Embrace your differences ❤️☮️

There is no right definition of being normal we are unique and that is what makes us who we are . we should never feel embarrassed or ashamed of being “different” because it’s what makes us unique. we should accept who we are there really is no right definition of normal because normal can mean different things to different people. we should embrace our differences because it makes the world a more colorful place and that is what makes us human .

EMBRACE YOUR DIFFERENCES ☮️❤️

Much kindness and peace- Hiba

Well said, we are all unique in our own way, 😊❤️🌈

Hi, I really liked your post and agree fully with your comments. I would also add something about inclusion. The benefits of inclusion are numerous, not only for children with special needs and their families, but for ALL children and adults. Children learn from each other early on. Through good practise they will learn acceptance of other people and their differences and that each person has unique abilities. Some of the benefits of inclusion for children with or without disabilities are friendship skills, peer models, problem solving skills, positive self-image, and respect for others. This can trickle down to their families, friends and others in the community while teaching everyone to be more accepting of differences.

Kindness, peace and understanding to you Hiba.

That is true 😄❤️ Thanks for adding on I appreciate the reply

Very true. I saw how this affects children when I taught in primary schools. 🙂🌸

You obviously have first hand knowledge Marnie and understand the challenges facing children who are deemed to be "different". Teachers play a huge part in enabling children in their care to understand these "differences" and to provide inclusive opportunities for everyone.Xx

I wanted to add what you said if that is ok with you 😄

RoadRunner44 in reply to Hb2003

Of course you can Hiba, I am glad you feel my reply is worthwhile.I loved working with young children, many who had many disabilities and special needs. I also worked for while in a school for autistic children as I wanted to learn more about The Autistic Spectrum. It was challenging but very rewarding and made me even more determined to provide understanding and an inclusive environment for all the children in my care.

As you speak so passionately about this subject I do wonder if you or someone you know has had a difficult experience at school or college. If so I would be happy to talk to you about it, perhaps over a private message if you prefer.

How was it like if you don’t mind me asking I have very bad experiences with special education teachers

Marnie22
Marnie22 in reply to Hb2003

I wasn't a special education teacher in the normal sense of the word. I was an infant and primary school teacher in mainstream education, then I worked for a charity teaching young people from 5 to 16 years old who had severe emotional and behavioural problems. They were children who needed to be taught one to one, (sometimes a child might need two members of staff.) We didn't work in school type buildings, we had small houses where only two or three students worked with their staff. Apart from educational subjects we taught them about their needs and feelings and how to communicate their needs to others in acceptable ways. Some of the students had things like ADHD or Asperger's, others came from backgrounds where there had been abuse of various kinds or parenting which hadn't taught them how to deal with life in general and their own feelings and behaviours in particular. Most of these children had very low self esteem and needed lots of caring and encouragement. 🙂🌸

My late wife had a ballet, tap and gymnastics school - and I helped with the gymnastics.The young often came in with their older siblings - so we met some students when they were a week or two old - and ex-students (some after they had completed a university degree) came in to help e.g. when we had concerts.

One child used a walking frame in ballet class, and one was very ADHC - he wasn't usually much trouble, but once, when he was dangerously interfering with the other children, I picked him up, kicking and screaming, and took him out to his mother.

Sometimes it takes years and years to learn that uniqueness is a good thing and not something which should embarrass you! Thanks for reminding us of that Hiba and well done for learning this much earlier on in life! 👍🙏
