Bullying of a child in school isn’t always the act of a student. Parents of special needs children should be able to send their loved ones to school thinking that their child will be safe, educated and cared for by individuals that are adequately trained and willing to always do their jobs in an appropriate manner; unfortunately, that is not always the case.
After nearly a decade of working in schools that service special needs children and witnessing and reporting far too many cases of bullying, abuse and neglect at the hands of staff, Richard S. Stripp, Sr. wrote this book. The public must be made aware of what can and does happen to these innocent children. More must be done to protect them.
“Mommy, I Wish I Could Tell You What They Did To Me In School Today” is a glimpse into the minds of 10 different children with varying disabilities through the eyes of one of their closest friends. The author has worked directly with these children and because most of them can’t speak for themselves, he has given us an idea of what they might possibly say. All of the scenarios discussed in this book are based on actual events. While some of it may be disturbing, the hope is that the reader will learn what can occur in an effort to make things better in the future. This one-of-a-kind book is a must-read for anyone socially, emotionally, or professionally linked to any special needs person.
