My son has Down syndrome. He is in a fabulous in home daycare, but finding one was a nightmare! I phone interviewed over 10 daycare providers. They all started off great. Until I said "Down syndrome". Here are some of the responses:
1. Does he look like a real kid?
2. We keep kids like him separate from the normal kids.
3. Did you drink when you pregnant?
4. Those kids cost more and we don't take them on our field trips.
I was appalled and very sad. Why are people like that? Has anyone else had a similar experience?
