How schools help students with down syndrome
How we can help
Did you know people with down syndrome have an extra chromosome? There are many ways you can help students with Down Syndrome or really any special needs student. Ways you can help students with Down Syndrome is by just being friendly, it may not sound hard but many "regular" students bull students with Down Syndrome. Another way you can help students with Down Syndrome is by standing up for them if you ever see them being bullied. This quote comes from Yvone Pierre in her memoir called The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir. “When you focus on someone's disability you'll overlook their abilities, beauty and uniqueness. Once you learn to accept and love them for who they are, you subconsciously learn to love yourself unconditionally.”
