I am a mother of a 5-year old boy on the high functioning end of the spectrum. Children are mean to him because he likes to touch their hair, especially while standing in line at school. He goes up to children and they either ignore him or make fun of him because he speaks like a 4-year-old. It breaks my heart because he is sweet and caring, and he does cry. I am an educator in the making, going to school to become a teacher. I advocate for all underrepresented children, not only those with disabilities but for English Learners and minorities as well. I dream of the day when people are more sensitive and caring towards those who have different needs. Thank you for creating websites like this one!
