Episode 83. “… those lies early on really informed a whole lifetime of shielding myself that really was unnecessary because we have unlimited capabilities that are never tapped if we just give every individual the opportunity to attempt them and strive, and see what they are capable of and take the limitations away from them.”Judy Schwingel's story includes seizures due to epilepsy as a child and later in grade school, a diagnosis of dyslexia and a visual perception disorder. Judy experienced many societal biases, stigmas, and negative medical opinions that believed she was incapable of learning or overcoming her disabilities. These experiences, challenges, and the heroes in her life instilled in her a strong will to overcome and do anything she chooses. “If I can Imagine it, it can be done”, became Judy's mantra in life.After many years working as a nurse, Judy felt drawn and Spiritually called to return to what she knows as her true God-given talents as a spiritual, nurturing, healing soul.As a Faith-based Master Transformational Life Coach,  Judy focuses on working with people in life-changing transitions struggling with what direction to take. She helps them light their divine Spirit's Power, and cultivate confidence, toward finding life's purpose, so they can set a new course in life.For more information about Judy and to contact her, visit: https://www.heartnsoulhlc.com What came up for you as a result of this conversation?  Let Linda know by going to Normal-Lies.com and leave a review.  Linda reads every one and every month, she chooses one review to read on air.  Who knows, she may choose yours!If you have a question or a topic you'd like addressed on an upcoming episode, go to Normal-Lies.com and click the contact page to send Linda a message.

Luckily, she was diagnosed with learning differences and got lots of needed support. But that didn't stop kids and others from treating her as dumb, and she internalized that identity. And, ambition didn't let her stop chasing her dreams. Hear how Michelle learned how to compensate with a disability. Find out how she moved away from believing she was equivalent to how she was perceived and treated to land in a place of self-love and acceptance. What were the needle movers? And, how does she deal with not being the person she might have been, if she didn't have this condition? Guest Bio Michelle Steiner lives with an invisible disability.

Today on the Brain Beat podcast, Dr. Cheryl Silver takes over the mic. As a pediatric neuropsychologist for the past 40 years, she's had the opportunity to evaluate children, adolescents, and young adults with learning disabilities throughout the state of Texas. After graduating from college in 1973 and getting her Phd some years later, Dr. Silver found a deep curiosity in the brains and behaviors of children who struggled to read and do math. So today, with much experience under her belt, she walks us through the signs of learning disabilities in early childhood, what a learning disability actually is, and, perhaps even more importantly, what it isn't. There's a lot more to learning disabilities than just a diagnosis, and Dr. Silver knows that; it's tedious work to get the care you need for your children, especially when insurance companies don't consider private evaluations as medical care. With that said, she provides advice on accessible treatment and accommodations for those with specific disabilities and lauds the brain for its adaptability and resilience. So join Dr. Silver for this incredibly informative episode of Brain Beat and continue to learn about the immense intricacies of the brain that can impact our learning.The Finer Details of This Episode: What is a learning disabilityEarly signs of learning disabilitiesLegal definitions of disabilitiesGetting a diagnosisTreatment and accommodations The brain's resilience Quotes: “A learning disability is usually thought of as a specific problem in learning; you might say a narrow problem in learning in a person who otherwise has good intelligence.”“It sounds pretty specific, and that it should stand out to parents among other areas where the child seems to be developing normally and otherwise competent.”“Learning disabilities happen, as I said, as a result of differences in the way the brain develops and the way that certain parts of the brain work.”“I would say we know less about math disabilities than we know about reading disabilities.”“One thing I tell parents that they need to know is insurance companies often will not pay for that kind of private evaluation. The insurance companies say we cover medical problems, and learning to read and learning to do math and learning to spell are not medical reasons.”​”The parents need to get a written report, and the evaluator needs to know how to define the problem so that it meets the qualifications for considering it to be a learning disability.”“So that really speaks then to the resilience and the need for the kinds of supports, interventions, and accommodations that you're describing throughout childhood so that kids can maintain that resilience and figure those pathways out for themselves, so that they are able to be successful, perhaps even in spite of something that may affect them– potentially lifelong.”“ADHD is a disorder that can affect learning in a major way, but not because of these brain differences that create problems with written language or numbers, but it's a pervasive condition that affects a child's ability to pay attention.”Links: National Academy of Neuropsychology Foundation websiteDr. Cheryl Silver Profile

Covid has impacted our kids' education on many levels including learning delays and learning losses.  Although statistics show learning loss across all ages and grades,  graduation rates have stayed stable.  Unfortunately, that means that many high school students are likely graduating with academic deficits.  As a result, those who transition to college are beginning classes at a disadvantage, and students with disabilities who are compounded by learning deficits are even more at risk.  Today I share some strategies that could help mitigate those challenges. I have links to a couple of resources that might help parents and teachers support their students.  You will also get links to some helpful episodes and articles.  How Has the Pandemic Affected Students with Disabilities?

