The joy of being a Parent is one you can not put a price tag on. Some people choose to be child-free but many look forward to carrying their own babies, rolling on the floor with them, doing the small things, big ones and everything between. Then, the reality of life sets in, in a totally different way when our angels are diagnosed with having a disability.
On this week's episode we will be speaking with two wonderful women - BEBE CLEMENT and VICTORIA LAWRENCE on RAISING CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES - both sharing their personal stories.
Touching on -
How do you get a diagnosis?
What can you do to help the child?
How does it affect the family dynamic?
How do siblings handle it?
Financial/ marital pressures?
What can family and friends do to help?
How do you keep yourself sane?

We talk with Sara Weir, Vice President of Advocacy and Affiliate Relations of the National Downs Syndrome Society about advocacy efforts to get support for the Able Act. She and Mark Friese, Vice President of Merrill Lynch Special Needs Group will explain what the Able Act is and how it can help ensure independence and dignity for people with disabilities through tax free savings accounts.
Babies who have had open-heart surgery, especially those with complex, congenital heart defects (CCHDs), are at much greater risk for brain injury or learning disabilities. Because of the heart defects themselves, and because of the complicated circulation involved with CCHDs, infants are more at risk for strokes. Infants who have had strokes often have brain injury due to stroke and those children with brain injuries caused in early childhood are more at risk for learning disabilities.
While this sounds very frightening, it doesn’t have to mean that your child’s quality of life will be greatly inferior to a child without a heart defect. Today’s show features a heart mom whose child had an anoxic brain injury (which is fairly uncommon), a pediatric cardiologist and pediatric neurologist from Boston Children’s Hospital, and a special education advocate. These expert Guests share information to help others navigate raising a child with a brain injury and/or learning disability.
