I'm not a physician, but I do have a child with CP. CP is a very generic term which involves
motor disfunction. Through my child, I have been able to wotk with CP children and have
NEVER seen a case where only one part of the body is involved. Some areas are simply more
involved than others. It should also be pointed out that many CP individuals are extremely
intelligent and some are slower mentally. HOWEVER, there is NO EXCUSE for ANYONE
touching you inappropriately, CP or not!!!! If Chad is a "Special Needs" student, then it is the
responsibility of both his parents and the school to make sure he understands the differences
between what is and is NOT acceptable behavior. If the problem persists, DON'T WAIT!!!!....
notify your parents and the School Administration of the problem. The school or parents (his)
should be able to control the situation, whether it's having an adult monitor him or in the worst
scenerio, remove him from the area. DON'T BE AFRAID TO SAY SOMETHING!!!!!
: Hey guys! OKay, I need info and opinions quick! here's the deal:
: I am a female student at a middle school. A male student(Chad)in my homeroom has touched me and my best friend inappropietly. My friend (Adryien) and I have gone to two teachers and have discussed the situation. The teachers simply said that beause Chad has CP, he cannot control his hands. Afterwards, Chad has touched me once more and Adryien twice more. Each time, we have gone to the teachers, but still, they refuse to listen. They continue to say that it is because of Chad's disorder. Recently, I had a little chat with Chad's cousin, Brittany (who is my age), about his condition. She said that his case of CP only affects his legs, and has nothing to do with his hands.
: So, Adryien and I have written a letter to our teachers (we havn't sent it yet) about the situation. However, we feel that unless we have dire proof of Chad's specific case, they'll still not believe us. So, does anyone know where I can find info on a situation where one's legs are affected and not his hands? Yes, it's a pretty narropw search, but any info I can find is useful. Also, if anyone knows about this kind of thing from their minds, please share it with me! Otherwise, Chad *will* get away with sexual harassment. Please, either write your responses on this MB or e-mail it to be personally! PLEASE!!! THANK YOU!!! :)
