    Almost Autism: Author, Speaker, and Practitioner Maria Rickert Hong

    in Psychology

    Our newest guest was researched and found by our Mental Health News Radio co-host Melanie Vann. This is a subject near and dear to her heart so it was important to interview one of the leading experts on Sensory Processing Disorder. Autism, and ADHD.  Read the full BLOG article HERE.

    Maria Rickert Hong is an author, speaker, and practitioner working with parents and children all over the United States. Through her own experiences as a parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, Maria discusses her journey aiding her family to wellness.

    With personal stories as well as examples of her work with parents and children, she answers our pointed questions, offers guidance, and hope.

    What is Sensory Processing Disorder? Why do you call it “Almost Autism”?

    How did you become a health coach that helps parents recover their kids from neurodevelopmental disorders such as Sensory Processing Disorder, almost autism, autism and ADHD?

    Tell us about your book “Almost Autism: Recovering Children from Sensory Processing Disorder, A Reference for Parents and Practitioners”.

    Why does my child with a neurodevelopmental disorder also have allergies, asthma, constipation or diarrhea, dark circles under his eyes, acid reflux, anxiety and/or red cheeks or ears after eating?

    Why don’t most parents and practitioners know that recovery is possible from these disorders?

    What about genetics – isn’t Autism Speaks looking for the genetic cause of autism?

    Aren’t there more kids with autism just because doctors are diagnosing it more?

    How do I go about recovering my child?

  • #271 Ideas to Try When a Toddler HATES Toys

    in Parents

    Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com as she discusses ideas for a 3 year old client with autism who does not play with toys. We'll discuss the factors that contribute to and created this issue and the treatment strategies we've used to help him move toward playing with toys and more importantly, tie those activities to our long term goal for him, which is to communicate. 

    When I first started talking with his parents about play, their conclusion was: He doesn't like toys. That may be true, but it's not the REAL reason he's not playing. The truth is, he doesn't know how to play with toys. When any of us don't know how to do something, the likelihood that we will actually do it declines greatly. In the show, we'll talk about the steps we implemented to target play with toys, as well as his other needs.

  • Facebook firestorm: When kids being kids isn't about the kids TW:rape

    in Religion

    TW:  rape.  This show will discuss rape culture and other sensitive topics.

    This past week, I posted a video I found from a friend of the show's wall.  The video is of a couple of toddlers.  One acts inappropriately, but the tag from the original post and the music editied into the clip suggest the people who originally posted it thought it was cute and adorable.  I did not.

    The comment section was incredible. Most agreed that the child behaved badly, and wondered why there was no parental interaction.  But there were a few that thought my post and comments were over the top and outrageous.

    I'm going to talk about the video, the reactions it got, the comments on the post and why this is important.

    Did you see the post?  You can call and give me your impression.

    All the awesomeness will be here.

    Rita Graham’s career as a jazz vocalist was jump-started when Ray Charles produced an album of lush standards for her in 1969. The album, Rita Graham Vibrations is the only major project that Ray Charles produced for a female artist on his label Tangerine Records (TRC-1507). As the lead vocalist in Rita and the Tiaras, Ms. Graham recorded the UK Northern Soul Classic, Gone with the Wind is My Love (Rita and the Tiaras). A stint as one of Ray Charles’ Raelettes was followed by a two-year featured spot with the Harry James Orchestra, on European and Far East tours, and a series of recordings produced by TV composer Mike Post. Rita was featured with jazz great Oscar Peterson, Mercer Ellington and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and comedian Redd Foxx.  She originated the role of Coretta Scott King in Woodie King Jr.’s production of the Martin Luther King, Jr. documusical, Selma, off-Broadway.
