A few months ago, I was showing a photo of my girls to an acquaintance. I happened to mention that my older daughter has a learning disability and spent most of her school years in a special education classroom. I mentioned how proud of her I am, that she is attending college now. This person said, “She doesn’t look like a special ed student.” Exactly how does a special ed student look???? I mean, I know that some disabilities are obvious. But most are not. It still bothers me to this day that she said that. My daughter does not look like a disability. She looks like my beautiful, hard working daughter. I guess what I am trying to say is look beyond the disability, look at the PERSON.
