I have a 13-year-old daughter who has Down syndrome and possibly autism. Most people in my life know about my daughter yet they still throw the "R" word around like it is nothing more than a word.
In one of my classes, Peer Tutor, I work with different students with disabilities. All the funny, educational, and exciting moments with them truly melt my heart. I witness their true potential.
I have a son who is bipolar, A.D.H.D., and O.D.D. I can not stand the R word because he has been called that so many times. People and kids do not realize that it hurts their feelings.
My Uncle has Epilepsy and a few other things. It drives me nuts when people use derogatory language about him because they don't know him and he is clearly different than most.
I am former college athlete who got into special education and it changed my life. It made me switch my goals and job path from sports management to special education.
