NS father wants you to think twice about using the R-word
A father of a child with special needs wants you to think twice about using the R-word. Robb Scott lives in Greenfield, near Truro, with his wife and three kids. Turner is their middle child. Turner is three, and he has Down Syndrome. This is a video Robb put on YouTube about why he no longer uses the word "retarded" to describe something silly or dumb.
Robb and his wife Kelly spoke with Mainstreet's Stephanie Domet about life with Turner, this video, and reactions to it.
