Individuals with Duchenne may act
in ways that are socially unexpected.
They might fixate on ideas,
avoid eye contact, interrupt repeatedly,
not talk at all, show hyperactivity,
meltdown when changing activities.
The list goes on…
It’s not purposeful disrespect.
It’s not manipulation.
It’s not bad parenting.
It’s Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Accept them. Include them. Love them.
Even if they don’t meet society’s expectations.
