One of the most significant ways we can prevent those with unique abilities from being stigmatized is to open the doors to discussion and conversation. Kids need to ask these hard questions- their curiosity is not just acceptable, but should be encouraged. It is up to us, the parents, to show our children that though we may all face different challenges, these challenges and unique attributes are not walls that separate. Instead, they should be scaled and celebrated, enabling all children– all people– to see that despite our physical or mental differences, we all share the same beating heart and desire for inclusion, love and acceptance underneath. This is the goal.
