Thank you for the interview, Roxanne Riggio! YOU ROCK!
In this interview you’ll hear from a woman named Roxanne Riggio and her mom, Patty, as they share Roxie’s message of banning the R-word. She strongly feels that people should stop using the R-word as it’s very hurtful to people with developmental delays or cognitive impairment. In this podcast episode she shares some of the struggles she went through (as an individual with ADHD and cognitive impairments herself) and why she’s insisting we all stop using the R-word. I hope more than anything you listen to her message and share with others the importance of banning the r-word.
Are you ready to make a pledge to stop using the R-word?
