Experts say kids with disabilities want to be treated like others

Children are children, and all children like to have fun. That’s the message that organizations that serve the disabled want the public to know. Their goal is that no child feels left out because he or she has a physical or developmental disability. Seventeen-year-old Zachary Zerone is impressive on baseball field, and he knows it.

“Got two trophies, swing hard, hit hard, and I run as fast as I can,” Zachary said.

Zachary is part of Biloxi’s Challenger League. The program is open to people of all ages with mental and physical disabilities free of charge. The city also offers soccer, basketball, a summer camp and more.
