My Friend’s Story Made Me Realise How We Mistreat People With Learning Disabilities

People with learning disabilities are treated very poorly in India, mostly due to the stigma that society has against them. If the stigma is addressed and people become more comfortable with those who have learning disabilities, their lives would become significantly better. Right now, quite a few of them live in homes for people with learning disabilities.
While in these homes, they may be treated respectfully, but the problem arises when they are outside these homes. Most of the time, they are treated poorly by the public.A student in class 11 in my school shared an experience he once had with me.
