Beth Teams up with Special Olympics

Beth has been named as the Educational Ambassador for The R-Word Campaign UK. A movement being imported from the U.S aimed at promoting inclusion and respect for people with Learning Difficulties.

In association with the Special Olympics, the campaign has already benefited from the support of the stars of ‘Glee’ and ‘Scrubs’.

” I feel so honoured to be part of “The R Word” campaign in the UK.  One of just a number of words that is unacceptable to be used in everyday language , it’s time to stand up and acknowledge people with learning difficulties as the valued members of society they are.” Says Beth.

About bethryanmedia

I am a single parent of two children with Autism. I have had my struggles much like most other parents. I had to give up my teaching job to focus on my children and now I'm back completing my Masters Degree in Special Educational Needs (Autism). During our struggles I found that timely and relevant support is hard to come by. This journey is a long one and our needs change. I re-started this blog to share a real life situation with others like me. I hope to be able to help others and plan on supporting parents in any way I can when I return to work.
