Young people with mental illnesses such as anxiety may not be capable of going to disability services to ask for help because of the very nature of their disability. Requiring these young people to advocate for themselves when they are not capable of doing so is like asking a young person in a wheelchair to climb the stairs to get to the disability services office.
Secondary educators need to maintain the same high expectations for students with disabilities as they have for other students. This is not happening.
