Nothing dirty about being disabled

Written Material
Download

This letter, by the mother of a child with a disability, was reprinted from a local paper. She takes to task the attitudes of people who would wish to segregate children who have disabilities and gives strong reasons, from financial to community, why this is both short-sighted and wrong. She describes the education of her daughter in the local school, the benefits gained by all the students and the assumption that her daughter will be an employed contributing member of society as an adult.
