Parents and teachers of children with special needs will benefit from "Body, Mind and Child" insights.

Today, the BAM Radio Network (BRN), a joint project of Moving & Learning and Jackstreet Media, announced that Abilitations Catalog has partnered with the company to launch Abilitations Radio. The new channel is featured on http://www.abilitations.com, a site that provides solutions for kids with learning difficulties. Abilitations Radio will nanocast BRN's premier program, "Body, Mind and Child" (http://www.bodymindandchild.com), hosted by Rae Pica, a 30-year veteran in the field of early childhood education. The program offers insightful discussions with the nation's leading child development experts on issues parents and teachers of children with special needs care about most.

"Abilitations is a wonderful resource for those who live and work with children with special needs," said Pica. "We're delighted to contribute to their offerings."

"The radio program will provide light on some of the struggles that are met by parents of children with special needs, said Ilana Danneman, PT, catalog director. These children often need much of the same behavioral and developmental guidance that other children need with just a bit of adaptation. The radio program would be a great resource for all parents."

About BAM Radio Network

The BAM Radio Network was launched to address the severe imbalance in parenting practices caused by the "commercialization of parenting" and the emphasis on intellectual development that excludes the critical role of the mind/body connection in early childhood. Created by leading early childhood experts, the programming challenges the popular genre of parenting notions that has given rise to commercial products like Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby and lapware, all of which claim to accelerate a child's mental development in the face of science that suggests otherwise. The network is a joint venture between New Hampshire-based Moving & Learning and Los Angeles-based Jackstreet Media Ventures LLC. The program is distributed through the Affiliate Nanocasting Network.
