Eye opening reminder to parents

By locdocDave - Aug 20 2017
Read more

Parents have a lot of authority and decision making power regarding their minor children. Sometimes we get caught up in the status quo of established systems, rules, and practices. Sometimes we just buy into "the way things are", and simply go along with what teachers and principals tell us, unless we are faced with overwhelming evidence that different decisions are in the best interest of our children. Emmalou reminds us that we must become involved, concerned, and take the actions that are in the best interest of those who rely upon our actions as they develop into the best adults they may become. Great episode.

Rank #7: The Elephant in the Room

Podcast cover
Read more

If there is no consistency in parenting, children with special needs will not be getting the structure they need.  They will not have the safe environment that allows them to learn coping skills to regulate their emotions.  They need consistent support to develop their executive functioning skills. The resulting chaos is threatening for them and increases meltdowns.

Rank #15: I wrote a book!

Podcast cover
Read more

It has been said that the best teacher will show you where to look, but not tell you what to see.  It is my goal with this book to share what I have learned through experience in my years as a parent and professional educator as well as through study and research and allow you, as the reader, to determine what is best for your child.  The expression, “It takes a village to raise a child.” has been overused and I can’t totally agree with it.  It would be more appropriate to say it takes a village to support the parents so they can raise their child.
