My Family

My godfather's sister had Down syndrome. She never went to school. Catherine was my big sister I never had. Now I have a son with mild intellectual disabilities. It is bad how Illinois is 48th in union that really cares for their citizens with disabilities. No services, no caring, no legal representation. I am a special ed teacher trying to teach my students to stand up for themselves so they do not get abused, taken advantage of. Like my son was twice. And the put downs and name calling! Illinois has a long way to go! With sensitivity, tolerance, and acceptance that, there are citizens here with unique abilities who may not act and look like most. And thats. Ok!
