April is national child abuse prevention month. Statistics show that children with disabilities of any kind are at greater risk of being abused or neglected. On March 30, 2017, students and staff “planted” beautiful blue pinwheels on the grounds of The Special Children’s School to raise awareness. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. The pinwheel has come to serve as the reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention in 2008. The Special Children’s School shows their support by planting pinwheels each April.
