HEARING IMPAIRED PEN PALS
Having a hearing loss is not easy, sometimes you may feel very lonely and sad. Research shows that children with disabilities are often bullied at higher rates than those without disabilities. Just knowing this fact can help you NAVIGATE social situations and recognize when you may not be being treated fairly. Please talk to an adult, a teacher or a friend if you ever feel that you are being treated unfairly by others. I encourage you to learn more about bullying at this website.
YES, you are different, but so am I, and so is your teacher and your mother and your aunt… we are all unique with amazing talents and ideas. Never be afraid to be who you are, never stand for bullying, and always DREAM BIG!
