Show #89- News, Announcements and Money In Science and Education

In this week's show, I have some great information about upcoming trainings open to parents and educators at the Academy in Manayunk, including a RAVE-O training; Wilson reading and the LETRS program by Louisa Moates and taught by Nancy Hennessey , former president of the International Dyslexia Association.

I then discuss two recent news articles, one from Time Magazine regarding a former Bush Administration official talking about the failures of NCLB in an article entitled: No Child Left Behind: Doomed to Fail? by Claudia Willis. The second article is from the New York Times and discusses unreported pharmaceutical industry income by two of the most respected child psychiatrists in the country- Dr. Joseph Beiderman and Dr. Timothy Wilens. This article came as a complete shock to me, and prompted the recent post on the new LD Podcast blog. (Click here to go to the blog directly)

Dear Whitney, I recently found your podcast, while doing some research for a parent-oriented project of my own, and I wanted to let you know I'm loving it.

My kids are both developmentally delayed, age 2.5 and 5, and the outlook on their educational future seems grim when I speak to other parents. Thank you for putting this awesome resource out there for parents like me!
