    Welcome back to the All About Audiology podcast. I’m your host, Dr. Lilach Saperstein. Today, I’d like to talk about how we as parents can look at our child’s life and look at our parenting with the goal of helping to maintain and create beautiful, inclusive, full and wonderful lives for our children.







    With me today, I have Genia Stephen, who helps kids with intellectual disabilities build inclusive lives in school, at home and in a community. She is the founder and host of The Good Things In Life podcast for kids with disabilities. She also manages a community of parents of children with disabilities.







    Dr. Lilach Saperstein: “Genia, welcome to the show.”







    Genia Stephen: “Thank you so, so much for having me. I’m really excited to be here and excited to be spending more time with you.”















    LS: “Thank you. So, I want to ask you about yourself and how you came into disability work to begin with.”







    GS: “Yeah, sure. So, I have a younger sister, I mean we’re not young anymore, we’re in our forties, but a younger sister who has an intellectual disability. And I had the great fortune of having a mother who was a really fierce advocate and she really kind of brought our whole family on board. So, I had the great blessing of growing up in a disability-positive community surrounded by internationally renowned thought leaders and mentors. I really received a world class disability parenting education just growing up. I did some work in the disability field and presented it. Did some teaching myself, as well. And then fourteen years ago, I had my second son and he has disabilities as well. So, I kind of came on board as a parent, in addition to being a sister.







    My mom was really involved in the disability parent movement for my sister’s whole life, and she still is. And I was not really sure where I fit into that. And my other world is that I’m a registered midwife in Ontario, Canada. Over many years, I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of families and it became really apparent that the experience of most parents of having a child with a disability was very dramatically different from what I had experienced. And I already knew that. But one of the key differences that I was seeing over and over again, was that one, I didn’t have to learn a bunch of stuff. Also, who surrounded me and the kinds of ideas that surrounded me when my son was born was dramatically different than what other parents experience.







    So, when my mom first received a diagnosis for my sister, parents of her generation either looked something up in the yellow pages, which some young parents might be even so young as to not remember. But the phone book used to be how we found phone numbers. So, they would look up something in the phone book or maybe their family doctor would provide them with a brochure or something like that. And they would get connected with another parent or an organization or that kind of thing. But what happens for parents now is that they get a diagnosis, or even suspicion of a diagnosis, where they are in that unsure and uncertain phase of things. And they will immediately Google that diagnosis and what they get from Google is a list of complications and a list of Facebook groups around that diagnosis or treatment modality.

    Welcome back to the All About Audiology podcast. I’m your host, Dr. Lilach Saperstein. I’m so excited to be having a very, very special guest today.







    Dr. Saperstein: “Why don’t you introduce yourself? Welcome to the show!”







    Ra’ananit: “I’m a little shy.”







    LS: “You’re a little shy. That’s okay.”







    Ra’ananit: “My name is Ra’ananit.”















    LS: “How old are you?”







    R: “Six.”







    LS: “And how do you know me?”







    R: “Because you’re my mommy.”







    LS: “Oh, hello there. Welcome to my delightful, six year old, delicious daughter, who wanted to be on the podcast. Because what do you see me doing all the time?”







    R: “Hmmm.”







    LS: “Recording.”







    R: “Yeah.”







    LS: “Editing.”







    R: “Your podcast.”







    LS: “Yeah. Now the reason I wanted to bring you on here today is because you were not in school for a little while, right? How come you had such a long vacation when you were home with Ima (Hebrew for mother)?







    R: “Because of Corona.”







    LS: “Because of Corona, that’s right. We were home from march 15th all the way through the end of May and then school started up again. And then what happened?”







    R: “A boy from my school’s Abba (Hebrew for father) came to, um, take pictures early of his son, and he went in with no mask, is my guess. And if he got Corona from his dad, that’s why I’m home right now.”







