Some students come to school with labels such as “ADHD”, autistic, poor, quadriplegic, or super-star. The reality is, the label only describes a fragment of how they show up in the world. We must remember that “ADHD” is also an incredible artist and tween with a loving family. “Quadriplegic” is one of the most clever and funny kids you’ll ever meet and the “super-star” is also an incredibly picky eater who yearns for more friends as most 10 years old do.
We are all more than our labels.
