I have a child with a developmental disability.. where will they live without me?
Rachael has worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for approximately 7 years. Most recently, she was an Assistant Manager for The Center for Disability Services for a group home with 7 adults. Rachael is currently a full time MSW student at SUNY Albany.
When a family has a child with a developmental disability, their future is often uncertain. Individuals with developmental disabilities are often somewhat, if not completely, dependent on their caretakers. Group homes are often an option for families to consider as their child continues to grow and parents become older and less able to care for their child.
Psychologists would say that our earliest and most lasting influences come from our families and caretakers. If we are fortunate to be raised by loving and attentive people, we internalize values and develop the capacity for connection and intimate attachments, and we construct psychological defenses to provide just the right amount of protection against negative outside influences.
In adolescence we are very much influenced by our peers. Everyone wants to be a part of the “in-group,” accepted and admired. Looking back, which group did you aspire to - the jocks, the greasers, the stompers, prom queens, homemakers, nerds, motorcycle molls, prepies? And how long did it take to get over their influence? Or have you?
On one of the intelligence assessments for children there’s a question about staying away from “bad” people. The correct answers suggest that even at an early age we can know that some people might have a hurtful influence on us and others a positive influence. As we mature, our self-esteem dictates that we choose friends and mentors who influence us to be our most expressive, creative and loving. And of course, conscious choice becomes more possible in adulthood. Choice then is the key word.
I would say that the spiritual connection should be the most prominent influence in my life.

Who among us hasn't gained a couple of pounds here or there in the midst of our daily lives not taking time to figure out why it's happening? The holidays are upon us and for some, the merriment of the holiday doesn't reach us and we're depressed. It may be the loss of a loved one or the loss of our stability often found in our employment or relationships. These everyday occurrences are a source of our stress and many times our knee-jerk reaction is to find comfort in food.

This is a male survivor of abuse (disabled, autistic himself, a stroke survivor, on oxygen) with an austic child (who is also diagnosed with dysgraphia, gastrointestinal issues, and a mood disorder). The abuse stems from partner abuse of 10 years, abuse from caregivers and teachers.
In Arizonia, he struggles with CPS issues as well.
He wants others to know that: "This boy deserves not to be abused ever again. Not by his mother, not by teachers or caretakers, no-one!"
This is a story of dispair and frustration and the hopes/dreams he may have for the future of he and his son.

THIS WEEK: Caretakers vs Caregivers, What do you CARE?, Is there a difference between caretaking and caregiving? Although many people interchange these two words, it is imperative that we understand how they are not the same. Remember, the words we use in thought and speech, creates the realities that we see. While "care" is the same in both words, it's the 'give' and 'take' that significantly impacts how care is provided. One crosses boundaries while the other creates new ones. One is judgmental and the other is nonjudgemental. One "fixes" the problem while the other creates solutions. Tonight, Kevin will share his experiences of having people in his life who took on one or the other role during his journey, particularly after acquiring his brain injury. Kevin will examine these roles as he points out the key differences between caretaking and caregiving. While it is true that "One person caring about another represent's life's greatest value," (Jim Rohn) it is the presentation of caring that makes the difference in creating a FUNctional life. Call in @424.243.9549 or join us online http://www.
If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)
Terry Basile will join me to will offer strategies for healthy communication between adults and young children. Just as important as the food they choose to nurture their bodies is the emotional food we give them to express their feelings. It is vital to a child’s emotional growth that adult caretakers teach how to share feelings in a healthy way and respond appropriately. Tantrums are not pretty on a young child but are disastrous on a teen. Your audience will learn how to use the strategies of her book Let’s Color Your Feelings! to engage children early and create a safe language of feelings in their family!
As women we are told, both directly and indirectly, that stirring up our passions and feeding our desires is wrong. We are the caretakers and the nurturers. We are the compassionate guardians and the devoted mothers.
We are all those things, but we are also the lover and the fighter. We are also the driven professional and the passionate creative. We are the open heart, the courageous hero and the powerful, soulful, divine light.
When we feed our fire by discovering and honoring our desires, there is a light within all of us that will shine brightly. Our embers will burn and we will be able to live with heart and with wholeness - open and authentic, vulnerable and strong.
