    in Sports

    1/24/2016 6:00 pm Pacific Time


    Martial Arts is a wonderful extracurricular activity for those with special needs, especially kids with Autism or other sensory-processing issues. The repetition, the familiar curriculum, the familiar faces at each class....each aspect of martial arts allows those with special needs to shine and participate on par with classmates.


    Join Restita and Bob as they talk about martial arts for special needs....specifically the Autism Spectrum, and we want to hear from parents with kids that have sensory processing difficulties, teachers/paraeducators, therapists, and most of all, we want to hear from martial arts instructors who offer classes or programs for special needs kids.

It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST.

    Reclaim Your Health: Self-Care for Parents of Children with Special Needs

    in Self Help

    Join us as Rose-Anne Partridge shares about the importance and the how-tos of self-care for parents of children with special needs.


    As a mother of a 15-year-old with special needs, Rose-Anne understood that she didn't have all the answers. 


    One of the biggest problems facing families who have children with special needs is self-care. Who is taking care of the caregiver? We tend to put all our energy and efforts into helping our children, and in the long run, we find ourselves exhausted and burned out. 


    Rose-Anne believes those answers need to come from the individual and from the families and our communities. And she believes that as families who have children with special needs, we need to come together to help each other reach those goals and create those innovative ideas.


    Let’s come together and continue to have HOPE!


    About The Hosts:
