Adults with intellectual or other developmental disabilities face a cascade of health disparities including, complex or difficult-to-treat medical conditions, difficulty accessing health care or expressing their symptoms and pain, or they may receive inadequate health care and receive little attention to wellness, preventive care, and health promotion.
The IDD Toolkit website is a resource for health care providers, individuals with disabilities, their families and support staff, to help lead to improvements in the health of adults with IDD across the nation.
Janet Shouse is the program coordinator for the Developmental Disabilities Health Care E-Toolkit at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center. She is also the parent of three young adults, including one with autism. She has served with various disability-related organizations, including Autism Tennessee, the Disability Coalition on Education and the Tennessee Autism Summit Team.
Join The Arc of Luzerne County, host of PA Independent Living Radio Show, for an in-depth conversation with Janet - about the IDD Toolkit, its origins, and the difference it's making in healthcare for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the country. We'll also talk about her extensive career in service to the disability community and personal experiences as a mother of a son with autism.

Bob McGrath, a Teaneck songwriter and actor who appeared on Sesame Street for more than 40 years and who was recently named a Bergen County “Legend” will be our guest on Record Talk Radio at 10 a.m. Friday.
Record Reporter Lindy Washburn also will be on the broadcast to talk about her recent three-part series on the sweeping changes that have resulted to health care in New Jersey as private-for-profit companies acquire local struggling non-profit hospitals.
McGrath was one of ten people – ranging from Indian Chief Oratam to the late actor James Gandolfini – who were named by the Bergen County Historical Society as their first group of Bergen County legends. The society plans to honor them during an Oct. 15 fund-raiser in Garfield.

Orange County Florida Primary Election Recap with Tezlyn Figaro & Randy Ross
LanceScurv speaks on the blatant gentrification that is happening right now as we speak in the predominantly Black Parramore area of Orlando Florida.

LanceScurv speaks on what must be done at this crucial time!
