The DEAF/HOH are hungry to work and will be loyal employees and customersHave special discount days for them. Some cash flow in is better than none at allOffer Hearing Health as part of Your Wellness Programs.Most have not heard of Amended American Disabilities Act for 2008 and the general response I receive is oh let's included all the disabilities rather than just hearing loss. Well no matter what other disability you have listening will help determine your productivity, your peak performance at work, and your team collaboration. Listening is a skill that can be developed, but it is also dependent on your ear organs. If they are not working right long term and you have a hearing loss then it is classified as a disability. Yep, just own it and then look to the advantage of it.If your looking to hire one of the two point two million veterans that came back from the Middle East War. You not only get tax credit for hiring a vet, but also for hiring someone with a disability.You get preferred seating when going to events. You do have to ask for it in advance or need to come early.Get pre boarding privileges when flying or any other type of public transportation. Alaskan Airline was given a demo about Live Transcribe on the way to Maui. On the way back they used this app on a mobile phone to let me read that they knew I had a hearing loss and they would come get me if there was an emergency and let me read what would I like to drink. It was beyond marvelous. Not having to struggle with wondering what the announcements for my section for boarding was and having to mull thru a crowd. I wore my Has Hearing Loss Decal, so the other passengers would see that I have this disability.I ask servers, retail, and business associates to speak into the Live Transcribe app as it makes my life easierYou can go to the Rose Bowl Parade for Free, Just have to apply early.Title I requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others Some sources do say 25 employees.Let's make it a positive change as we have all been through enough lately as in the last three years. Helping Businesses to Grown and People to Thrive with hearing loss and other disabilities.As a manager or a decision maker in business I'd love for you to even take the Hearing Loss Equality and Inclusion Training Online Course. That will give you an edge to move pass the bias around hearing loss and give your 20
% hiding out on your team the ability to seek out the help they need to improve your customer service, team collaboration, retention, and over all health of each of your valuable colleagues.So long for now.

The school system is not always going to be working FOR your child, in fact, as my guest shares, your child's school might cut corners and not tell you. You have rights as parents but you might not even know what they are! We all need someone in our corner like attorney, Catherine Michael, who's my guest on this episode. She helps parents through school issues where their child has been injured, disciplined and/or have special needs that aren't being met at the school level. Catherine shares jaw dropping information that every parent needs to know about how the “system” works and that it's PARENTS who need to enforce the laws for their children because left unchecked, there is no penalty for schools if they don't follow the rules and regulations they are supposed to. WE need to hold them accountable. The problem is that most parents don't know where to start or what questions to ask if they're in a position where their child is being mistreated, left behind, or not being given the support they need. Parents are scared to hold schools accountable for fear the school will take it out on their child. It feels like an impossible position when your child is struggling in school. I wish I knew this information sooner; I know you will feel the same way. Please share this episode with anyone who needs to hear it too. **For Catherine's guide on Parent Advocacy, you can download it from the Parent Toolbox. www.parent-toolbox.com** About Catherine M. Michael Catherine M. Michael is an attorney who practices throughout the state of Indiana, Texas, and Michigan. She also is an educational consultant and parenting coach. She represents students and their families in a variety of education and personal injury matters including Special Education Due Process, Section 504 matters, expulsion, disciplinary issues, personal injury of children including injury, sexual abuse, molestation, and rape cases both in and out of school environments, private school issues and discipline as well as other civil rights and disability claims experienced by students.

Chris & Kelsey get back-alley plastic surgery and second families. Look, it's all very confusing. The Classic Film: Stepfather 3: Father's Day (1992) "That psycho stepfather has escaped from the insane asylum and had his face surgically altered. Now he's married again, this time to a woman with a child in a wheelchair. He goes on a killing spree once again” (IMDb.com). It's Stepfather again, only cringier and even more prudish, and this time we don't even get Terry O'Quinn. It's the epitome of the unnecessary sequel. The Modern Film: The Wailing (2016) "Soon after a stranger arrives in a little village, a mysterious sickness starts spreading. A policeman, drawn into the incident, is forced to solve the mystery in order to save his daughter” (IMDb.com). The Wailing is a beautiful and very well-made but entirely too long movie with, ultimately, not a lot to say of substance about its subjects of choice.

Even before the pandemic, roughly one in four Americans were living with a disability. And while people with disabilities are more likely overall to experience financial difficulties…that is particularly true for people of color with disabilities.

