My Weekly Special Needs Awareness Radio Show on 99.9 Kiss FM Abuja

Discussing the topic "Explaining Disabilities to Typical Students in an Inclusive School to Promote Acceptance and Reduce Bullying" on air @ Kiss 99.9 FM with my beautiful mentor @ememopashi and my big sister from another mother @shade.samuel was one of the fun moments that I will not forget in a hurry (the pictures tell it all).
We started off by explaining what it means to be a bully and also described various types of bullying such as physical bullying, verbal bullying, emotional bullying, relational bullying, cyber bullying, etc., and their effects on individuals living with special needs.
We talked about the possibilities of individuals with special needs experiencing verbal and emotional bullying by parents and siblings unintentionally, even before they begin to experience it at school.
We also highlighted some of the ways to prevent bullying and promote acceptance of individuals living with disabilities at home, in our classrooms and the entire school.
Many thanks to our host and special guests who agreed to be on the show tonight despite their busy schedules.
Let's do this again next week, same time, same station. Together, we can make a difference!

In line with our belief in continued professional and self-development as a way of boosting workplace productivity as well as personal confidence and effectiveness, the Dewdrops Community Centre for Special Needs organised its first staff development training for the year on 11 January 2018.
The theme of the training was “Personal Effectiveness and Optimized Thinking,” and the topic was: FLYING IN THE FACE OF THE ORDINARY, facilitated by the renowned Life Optimisation and Clarity Coach, Mr. David Babale of DB Innovations.
He conducted the training for all teaching and non-teaching staff of the Dewdrops Community Centre using various contemporary training resource materials and techniques to drive home his life changing points over a period of 6 hours.

In the end, some of the training outcomes included steering of the staff in the direction of higher productivity and building the cohesion necessary for a TRIBE of special educators and caregivers to provide excellent services to learners with special needs and their families.
The training ended with a closing remark by the Program Director, Mrs. Lola Aneke. And now we’re set to fly with renewed excellence in the face of the ordinary!