    LS: “So, one of the fathers in your class tested positive for Corona. Because he dropped off his son and he was in school, then now the school is closed until they can test the children of the family and then they will decide if the school can open again. That’s why we are home and we decided to do a podcast. So, here we go.







    I have some questions for you. What do you think is the coolest thing about ears?”







    R: “That they can hear.”







    LS: “How do they work?”







    R: “First, when you hear a song, it hits your eardrum and then you get um, three, three bones, I forgot what they’re called. And if it’s too loud, they have to make it softer and if it’s too soft, they have to make it louder. What I remember that’s next is, um, lots of hair and when the hair hears something, they like change color and are like weee, back dancing. The signal that goes to the brain and then the brain helps you hear.”







    LS: “Wow, you really know a lot about ears. So, let me ask you something. Do you think it’s really important to study together with other kids in your class or do you just like want one on one with Ima at home, or both?”







    R: “Ummm, I don’t get it.”







    LS: “Like, what’s better? Being in class with all your friends and learning together as a group...

    All About Deaf Plus and Rare Disorders – Episode 41 with Madeline Cheney

    All About Deaf Plus and Rare Disorders – Episode 41 with Madeline Cheney

    Welcome to the All About Audiology podcast. I’m your host, Dr. Lilach Saperstein and today I have with me Madeline Cheney from Utah, who is also the creator and host of the Rare Life podcast, which is a podcast for parents whose children have rare disorders. And we are very excited to have Madeline with us.







    LS: “Welcome, Madeline!”







    Madeline: “Thank you so much. I’m so happy to be here.”















    LS: “And I’m so happy to have you on the show because one of the things that we have not talked about yet so much is children who are deaf plus, or have multiple things going on and challenges in different areas. It can be medical concerns, social concerns, all these other things where hearing loss may or may not be at the top of the list of priorities for themselves and their families. So, I think this is a very important population, a very important topic, and I’m really excited to chat with you today.”







    MC: “Thank you. I have a lot of passion about this topic since his (my son) hearing loss is a really big part of who he is in our life since he’s been born and so I’m really excited to talk about this.”







    LS: “Alright, so why don’t you start by telling us a little bit about yourself and a little bit about your inspiration, your little kiddo?”







    MC: “Yeah. So, I live with my husband and my four year old daughter, that’s Kimball’s big sister. And she is completely typical in every sense of the word. In fact, she was even advanced in her language skills. And then Kimball is our almost two year old and he is our little special guy with a lot of different disabilities. And so, we have been dealing with that since, well really he was pre-diagnosed when I was pregnant with him. And so, that really, when he was 20 weeks gestation, that is when this roller coaster started, and we’ve learned a lot since then. I feel like a whole different person now.”







    LS: “Yeah, yeah, absolutely. And I think that’s such an important point to mention that it really changes everything. It doesn’t just effect the child and what their life is going to be like, but it changes the parents’ life. And that, obviously, even when you know about it in utero, and sometimes you have more time, sometimes that’s better, and sometimes that’s more challenging. So, what was that like for you guys when you had that time?”







    MC: “So, because we knew pretty far in advance before he was born that he had this issue, his specific condition, it has a really long name that no one’s heard of. So, I’m going to spare you but it is a form of skeletal dysplasia, which basically means issue with his bone formation. So, there are birth defects that were related to that. And so, we were given warning about different things like he has an unstable cervical spine, which basically means that the vertebrae in his spine are not fully hardened, and so it doesn’t protect his spinal cord from compression, which would lead to paralysis or death. So, like that was something we knew was on the table that’s associated with it. We also knew from ultrasounds that he did not have a nose bone forming. And so, he has a really narrow nasal airway. So, we knew a few things like that. But there was very little known. He also has dwarfism, which we were also able to see, that was one of the red flags we saw is that his limbs were measuring shorter for his gestational age.

