I am currently 17 & in high school. For as long as I can remember, I've always been able to tell if someone had a special need, even if it isn't obvious. Ever since I could say "baby doctor", I thought I wanted to be a pediatrician.
my sister in law had seizures and because of them her brain was affected. she had pneumonia and was on a ventilator. I was staying with her when the family doctor came in to talk to us. he used this word and she heard it.
This year Kentucky Wesleyan College's KEA-SP organization has gathered individuals from local disabilities services to represent students and adults with disabilities and to speak about their experience with the R word.
There is no difference between you and me or anybody else, we all think, eat, sleep, and have feelings.. We all live life, we all need help, just some others needs little extra help, but that's ok.
I was called the r word a lot in school i felt loney sad and i felt like i was not loved
One of my cousins has autism. For my whole life, I have learned something new about him everyday. I want to make sure that no one will ever call him the r-word.
I have 2 daughters. My oldest is studying to be a teacher. My youngest is special needs. she is a miracle in progress.
At one time, I taught religious education classes at my church. One year I had a student who was acting goofy in class and ended up falling out of his chair. Another boy in the class told him that he was being retarded. I stopped class right there.
I grew up in a household where my mother taught middle school students and my father helped adults with special needs. I was surrounded by all these people with "special needs" and grew to love them as my own.
I'm just a teenage girl, but in my hallways at school I hear the people call many people many names including the r-word.
WAVE 3 News: by Connie Leonard
My heart broke when I heard it. There I was, sitting there watching a Lunch ‘n Learn on my laptop, when it dropped like a bomb—the R-word.
