DID YOU KNOW?
…that children with intellectual disabilities (formerly known as mental retardation), are bullied four times as often as other kids in school? That’s inexcusable!
Talk with your child about bullying, and if it’s a reality for them, take action to stop it now. If necessary, be your child’s voice. All kids deserve a safe environment in which to learn and grow.