    All About Teletherapy- Episode 40 – Season 3 wrap-up with Stacy Crouse, SLP

    All About Teletherapy- Episode 40 – Season 3 wrap-up with Stacy Crouse, SLP

    Welcome back to The All About Audiology podcast. I’m your host, Dr. Lilach Saperstein and today we are celebrating Episode 40 and the end of season three, another 10 amazing episodes of the podcast!!!!! I am so grateful to each and every one of you who listen to the podcast, and for sharing it with your friends and in your Facebook groups and in your support groups. I really, really appreciate it and I’m so grateful that you’re listening and to be having these incredible conversations. From the beginning, you guys know this podcast is all about connecting with you guys and having a dialogue. It’s not just me speaking, you know, and lecturing and saying what I think but it’s really important for me to bring on other voices and other stories and perspectives so that we can all learn from one another.







    Before I jump into the interview with Stacy Crouse, who has been doing teletherapy for years and she shares some of her greatest tips both for new therapist learning the whole world of teletherapy and for how parents can support their children from home while they’re doing online therapy. But before we jump into that conversation, I would just like to take a few minutes to do a recap of season three. And if you haven’t heard any of the episodes, definitely go back and listen.







    Season Three started off with an incredible interview with Mama Manon, who is a parenting coach with her perspective of looking at connection and how can we get close to our children by being really present and seeing what their needs are in the moment and what our needs are in every situation. Lots of amazing tips there for connecting and for remaining present in prioritizing getting to know our children, definitely check out Episode 31 for that interview with Mama Manon.







    Now, you guys know that I love audiology and I can talk about it all day and get really excited about the details and things that we can learn. But it’s also really important for me not to only speak in jargon, and use all this medical terminology. I want to know how is this affecting your life, your experience, and how the things that we’re doing in the audiology clinic and during testing appointments, how that applies to you and what that means for you, your family and your child. And that’s why I was very excited about Episode 33, with Dr. Julie Renshaw, and we talked all about the audiology equipment. You’d think that episode is very technical, but in fact, it was a lot about how we use the equipment to get the information that we need and how we can have the parents be a partner in that journey. Dr. Renshaw shared her experience and her tips for new clinicians. So, a lot of you student audiology listeners out there really loved that episode. And it was also beautiful to hear how she includes parents in a diagnostic evaluation so that they can also be following along and understand what the testing means. That was Episode 33. You can go check that out.







    Of course, all of these will be linked in the show notes with full transcripts of every episode as always, and then it was March of 2020. And that’s just about the time that the COVID-19 pandemic was really affecting many, many millions of people all around the world, with many of us staying at home with our children.

    All About Balance – Episode 39 with Michelle Riddle

    All About Balance – Episode 39 with Michelle Riddle

    Welcome to the All About Audiology podcast. I’m your host, Dr. Lilach Saperstein and on today’s episode, we’re going to be talking a lot about balance, not only about actual physical balance, like how we make our body and space, but also a lot of different ways that we can balance how we show up in the world for our kids, for our patients, for our students. And I have with me a very special guest, Michelle Riddle from British Columbia, that’s in Canada, hahaha, for those of you who are from New York, like me, just joking, and don’t necessarily know your geography. Anyway, Michelle Riddle is an occupational therapist, and also a registered holistic nutritionist. And she is going to share with us about a very interesting triad, like a three part paradigm. So, let’s welcome Michelle to the show.







    LS: “Welcome, Michelle, thanks so much for coming on the show. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do.”







    MR: “Yeah, hi, my name is Michelle Riddle. I’m an occupational therapist and registered holistic nutritionist. I am an instructor at Vancouver Island University and my passion is brain development. I have a company called Resilient Health and the goal is to be able to help people, especially our kids, develop in the way that is the best for themselves, to achieve their potential and bring that forward throughout their life.















