As children on the spectrum are prone to do, Isabella was having a conversation with herself. One of her comments was, “Bella, you are retarded.”
When questioned about it, Bells said, “I’m sorry!” She was assured she had done nothing wrong. Questioned again, she had the same reaction and then she changed the subject.
The dreaded “r” word. I have been warning the girl, and everyone else within hearing range, to get rid of that word from their vocabularies unless used in a clinical way. Our precious children on the spectrum get called all kinds of names. When the “r” word is used to hurt, it is horrid.
Please teach that the “r” word is not acceptable. Period.
Have a blessed weekend, g
