03.02.11. Today is the official awareness day of the nationwide campaign to end the hurtful use of the “r-word.” Let's spread the word about how we can encourage acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities and discontinue the derogatory use of the r-word in our schools and communities. Our son Joey was born with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. Take a moment to look at all these beautiful faces and let's promote the use of the new r-word: Respect.

I've taken the pledge, have you? Join me in supporting Spread the Word to End the Word. It's time to put an end to hurtful and dehumanizing language. Take the pledge to end the r-word by clicking here.
