What does a “healthy attitude” look like? Professor Applewhite, host, and Nazim Rashid, co-host of the Student2Teacher2Student© , Internet radio show, ask their listeners to define what they call a “healthy attitude”. We encourage listeners to call in, share their views about what a “healthy attitude” looks like, and listen to strategies to develop this way of life. It is critical that our attitude about being “healthy” is accepted in the culture and society we live in. At White Apple Institute, our focus is on setting “realistic” goals with a healthy attitude that must be maintained for success in the classroom and the workplace. Adult learners diagnosed with a mental or physical disability does not necessarily mean they are “unhealthy” or do not possess a healthy attitude. More often than we may expect, a person with a disability may lead a very successful life and maintain an even healthier attitude about school, work, and life, than those who are not diagnosed with a disability. The initial screening and assessment at White Apple Institute helps potential students and teachers clarify their purpose, abilities, and goals in a changing world. Teachers, as well as students, deal with “burn out” issues that negatively affect their health and attitudes towards each other and the educational systems they work and learn in. We look forward to more feedback from employers, counselors, parents, and other interested listeners around the United States and abroad to improve our perspectives about being prepared for success in a global economy, diagnosed as “disabled”, or not!
