"Just because I can't talk like you doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to hear what I am saying."
Mommy, I Wish I Could Tell You What They Did To Me In School Today is a glimpse into the minds of 10 different children with varying disabilities through the eyes of one of their closest friends. The author has worked directly with these children and because most of them can't speak for themselves, he has given us an idea of what they might possibly say. All of the scenarios discussed in this book are based on actual events. While some of it may be disturbing, the hope is that the reader will learn what can occur in an effort to make things better in the future. This one-of-a-kind book is a must-read for anyone socially, emotionally, or professionally linked to any special needs person.
For his entire life, the man affectionately known as "Mr. Rick" has been selflessly giving his all to help others. His empathy, understanding, and compassion have combined with his natural ability to make people smile to form the perfect mix of tools for him to use toward his goal of making this world a better place. He has endured many hardships in his life, and while some might use them as a crutch, Mr. Rick has used them as motivation. Over the last decade, Mr. Rick has turned his efforts toward helping children with disabilities. After many years, he has written this emotional and educational book in an attempt to use his experiences as both a precautionary tale and a guideline for the future. Mommy, I Wish I Could Tell You What They Did To Me In School Today has enabled Mr. Rick to become a voice for the voiceless. He has already touched, changed, and helped so many lives; through this book, he hopes to continue to do so.
