Perfectly coinciding with our youth video contest, students from Van Tech Secondary passed along this video of a compassion project they did earlier this year about misuse of “the R word”.
Van Tech and many other schools and programs have a number of special needs students who deserve extra attention and the same amount of respect as we do. In fact, one of our entries in the youth video contest includes intellectually challenged students in a musical number about love. This video can be seen and supported here.
Take a look below to see the short documentary about the struggles of being a special needs student in a public school.