Welcome to Pediatric Meltdown, the podcast for busy pediatricians who want to better understand children's emotional health and behaviors and gain the skills and knowledge to help them thrive. I am your host, Lia Gaggino. In this episode, we are joined by Katherine Steingass, MD. Dr. Steingass is a Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician at Nationwide Children's Hospital and an assistant professor of Pediatrics at the Ohio State University College of Medicine. She is a member of the complex health care team and the medical director for the Spinal Bifida Program, as well as the Program Director for the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship; her primary clinical interests include evaluation and care of children with developmental delays and disabilities, including cerebral palsy, myelomeningocele genetic conditions, autism and the sequelae of prematurity.   She is a co-chair for the early childhood Special interest group in the Society for Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics and is involved in the AAPS Council on Children with Disabilities. Dr. Steingass received her medical degree from the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo and completed her Residency at Nationwide Children's Hospital, followed by a Fellowship in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. Join us today as we talk about Children with Disabilities:  Don't Forget Their Emotional Well-being! Key Highlights: [00:01 - 22:13] Kids with Disabilities Often Miss Out on Mental Health Screening There is a significant body of literature suggesting that children with disabilities experience higher rates of mental health symptoms, including ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Developmental screening is essential for identifying kids who may be at risk for these conditions. Qualitative questioning can provide valuable information about a child's overall well-being It is essential to balance the need to assess a child's medical conditions with the need to determine their behavioral health.        Should we be rethinking our perspective on medications for kids with autism? Behavioral interventions should be tailored to the child's individual needs with autism.  Physical symptoms and medical causes should be investigated to determine the cause of aggression in children with autism. Constipation is a common culprit in the development of aggressive behaviors in children with autism. There are identifiable triggers for a head banging, and it can be helpful to look at the behavior in terms of its function. It is vital to consider the child's symptoms and history and their environment.       It is common for children with autism to have comorbid mental health disorders. Medication options for aggression can vary depending on the child's symptoms. [22:14 - 37:41] We Have to be Mindful of the Families, the Parents, and Siblings When Approaching Care for Kids with Chronic Medical Conditions There is a lot of investigative work that needs to be done before starting a medication like this, as it has potential side effects.         One way to help families during this difficult time is to normalize the experience and ask open-ended questions about their well-being. When talking with families of kids with chronic medical conditions, it is crucial to also focus on their function and quality of life.       Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics: Tips for Clinicians The importance of adapting to the environment to promote mental health for children with disabilities. The role of a Developmental-Behavioral pediatrician in this process emphasizes the importance of detective work to identify and address underlying issues.  Clinicians should ask parents and children about their goals and plans for the future and their current experiences and feelings.

Since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990, the number of students with disabilities entering postsecondary institutions has increased significantly (United States Government Accountability Office, 2009). Despite the fact that these students comprised roughly 11% of the post-secondary population in 2007-2008 (National Center for Education Statistics, 2012), higher education research has largely ignored students with disabilities.

There is not even a mention of housing in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). For many people with disabilities in this province, the search for housing is as challenging as the lack of options.

Ep. 83: What Students with Disabilities Should Do When Starting College with Eric Endlich, Ph.D

In this informative episode, we take a look at college for students with disabilities. Oftentimes, we focus our energy on children with learning differences when they are young, but what happens when students reach young adulthood and express a desire to attend college? Are they ready? What does ready mean?  Dr. Eric Endlich is today's guest and he offers key strategies and mindsets that can help set students up for success. He has said that students with disabilities may have tremendous potential as well as exceptional needs but to fulfill that potential in college, they need to be sufficiently prepared. Dr. Endlich also shares that it is never too early and it is never too late to start working on skills that prepare students for higher education.   Show Notes: [2:42] - We spend a lot of time ensuring that students get the support they need when they are young, but there comes a time when students may want to go to college and lack preparation. [4:01] - Dr. Endlich helps students find colleges that meet their needs and also helps college-bound students complete the application process. [5:35] - There are a lot of things that Dr. Endlich looks at regarding skills that ensure independence. [6:56] - Individuals with the same diagnosis have different needs and the college selection process is very important. [8:14] - Graduation rates are lower for students with learning differences. [9:16] - It is important to not only consider the colleges that students can get into, but also colleges where students can be successful and finish their program. [10:02] - Parents and students should not wait until senior year in high school to ask questions and should consider what things their child can do independently. [12:25] - Academic coaching is available at some colleges. [13:34] - When should you begin working on skills needed for independence? Dr. Endlich says it is never too early and never too late. [15:04] - Executive functioning and adaptive living skills are things that can be asked about. There may be support available. [16:30] - Community colleges are excellent at providing study and financial skills courses and many school districts offer dual enrollment with community colleges. [18:32] - Self-awareness comes first. Students need to know what they are good at and what their deficits are. [20:21] - If they have self-awareness and can then self-advocate, students are on their way to success. [21:48] - In most colleges, it is up to the student to approach the professors with their list of accommodations. [23:21] - In many cases, students have not yet had to solve their own problems. [25:44] - Dr. Endlich was involved with a film called Autism Goes to College and describes some of his students on the panel. [27:55] - Obsessions or special interests seen in autism may lead to a career. [29:27] - It is so important for students to find their community. If they get into a college and are unable to make friends there, they will often want to leave.   About Our Guest: Eric Endlich, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and founder of Top College Consultants®, helps neurodivergent students transition to college. Dr. Endlich is on the Learning Differences/Neurodiversity Committee and Diversity/Equity/Inclusion Committee of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, and has been awarded the "Making a Difference" award by the IECA.
