Hi i am desperate! my wonderfull niece has a slight neurological disability that makes her twist her head sometimes and she sometimes speaks instead of only thinking things. she now got into 4th grade and the children there dont know that she isnt crazy and that she cant controll her tics. they make fun of her and bully her!! her mum (my brother's wife) dosnt feel like helping her at all. that she must learn to get through it!
my niece is a wonderful amazing young girl but theyll break her! what can i do?!!!

That sounds horrible! why is her mum not intervening?!

Ask your niece how she feels, tell that her mum. talk to her teacher!
talk to the parents of your niece's school mates! Do something! this will break her if it doesnt srop!

Dear Bonny

It is important that this child gets some sort of support. If her mother really doesnt want to intervene at school, it might help your niece to talk about it with you or someone else.
Ask the mother if it would be ok for her if you talk to the teacher. Try to work out what to say together with her and your niece.

Good luck and all the best to your niece