We all want our children to be able to reach their potential. Along with a connected relationship, many, many children have neuro-diverse needs that affect their daily learning. When your child is identified with a learning difference, the question of evaluating may be raised. What then? As scary as it can be to get a diagnosis for your child, what's best for the long-haul development is awareness of strengths and weaknesses so success is assured. Educational consultant, Shannon MacNamara, helps parents understand and implement evaluations of their child's specific differences so the child finds the best fit for their capabilities. Shannon helps answer all your questions about finding an evaluator, the benefits of an evaluation, and what she can add to the process to help find ways for your child to shine alongside any challenges. Shannon can be found at: Curiouskidseducational.comAnd contacted personally at:shannon@curiouskidseducational.comBonnie Harris, MS.Ed., director of Connective Parenting, 30+ years of coaching, teaching, and writing for parents. https://linktr.ee/bonnieharrisparentingWebsite: bonnieharris.com Email: bh@bonnieharris.comProduced, mixed, and scored by Echo Finch www.echofinch.com

This edWeb podcast is sponsored by Digital Promise.The webinar recording can be accessed here.The intersection of race and learning disabilities presents school-imposed barriers and roadblocks for students of color. These roadblocks include misidentification, incorrect placement, and severe and inappropriate discipline measures. In one study, for example, Black students from non-low-income backgrounds had about twice the likelihood of being identified with intellectual disabilities or emotional disturbances compared to White students from non-low-income backgrounds. The NCLD report also cited research that found, “Black students, for example, are three times more likely than White students to be suspended or expelled,” with one study concluding that this disparity is at least partially due to internalized racial stereotypes held by teachers. In this edWeb podcast, we learn what the research says about the intersection of disability and race, what schools can do to more appropriately determine a student's disability given racial and cultural uniqueness, and strategies for individual teachers to keep expectations high and ensure that students receive appropriate supports so they can meet their potential.

Ep. 101: How Parent Education and Perseverance Made the Difference with Raja Marhaba

Diverse Thinking Different Learning

Today's guest is a force in the special education space and her journey began as a parent of a special needs child. Raja Marhaba joins the conversation today to tell you about her traumatic experiences navigating the special education system and how her journey led her to create The Jonathan Foundation. The Jonathan Foundation for Children With Learning Disabilities is a non-profit organization that raises funds for parents who can't afford assessments for their children. In many unfortunate situations, a child's struggles go unnoticed, undiagnosed, and without support for too long and that wasted time impacts their education and their future. This conversation with Raja will put you in her shoes as a parent who has learned through the eyes of her own children. She hopes that, through the work she does with The Jonathan Foundation, fewer families will experience the challenges she faced and more families will get the support they need.   Show Notes: [1:50] - Welcome to the show, Raja! [3:15] - Raja's experience began 26 years ago and she has a parent's perspective. [5:27] - As a new mom, she didn't know how to navigate the special education process. But, she knew her child better than anyone and she learned to be her child's best advocate. [7:16] - At the time, Raja found that not every piece of information was given to her. [8:15] - Raja realized that not everything that was suggested was happening at school to help her son, Jonathan. [9:57] - Raja describes the journey of learning her son has dyslexia. [11:37] - He lost a lot of confidence, but acting classes helped to build it back up. [12:42] - Raja had a lot of questions and lost faith in the school system. [14:54] - This experience set Raja on a new path. She knew she needed to fight and advocate for her children. She sees this as a turning point in her life. [16:35] - Back then, there was no Google. Raja's resources for information were limited, but many of the same problems exist today. [19:38] - This process and the lack of understanding leads to wasted time. [20:53] - Because a psychologist took the time to explain and answer her questions, Raja understood the data from assessments. [21:57] - The assessments could cost a family up to $15,000. [23:55] - It is important for parents to have a professional in their corner. Raja describes some situations where advocacy was crucial. [25:57] - Raja focused on assessments with The Jonathan Foundation because of her experience with the huge cost of assessments for her sons. [27:23] - This experience hurt her family and her own mental health. [28:20] - Raja describes what she learned about her children and what she learned from them. [30:11] - Understanding her children opened up the world for her. [32:05] - Having one child who took so much of her attention, Raja's youngest son was impacted. [34:51] - The sooner the better when it comes to an assessment. [36:29] - If you feel that your child is struggling and the school has said that their  evaluation revealed no difficulties, you can request another assessment. [39:02] - The data from an assessment tells a story. [40:41] - Donations can be made to the Jonathan Foundation to help children and families without the funds to afford a quality assessment. [43:29] - Sometimes schools are missing a piece to the puzzle without an assessment. [44:27] - Raja is currently writing a book and she provides a sneak peek. [49:57] - Raja's book will connect you with her story; she hopes that others can learn from her experience.   About Our Guest: Raja B. Marhaba is the Founder and President of The Jonathan Foundation for Children with Learning Disabilities, Inc. The motivation for establishing The Jonathan Foundation was driven by her personal struggles with having two children with disabilities and the multiple battles she endured to obtain appropriate special education and related services from their school district over a period of eight years. The result: eight due process complaint filings, including a hearing; an appeal to the Federal Ninth Circuit District Court; as well as periods of extreme financial hardship from the cost of paying for private assessments, specialized interventions, and placements, retaining legal representation, and witness fees. Thus, Raja envisioned The Jonathan Foundation to be the vehicle she would use to assist families, like her own, in dealing with a "broken" special education system, "one child at a time". Since its inception in 2001, The Jonathan Foundation has provided families of children and adolescents with various types of disabilities with information, resources, referrals, and direct advocacy services by Raja in both special education and regional center matters.   Connect with Raja Marhaba: The Jonathan Foundation Website Apply for an Assessment Scholarship   Links and Related Resources: Episode 1: Demystifying the Assessment Process How to Initiate a Special Education Assessment Episode 14: Pursuing and Pushing for a Special Education Assessment with Educational Attorney Leejanice Toback What is a Comprehensive Evaluation and How Can It Help Support My Child's Learning?
