Educational Therapist to Lead Dyslexia Simulation


Pasadena, CA – Dyslexia is the most common cause 
of reading, writing and spelling difficulties. The 
Frostig Center invites the public to a simulation 
workshop that will allow participants to experience 
the challenges that people with dyslexia face every 

 Barb Langeloh, an educational therapist and 
president of the Los Angeles Branch of the 
International Dyslexia Association, will conduct 
the simulation. This free event will be held at The 
Frostig Center on Tuesday, September 25, from 6-8 

 During the workshop, participants will rotate 
through six stations that demonstrate common 
symptoms of dyslexia. Station leaders guide 
participants through each 8-minute activity, 
followed by a brief discussion. The simulation 
provides a lively, thought-provoking activity for 
parents, teachers or anyone interested in better 
understanding the lives of individuals with dyslexia.

 Ms. Langeloh has been in private practice for 
the past 30 years. She holds a Master of Science in 
Special Education from Santa Clara University.

 The presentation is part of the Frostig Speaker 
Series, which features experts in the field of learning 
differences. It is part of The Frostig Center’s efforts 
to improve the lives of children with learning 
challenges through research, community outreach 
and Frostig School. The school offers a full range 
of academic and support services for children with 
learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, 
high-functioning autism and ADHD.

(StatePoint) Busy families are always looking for 
efficient ways to pack healthy, satisfying school 
lunches. Keep kids on their “A” game this year 
with the following tips.

Get the Kids Involved

Getting your kids involved in packing their 
lunches is not only a great way to teach responsibility, 
it’s also an opportunity to discuss the fundamentals 
of healthy eating – plus with helpers 
afoot, it may just save you some time and energy.

Kids will enjoy feeling like they have some control 
over what goes into their lunches. Keep them focused 
by providing them with structured choices, 
such as -- turkey and swiss sandwich or cheddar 
and apple? Carrot sticks or sugar snap peas?

Include Fruit

Fruit is an important part of a child’s nutritious 
diet, so be sure that lunches include healthy fruit 
servings. Juice labels can be especially confusing, 
however, sticking to options made from 100 percent 
juice is a good rule of thumb. For example, 
Mott’s Sensibles, available in three flavors in convenient 
6-ounce pouches, contain 30 percent less 
sugar compared to 100 percent apple juices, and 
contain no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners.

Another way to include some fruit at lunch? 
Applesauce. A classic kids’ favorite, today’s applesauce 
is often healthier and more versatile than it 
once was. Free of added sugar and artificial colors, 
sweeteners and flavors, Mott’s Unsweetened 
Applesauce, for example, comes in flavors like 
granny smith, strawberry and blueberry, and can 
be used in lunchtime recipes such as Applesauce 
Energy Bars or Golden Apple Raisin Squares to 
boost flavor and nutrition.

Pick the Right Pack

Make your life easy and promote wellness with 
great lunch gear. Check labels; dishwasher-safe 
containers will streamline your routine and non-
toxic materials will help keep kids healthy and 
safe. If you plan to include both hot and cold 
food items, look into ice packs, sturdy leak-proof 
thermoses and lunch bags or boxes that feature 

Consistently creating great midday meals may 
sound like a tall order, but with a few go-to essentials 
and some smart packing strategies, you can 
help keep kids fueled for more focused learning.




Dear Savvy Senior,

How does health insurance and Medicare cover 
health care outside the U.S.? My husband and I have 
a trip abroad planned this fall and would like to find 
out if we should buy extra insurance. What can you 
tell us?

Almost Retired

Dear Almost,

Great question! No one likes to think about health 
problems while on vacation, but medical emergencies 
happen, and your regular insurance may not cover 
your care when you’re traveling abroad. To avoid any 
expensive surprises, here are some tips to help make 
sure you’re covered.

Know What’s Covered

 Your first step is to contact your health insurer to 
find out exactly what your plan covers when you’re 
traveling abroad. 

 If you have health coverage through an employer, 
the Health Insurance Marketplace or a private 
insurance company, the level of coverage can vary 
widely depending on your policy. 

 If your plan does provide coverage abroad ask 
about the specifics, such as whether the plan includes 
coverage for emergency evacuations to the U.S. and 
pre-existing medical conditions. You should also 
find out what your out-of-pocket costs will be if you 
need medical care while you’re away.

 If, however, you or your husband has original 
Medicare, it does not provide coverage outside the 
U.S. except in certain circumstances – on a cruise 
ship within six hours of a U.S., for instance. Some 
coverage is built in if you have one of the Medigap 
supplemental plans (C, D, F, G, M, N) that pay 80 
percent of bills for emergency care as long as it’s 
during the first 60 days of the trip abroad. There’s 
also a $250 annual deductible plus a lifetime limit of 
$50,000 for foreign travel emergency care.

 If you happen to have a Medicare Advantage plan, 
your coverage outside the U.S. will depend on the 
plan. Some plans offer emergency care coverage 
while others don’t. You’ll need to check your plan 
for details. 

Buy Extra Protection

 If your policy doesn’t provide health coverage 
outside the U.S., or if the coverage is limited with 
high out-of-pocket costs, you can purchase a 
travel medical insurance policy to cover you, or 
supplement what your insurer won’t cover. 

 To shop and compare plans, visit sites like or To give 
you a general idea of what travel medical insurance 
cost. A couple in their sixties planning a two-week 
trip to Europe, for example, could get a $50,000 
medical coverage limit and $100,000 for a medical 
evacuation for around $100 or higher. 

 You also need to know that most travel medical 
plans do not cover costs related to a pre-existing 
health conditions. So if you or your husband has a 
pre-existing condition that might require medical 
care, choose a comprehensive travel policy, which 
typically covers medical care, medical evacuation, 
trip cancellation, trip interruption and baggage loss, 
and then tack on a pre-existing-condition waiver. 

Finding Care

 If you get sick or injured during your trip, call 
your travel insurer who can recommend local 
care options. For extra help, consider joining the 
International Association for Medical Assistance to 
Travelers (, which provides its members 
access to a worldwide network of physicians 
who speak English and have agreed to affordable 
prearranged fees. Membership is free. Also visit to enroll your trip with nearest U.S. 
Embassy or Consulate. They too can offer health 
care referrals.


 If you do have travel medical insurance, and you 
receive medical care while traveling abroad, you 
will probably be required to file a claim and show 
medical records outlining the care you received and 
receipts. So make sure you get copies of these so you 
can get reimbursed when you get home.
