According to a recent infographic compiled by UKS Mobility, nearly 26% of disabled people report having had a negative experience at school. Bullying is a common complaint voiced by disabled children, sometimes even as young as seven years old.
To improve this situation, parents have to make sure that they teach their non-disabled children about diversity and the need to treat everyone equally – no matter whether they come from a different country, believe in a different God, or has some physical or mental disability. Schools should also be equipped with the right mobility equipment and teachers should be trained in special needs education.
