Lead the Kids with Special Needs

This petition had 244 supporters

With the millions of issues the world is facing there are problems that are not given attention. One of which is the overlooked situation of the children with special needs. These are the ones who experience mild learning disabilities, psychiatric problems and other developmental delays.

Their real situation is seen only by those who are able to interact with them. Without having a relative or friend in that vulnerable situation others will not be aware. Thus, children with special needs is not the only issue but also the society. We need to be educated to properly raise awareness and provide the kids with special needs bonafide intervention through the help of their families and friends. 

To have a strong solution partnering with other organizations and public servant will boost our campaign to success. ChildFind Learning and Play Center is a non-profit organization that aims to provide therapy programs and services, to establish an environment where children with special needs are loved, accepted and nurtured. On the other hand, Senator Win Gatchalian proposed a bill that is entitled as, "Inclusive Education for Children and Youth with Special Needs Act of 2016." The said senate bill's goal is to offer public education system to the million excluded special needs children. 

To initiate this campaign, schools offering special education should promote the activities and its effects to the students. In line with this, schools offering special education to children with special needs should raise awareness that this type of school, just like the regular schools, serves and encourages its students to reach their full potential despite of having disabilities. Also, the government should support the campaign to get rid of the bigotry experienced by the kids with special needs through the act of legislation and make education accessible for those in need. Furthermore, the change that we want to see should start within our own self. Making our self aware about their situation is not enough. We should be showing compassion and encouragement to these kids because this act of kindness may change the way they view themselves.
