My daughter has Down syndrome, and she attends a public school. She is 17. This is the first year that her brother who is 13 also attends the same school. This is also the same school I teach at. My son has asked to be transferred since he can't stand the fact that so many people use the r-word to describe his sister and her friends....he has stood up to people and lost friends...but...he says...."I will change the world, 1 person at a time. As long as I have Sammi in my life...I will protect her no matter what!"
