I work with children with special needs! I have to fight everyday for my kids to have the respect they deserve from others around them. My kids have to endure a lot from being called foul words to being mistreated by people be they think that kids with autism or down syndrome are lesser then they are. It breaks my heart knowing some kids not have someone to stand up for them. I challenge all of you to stop people from using the "R" word and to work to make the place better for those with special needs.
