On the next few pages are speeches, poems, and essays written by girls, boys, and teens who have a difference themselves, or who have sisters or brothers with a difference. They've all DONATED THEIR WRITINGS so that you could get some ideas about how YOU could do tell others about YOUR difference, too!!


Pretty cool, eh??  If all these kids and I STILL haven't convinced you, though, you might want to read some articles I wrote about "Coming Clean" about your TS in your class -- called "THE BIG SECRET!!". Click to see Parts I and II.

I hope that YOU decide to let YOUR class know about your difference now -- it'll make YOUR life better TOO!!


See ya,
Dr. Dunc!
