If a child is born with a disability or disorder the challenges can be great. Many parents are not aware of their rights, the law, or the best steps to take to make sure that their children get the best care for optimal development.
Today’s “Brains in Toyland” segment addresses steps parents should consider and resources they should know about if their child is born with a developmental challenge.
Our guests are education attorneys Eileen Libutti and Jennifer Frankola of Lewis Johs Avallone Aviles, LLP who are experts in family advocacy.
We hope this is informative.

Best, The KidsAtoZ Team.
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?

Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude
By Janet Lehman, MSW
We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, kids learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.
People wonder why kids have gotten so much more disrespectful these days—we see children and teens arguing with adults (or ignoring them outright), using foul language, copping an attitude, and not using manners or respecting those in authority. Sadly, this has become the norm for many children and teens. In my opinion, it really is a different world right now than the one we grew up in. Movies, music, video games and television all seem to glorify a disrespectful, angry, rude way of dealing with others. This means that in some ways we have to work harder as parents to teach our kids to be respectful. Added to this is the fact that parents are also busier than ever before, which makes it much harder to respond immediately to our kids. Let’s face it, it’s easier to let things slide when you’re worn out and stressed from working so hard.
Fatherlessness in the U.S. remains a prevalent issue as the number of children living apart from their biological fathers is estimated to be nearly 30 percent (or roughly one in three), according to 2011 Pew Research data.
The number of children living apart from their biological fathers has more than doubled over the last four decades amid a growing decline in nuclear families.
In 1960, 11 percent of children lived apart from their biological fathers as compared to 27 percent in 2010.
One Christian artist says he hopes his music will spark conversations about the growing problem and bring healing to families across the nation.
In August, acclaimed singer/songwriter Brian Nhira released his new single "Back Where You Belong" from his debut album Hope's Stand. The powerful track is described as an "anthem for the fatherless," and Nhira told The Christian Post about how a shopping trip to a local Walmart inspired the song.
"The song was inspired by an experience I had as a college student," Nhira, a graduate of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, told CP. "I went to this Walmart (across the street from campus) and one of the things the Lord was highlighting in my mind was these mothers who were there shopping with their kids and struggling to look after their kids and shop at the same time. And so the question arose in my mind 'Where is the father?'"
Come join us the first Tuesdday of each month as we explore together the many different gifts and abilities of these special children and adults. Have a better understanding of their importance in the world today and learn how we can help guide and support them throughout their lives.
Today's show will focus on praying for our children. We want to pray for their protection, their well being in and out of school, and their health. Our children are our future and we want to cover them in prayer in all things that they do, wherever they go and whomever they encounter. Let God be their shield. Amen!

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.
Have we done what we need to do to Save Our Children,or have we done nothing to reduce Gun Violence in our communities?
Elizabeth shares what is in it for all individuals when they open up to looking at the abilities over the disabilities. It will be the first of a series as she introduces her Platform for the Todays American Woman, and continues over the next month to help us understand what is really in it for everyone when we open our minds, hearts, and attitudes to looking at individuals from the ability stand point rather than the disabiity stand point.
