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?

The Empowerment Zone’s disability round tables Mission is to boldly encourage and motivate people with disabilities to reach out and learn how to live life as independently as possible, while learning about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and us working to change society’s views of people disabilities along the way and that means all of us everywhere getting involved!
Tonight we want to discuss what we as persons with disability can do together to build stronger empowerment zones all over USA and around the world to help build a brighter and bolder future for people with disabilities to take charge of their destinies and live a self-directed meaningful life and that means inclusion in life and every way. So join us in a discussion on The Empowerment Zones Disability Round Table!
My name is Les Paul Morgan. I work for Center for Independent Living, which strives to help people disabilities feel inclusion in their lives in every way. There is a Center for Independent Living in all 50 states and US territories and beyond! The four main core services of an independent living center are:
Advocacy, Information and Referral, Independent Living Skills, and Peer Support
The Empowerment Zone’s Mission statement is to boldly encourage and motivate people with disabilities reach out and learn how to live life as independently as possible, talk about the meaning and the purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and work to change society’s views of people disabilities along the way and that means all of us everywhere getting involved!
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.
In this episode we explore some of the perceptions of individuals with disabilities. Our guest, Mary Jacob is the Executive Director of Louisiana Parent Training and Information Center and Families Helping Families of Jefferson. She is the mother of two daughters with disabilities and spent the past 25 years advocating for inclusive education opportunities and services for her daughters as well as all children with disabilities. Ms. Jacob has spoken nationally about her experience raising two children with disabilities. She is a relentless advocate for children with special needs.
