    Your article has touched my heart for I, too has a special need child. Although he is already a young adult now, I agree with what you said that they are prone to abuse, harassment and bullying.
    I experienced it first-hand when we are about to travel by plane. My son has been bullied by a lady while we were on a moving walkway. She thought that my son said something bad to her and she just burst into anger. We were about to apologise but she still kept on shouting at my son so, instead of apologising I just said to her that my son has autism and that she should understand.

      Thank You,

      I do understand people are not well mannered today, many people over react to situations. High anxiety is the reason for many of these people to act the way they do, it is best to overlook them and not hold a grudge. Children with special needs are often mistreated by people, children have feelings and many are very sensitive to the way they are treated. Protecting our children is the most important thing in our lives to do, things can be replaced but children can’t be replaced.

    Hi Jeff,

    My younger daughter has a speech disorder. She’s been going to daycare and preschool in the US for 3 years now and hasn’t shown too much progress in English. She’ll be 5 next month but doesn’t speak English very well but Korean was her first language and primarily spoken at home. Her Korean is ok.

    We switched preschools last year because we noticed that she would avoid going near the head teacher when we picked her up from school. On her last day, my daughter hugged every teacher except this lady. My suspicions were confirmed. She was probably a little “impatient” with my daughter. Now my daughter LOVES going to her preschool and it’s night and day what a change in schools has done for her.

      Thank You,

      I wish the best for your daughter’s progress in learning in her new school, often children need a variety of different learning techniques to learn to their potential. Many schools do not offer a variety of learning techniques which many children just don’t learn to their potential.

    The sad reality of this world is that there are a lot of really sick people out there who are just waiting for an innocent or special needs child to fall prey into their hands. If people truly knew the scale of abuse against children I’m pretty sure there would be a revolution. It’s that pervasive and that common. It’s a shame the news does not report on it as much as it happens–there would be much more public awareness and research and law reform to combat the wickedness that is child abuse. I hope your article helps the public to become more informed about this plague and give the organizations and charities you’ve outlined in your article.

      Thank You Wendi

      I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my article, children are too precious for us to allow abuse and neglect to happen in our society. I thank you for all your wise and kind words, I do hope more people realize these organizations could do so much more with their help.

      Jeff
