    Every human being is born with unique abilities and talents. It takes a special kind of love and skill to recognize these abilities in our children with special needs. We too often dismiss those who learn differently as "handicapped" when in fact they are gallantly overcoming challenges as they develop into magnificent human beings.

    The New Heights Show on Education with Host Charlotte McGuire

    in Education

    Topic:  “Common Core Science Standards Questioned”

     "Charlotte will share truths, and dispel myths about Common Core.  So families can come together in knowledge, action, and voices for education."  Common Core is a set of national academic standards for designated subjects, currently, Mathematics and English Language Arts/literacy (ELA).  These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade throughout their K-12 education. The standards were created to ensure all students graduate from high school with knowledge and skills to be college and career ready. This episode will focus on one perspective and its background and premises for the development of Common Core national standards.

    Our Mission:

    The New Heights Educational Group Inc. supports literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services.  Such services include assisting families in their selection of schools, organization of educational activities, and acquisition of materials.  We promote a healthy learning environment and offer enrichment programs for families of preschool and school age children, including children with special needs.

    Shaping Special Hearts: Mental Health & the Church

    in Religion

    Join us for our next show! May 19, 2015 at 12:00p.m. ET

    Join host Vangie Rodenbeck as she interviews Dr. Stephen Grcevich on Mental Health & the Church. This show highlights ministry to children with special needs and seeks to resource, encourage, and empower those who minister to them.

    Dr. Stephen Grcevich serves as Director of Strategic Initiatives and Medical Director of Key Ministry, a non-profit organization providing free training, consultation, resources, and support to help churches serve families of children with disabilities. He is a faculty member in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at two medical schools, leads a group practice in suburban Cleveland, and continues to be involved in research evaluating the safety and effectiveness of medications prescribed to children for ADHD, anxiety and depression. Dr. Grcevich is a past recipient of the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and was recently recognized by Sharecare as one of the top ten online influencers in children’s mental health.

    Vangie began her journey in special needs advocacy when her son, Noah, was diagnosed with autism at age four; the same year she also began full-time ministry to children. Through efforts to create a place where her son could learn about God, special needs advocacy and ministry became one and the same. Vangie has a B.S. in Christian Ministry and an M.A. in Contemporary Theology. Her thesis project, “Disability and the Image of God,” continued her desire to meld theology, practical ministry, and disability advocacy. She also serves as Executive Director of PURE Ministries. Vangie lives and ministers in Meridian, Idaho.
