This is how you help children with disabilities: ‘It’s better to say something crazy than nothing’ | Family

Despite our commitment to inclusivity, children with disabilities often feel lonely. 3 in 5 of all disabled children say they would like to have more friends. They are also more than three times as likely to rate their lives as unsatisfactory as children without disabilities. That has to be different. “Even if you just say ‘hello’, saying something is better than nothing.”
