Individual and Group Educational Presentations

Autism Overview Part I – It’s just not all in your head!
Participants will learn about the possible causes of autism, brief anatomy lesson and how autism affects individuals including communication-sensory-movement and social issues, the many treatments and therapies available, knowing the different “camps” in the world of autism and more!

Autism Overview Part II- De-mystify to De-stigmatize!
Learn to look at the person with autism as the beautiful and unique person that he/she is by acknowledging the strengths, understanding the challenges and knowing that “behaviors” have meaning. Learn to challenge yourself to help to decrease the stigma and to assist the community with embracing our loved ones and the families affected by autism. This session will better prepare you to interact with a person with autism on any personal or professional level.

The autism overview presentations can be tailored to your group. This is a great presentation for churches, youth groups, law enforcement, attorneys, DA’s, community organizations, YMCA staff, daycare providers, school district personnel, county MHMR and provider staff, physicians and medical professionals, college students and professors, personnel from restaurants and other businesses that have or will eventually encounter individuals with autism and their families.

Home Schooling your Child with Autism
This session will assist you with implementing, transitioning or improving your home educational program for your child with autism or other special needs. Participants will learn how to create home ed lesson plans, write and assess goals, incorporate communication, sensory, motor and social needs into the schedule, use community resources, create a portfolio, review required documentation, get the most out of the computer and more! The many benefits of home schooling a child with special needs are reviewed. Your kid will love you even more for taking this session!

No Vaccines for Me!
Kathleen will take you through the history of the use of vaccinations, decline of disease, and the history of medicine and health care.  Participants will be shocked to learn about the ingredients in the vaccines, how they are made, and the serious side effects and potential risks to those that use them.  Kathleen will also address the government connections to the pharmaceutical industry and how laws were initiated over the years to protect the drug companies which limit resources for those that are injured or killed by vaccines.  Most are not aware of the right to refuse vaccinations for themselves and their children so information about these exemptions will be provided to participants.  Updates on what is happening in the news media and legal arena regarding vaccine issues will be shared.  As a nurse, Kathleen also discusses what she believes to be medical and nursing negligence/malpractice when health care providers fail to properly share correct information about vaccines with patients prior to vaccinating.  Studies, and their major flaws and uselessness, will also be discussed as in her own words, “when you mix government, academia, and medicine/health care together, you get a lethal injection of BS!”  Kathleen will also discuss her book and how we can educate the younger generation on this topic.  Vaccine lack of safety and lack of efficacy issues will be revealed and all people who attend this very interesting lecture will be much more informed to make a decision.

Toxic Sick Care & Psychiatry
Kathleen will present information regarding the history of healthcare, including the psychiatric health care profession including government involvement with institutions as well as the many varied and dangerous protocols and treatments that were applied onto individuals who were labeled as psychiatrically ill.  Many of these treatments are still used today in a modified form.  Some of the very people that are honored in the field of psychiatry have some very colorful pasts and participants will be shocked when the truth is revealed.  She will also discuss the overuse of psychiatric medication in adults and children and the truth about side effects and efficacy of these pharmaceuticals.  Medicine (healthcare) is not the science we are tricked into believing it is and instead, changes like the wind!  You will also learn to follow the money which is usually the incentive behind any healthcare or medical treatment being promoted in the mass media and medical marketplace!  This lecture will also provide personal examples of relating to physicians and those who work in the health care industry and teach participants how to truly take more control over their health without relying on the sick care industry to dictate medical opinions. Fundraising and not-for-profit scams for cancer and autism will also be revealed and participants will learn how to protect their wallets and their health from the disability/autism/cancer money making industries. After exposing the truth about the sick care system, she ends with more natural and common sense methods to promote a healthy lifestyle for yourself and your children.

Who’s S*** is it Anyway? : A Professional Parent’s Perspective of Dealing with the Systems
Parents will learn how to better understand professionals and navigate the systems. Providers will learn to understand how their behaviors, words and interactions affect the consumers and families. Personal experiences are shared throughout this unique presentation as Kathleen emerges and recovers from being a professional “behavior” nurse to a parent of a child with autism. Join her in her story of transformation to the “other side of the desk”.

Documentation Issues
Learn how to use the nursing process to assist you with your best documentation. This session can be tailored to a variety of settings such as IEP’s, nursing and paraprofessional notes, program notes, home school documentation, goals and outcomes, nursing and treatment plans and more.

Domestic Violence – The Crime with Little Time

Learn the myths and facts about domestic violence. Personality traits and disorders of abusers and how they “work” the victim and the courts, antisocial and narcissistic disorders, signs and symptoms of abusive relationships, PTSD and depression, and the challenges victims face to protect themselves and their children which extend from the home to the workplace, school, court room, and extended family. Kathleen shares what she has learned through her professional experience as a psychiatric nurse having worked with offenders and victims as well as her personal story as a survivor of domestic violence.

The SonShine Healing Adventure:
Kathleen describes the details of this very successful and innovative home and community program which she developed specifically for her son. The SonShine Healing Adventure is a “modified” form of many interventions designed for a specific child and is based on principles of success and the nursing process: assessment, plan, implement, reassess, and revise. Knowing that any single program will not be the key for success for children, the “parent-run” SonShine Healing Adventure incorporates a variety of “modified” methods and techniques used for assisting children with autism such as the SonRise Option, AAC/FC, TEACCH, Computer Language Programs, Floor time, Sensory Integration, Brain Gym Activities, Total Communication Approaches such as sign language, gesturing, and expressive speech, and more. She has even come up with a few of her own techniques for teaching skills such as potty training, horseback riding, tying shoes, receiving dental care, and swimming which were greatly beneficial for her son.

This is a child and parent centered program focused on motivational ideas so the child will learn to make choices because he or she wants to, and not just to receive a cookie or to avoid an aversion or discipline.  (The token, incentive methods, withholding enjoyed activities or food, and restraints, are NOT used in the SonShine Healing Program at all. Kathleen will also address how to unschool your child if he or she was involved in one of these dangerous school or  community programs that use behavior therapy, intimidation, forced compliance, abuse, and/or restraints.)

Disability and Abuse – It’s not just at home!

Although most studies and statistics available only specify or reference parental abuse, individuals with disabilities are many times abused by the very people we trust and pay to care for and educate them.  This session will expose this national tragedy by sharing true stories, real pictures and problems within the legal justice system when the victim is disabled and the perpetrator is a paid professional or paraprofessional.  The disabled are further abused by the systems and courts when they do not receive adequate representation, accommodations to testify, or fair and equal treatment in the justice system.

Many systems that care for our loved ones with disabilities are allowed to do their own investigations, which is a huge conflict of interest. The person with the disability and their family members are usually fighting major organizations that use your tax dollars to defend their actions of abuse.  These perpetrators and organizations may even continue to intimidate the abused and the families by threats of loss of services altogether, blaming the parent for the abuse, or justifying their actions claiming the abused was violent or out of control. Believe it or not, many professionals actually defend the use of aversion and restraints in the name of education or therapy and minimize the trauma and harm these tactics cause our loved ones.

This session will increase awareness of this ongoing tragedy, reveal the problems with the current systems (educational, medical, state, county, legal) and provide you with information and ideas on how to prevent abuse, assess for and document abuse, consents, releases, reporting and more.  This session will benefit parents, caregivers and individuals with disabilities as well as professionals and paraprofessionals working within the legal system, educational, medical or provider systems, or anyone that may be a mandated reporter of abuse.

Caring is a moral ideal,
And a personal commitment,
To acting in such a way,
That dignity is preserved,
And humanity is restored,
And people are not reduced to an object.”
