THE COFFEE KLATCH SPECIAL NEEDS TALK RADIO IS HONORED TO PRESENT
Wednesdays 9PME on The Coffee Klatch Special Needs Network
THE BRIGHT NOT BROKEN RADIO SHOW
GIFTED KIDS, ADHD, AND AUTISM: WHY TWICE-EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN ARE STUCK AND HOW TO HELP THEM
Hosted by Diane Kennedy and Rebecca Banks, authors of Bright Not Broken and The ADHD-Autism Connection with Dr Temple Grandin. Diane is the mother of three twice-exceptional sons who has spent over 18 years advocating for special needs children. Rebecca, a veteran educator who has spent nearly a decade teaching in inclusive classrooms, is the mother of two twice-exceptional children. Together, Diane and Rebecca will examine the issues around twice-exceptional children—that is, gifted kids with hidden disabilities such as ADHD, Asperger’s/autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, and related conditions. Their unique perspective and fresh approach will help parents, educators, and healthcare professionals understand who these kids are, why they’re stuck, and how to help them. In a time when the diagnostic system is in flux and education is under fire, this program will look unflinching at how proposed changes in these systems will affect twice-exceptional kids. The Bright Not Broken Radio Show will help listeners identify and maximize the talents of gifted kids with hidden disabilities.
Join us as we talk about twice-exceptional children with Drs. James Webb and Edward Amend, psychologists and experts on the social, emotional, and educational needs of gifted and talented youth.
‘Who They Are,’ ‘Why They’re Stuck,’ and finally, ‘How to Help Them.’
