Autism and the R-Word

Lately I have considered the R-Word to be hateful speech. Yet some people out there really do not care. In Ohio, you will find that the R-Word has been removed from all places where people with disabilities work and has been replaced with "Developmentally Disabled". I have been blessed by Special Olympics. I am thankful that I can be involved in team sports. Lately I have been involved in bowling and bocce ball. This year I have been in the skills events to eventually make my way to the team events (basketball and softball).
