In our continued special October series; "Zambia the Next 50 years" we feature an organization called Education Outreach for Children with Disabilities (EdOCD) a non profit organization that aims at assisting children with disabilities in in rural areas to access education. EdOCD endeavors to curb this challenge with help from communities to mitigate challenges faced by children with disabilities in accessing education through advocacy and by providing social development programs and services at community and national level. The founding members and leadership Team at Education Outreach for Children with Disabilities join us to discuss the role and future of their organization in the nation's education process towards children with disabilities in rural area.
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.

Have you thought about why humans own puppies? Have you thought about why people have children? What is the purpose of life, anyway? What is puppy love? What is friendship love, what is romantic-love? How do you get the feelings associated with love. What is love? Where does love come from?
Do you long for the peace that is associated with a lasting loving relationship? Do you yearn for more than a dry kiss? Do you want a big smack on your lips when you get home from work? Not a kiss from the puppy, but, from a human being who cares about what you do to be of value? Well, let's talk about love today!
Come join us the first Tuesday 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.
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?
Ask Dr. Applewhite (Host, Counselor. Educator and Army Veteran), how Veterans with Disability can help others overcome the fear of asking for accommodations at school and work. Many students and employees hide their challenges to read, listen, and communicate until their performance is affected. Guests address asking for accommodations from Disabled Student Resources and Employee Assistance Programs. Hear Special Guest, Dr. Beverly Poellnitz, Educator, Entrepreneur, from Maricopa Community College and others, as they enlighten us on how cultural considerations must be given when discussing any issue of learning, mental health, and performance.

This show previously aired in 2014 as Ask Dr. Applewhite About Support for Learning Disabilities.
Children and adults with intellectual or developmental disability may not be able to always tell you that they are experiencing pain, but it’s our responsibility to understand there are many reasons that people with ID/DD are experiencing pain. In this episode of Pain Waves Radio by Pain BC, Dr. Beverley Temple discusses how we can improve the quality of life of those with ID/DD by addressing the issue of chronic pain.
Dr. Temple is an Associate Professor with the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Health Sciences, College of Nursing and a Researcher with the St. Amant Research Centre. Her research focuses on support of people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and Autism and their families.