    Thank you so much for having me here today. This is really exciting. Yeah, the Visual-Vestibular-Auditory Triad, so there’s a three part series there that is necessary for us to be able to process information and to learn. And it’s a really interesting group of sensory organs. Because we have our eyes that are taking in the information from what we’re seeing in our environment, but they also have muscles and how the eyes move in space determines how we perceive what we’re looking at, how we can track visually, and how we can judge distances. Then we have our ears for hearing and also for registering vibration. And in the inside of our ears, we have the vestibular system. And this system is a wonderful system that ties that whole triad together.







    So, with that triad, we need it to be able to control movement. We need it to be able to figure out where we are in space, to give us a three dimensional view of the world. Also to feel secure and stable. When our body is dealing with gravity all the time, if we’re not in control of our postural muscles, our brain senses that there’s something kind of off, what are we doing? How do we manage this? So, there can be an emotional component as well within this whole system. The three units, the visual system, the vestibular system and the auditory system all share the eighth cranial nerve. And there needs to be noise from the vestibular system along this nerve for the brain to really process the information from all of these systems.







    LS: “Wow. That’s a lot, so, we’re gonna break that down. Let’s start from the beginning. First of all, what is an occupational therapist for those who don’t know exactly, specifically. I think a lot of people think oh, OT (occupational therapist) will help you hold a pencil. An OT will help children who have low muscle tone, maybe those are things that are commonly known about OT, but actually, we are big fans of interdisciplinary care. And there’s a lot of overlap between audiologists and speech pathologists for sure, those are super close. We’re always talking about communication. But we also have a big relationship together with OTs and PTs (physical therapist) for the vestibular system,

    All About You- Episode 38

    The FIG Method Course!







    Welcome to the All About Audiology podcast. I’m your host, Dr. Lilach Saperstein and this is the All About YOU! episode, and today we’re going to be talking about advocating. You guys know that this is a really important part of my message and of the mission of the All About Audiology podcast. And everything that I do is to help empower families, who are navigating this whole world of audiology and of having a child who has specific communication needs, specific health challenges and educational needs. A really big part of that is learning how to advocate. Knowing what it is that you need and what you want for your child to have, knowing what their rights are, what accessibility you want them to have and then fighting for it so that they get it. That big, big piece of the journey is often left to the side, and left to when we are able to think about it, when we are not in this super rush of everything else going on.







    So, I mentioned this before on an earlier podcast about how with everything that’s changed in the world, in our new post-corona era, we maybe had time to take stock of what are the big things that matter. What do we really want for our kids, for ourselves, for our family, for our home, and for how we want our life to look. Of course, it’s been a very difficult time for many people and if you are struggling or grieving, then be there and I’m really with you in that. Maybe, you can also make room for more connection and being even more connected to your child and being involved in their journey. Not only their journey, but yours as well.







    If you have been following me on Instagram, or you are in the All About Audiology Facebook group, then you know we are in the middle of the 5 day “Know What To Say” challenge. I’ve been sending emails and also going live every day on both Facebook and Instagram to talk about how to know what to say in those really difficult situations where you are hit with someone else’s comments. So, I really encourage you to come and join the group and check on those videos. You can always watch them, they are all recorded.







    The big and exciting thing that I’m finally sharing with you guys is the FIG Method of Advocating Course. This is a framework that I came up with after working with many, many families. It helps you understand what is the process and it really breaks it all down. How am I supposed to know what to say? Am I really just supposed to swallow it and move on? Or do I fight back? Do I explain or educate?







    All these times when you are in that place, someone is either attacking you or they are being super ignorant. I think we can all relate to this with any time in your life where you felt that someone has said exactly the thing that you didn’t need to hear. Something that was really hurtful to you, made you very angry or confused, uncertain, insecure or shocked, how could they say such a thing, right? With the FIG Method, I break down what are the elements that you can go through in order to know on the spot and in the moment what to say. What’s the right thing? What do you need out of this situation?







    This is a training that I have given to groups of parents and non-profit organizations. It has been such an excellent workshop with a lot of back and forth and interaction,
