritual Life in a Therapeutic Boarding School

    in Family

    On December 4, 2014, Tami Harris explained their program to facilitate spiritual life in Heritage School in Utah, a secular Therapeutic Boarding School and Residential Treatment Center for adolescents.  Tami is the school's Director of Spiritual Care and their Chaplain.  In this interview she describes her mission to give all students the opportunity to grow in their spiritual life in addition to the emotional growth and therapeutic healing which is the overall mission of Heritage School.  Participation is not required, but most of the students decide on their own to either practice their own religion they were raised in, or to sample other practices of religions they are not familiar with.  The goal is to make sure this spiritual and religious opportunity is available.  The latest addition is the first Kosher Kitchen in a RTC in the country for their Jewish students.  This joins the regular Catholic Mass on campus, various Protestant denominations services and non-denominational service opportunities that are spiritual in the sense of giving.

    Animal behavior through the lens of the Heart: an interview with Kevin Behan

    in Training

    join Willem Larsen & Garth for an exciting interview with Kevin Behan about animal behavior


    Kevin Behans website https://naturaldogtraining.com 


    Kevin grew up training dogs alongside his father, John Behan , one of the Nation’s first professional, family dog trainers. Kevin developed the Natural Dog Training theory after noticing the similarities between how well behaved and orchestrated wolves hunt in a group and the cooperation required in high drive police dog work. Kevin has worked with thousands of dogs throughout his long career, operating his own boarding and training kennel in Connecticut as well as advanced training for security, protection training and police dog work for K9 units and hospital security.
