I’m Amber a fourteen year old girl who’s a victim of a disability called Cerebral Palsy or C.P. I go to Deerpark Middle School as an eighth grader. I am writing this petition on behalf of my disabled friends because I want the low functioning kids to attend classes with regular kids. Disabled kids and grown-ups get discriminated all over the world because someone can’t talk, walk, control their hands, see or hear.If they are included in general education classes with the student population then the discrimination level will reduce because other kids will notice how much potential they have regardless of the challenges they face everyday. The first reason I believe low functioning kids should be integrated in classrooms is because other students will notice them and compliment them which will make them feel better. According to, “Over 90% of disabled kids commit suicide” that’s almost 100%! A fourteen year girl called Carly Fleischmann who has autism said “we all are capable of doing great things. We just need more people to believe in us and to help us to reach our full potential.” The second reason I believe low functioning kids should be integrated in classrooms is because they have a whole life ahead of them and they’re not going to be able to live their life if they’re learning what’s two times two! They need to be in normal classes to be successful in life! “I think people get a lot of their information from so-called experts but I think what happens is that experts can’t give an explanation to certain questions. How can you explain something you have not lived or if you don’t know what it’s like to have it? If a horse is sick, you don’t ask a fish what’s wrong with the horse. You go right to the horse’s mouth.” The final reason I believe that low functioning kids should be integrated in classrooms is because they’re normal. Carly Fleischmann said “a stim is a way to create output to block out the input. How many people doodle on a piece of paper or tap [their] foot or twiddle [their] thumbs or play with [their] hair? That’s all stimming but it’s more noticeable with [disabled] kids because our stims don’t look socially appropriate.” I know that you might want to disagree with me because of safety issues and other negative comments that might arise but giving disabled children their right to attend regular classrooms is the right thing to do! Just like Carly Fleischmann audio filters all the negative noises around her, you should audio filter all negative thoughts and listen to the disabled kids’ hearts. “I heard a smart man say recently that [disabilities are] unique because people with [disabilities] have extraordinary talents that justs needs to be molded and encouraged. I believe that we all have inner voices that need to come out to the world. It is not fair to give up on us when we haven’t given up on ourselves.” I would like to thank you for having me on your show… I was told once no one will listen ‘till someone stands up. Well I am standing up now and I was wondering if you would stand beside me?” “It’s been hard process for me to get to the point that I am able to spell. I believe we all have an inner voice. We just need to find a way to get it out.” We want you to tell Congress to add a new law in the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights! We want a new law! Take action! Use your powers to make a difference and a positive impact on the world! All disabled children no matter how severe have the right to attend regular classrooms with regular kids! All of the disabled kids’ dreams are now in your hands!
