I'm struck that this student, who happens to have a disability, clearly has a wonderful ability to love, understand himself, and express such important things about himself. How fortunate he is to have found the loving forever family that he deserves, and how fortunate that his family has found such a loving and capable son.

A beautifully written piece from a gentle soul. He is blessed to be surrouned by such loving and supportive people. He definitely has a chance in life because of this.

I too, as a special education teacher, have students with special needs who have been bullied in school. However in instances where the bullying has impeded the students ability to excel in school, I have encouraged parents to file a report with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). Bullying based upon a disability is considered discrimination. All LEAs received a letter from the OCR in June 2000 outlining what steps to take when bullying is occurring and outlining how special needs students civil rights are being violated when bullying is based upon a child's disability.
