Houston cheerleader with Down Syndrome prevented from cheering; called ‘liability’

A miscommunication between a mother and Deer Park High School officials that almost prevented a freshman with Down syndrome from cheering appears to be resolved.

Brittany Davila is an honorary cheerleader on the freshman squad at Texas Deer Park High. Her mother says when they arrived to cheer at an event Tuesday night, school officials told them Brittany could no longer be part of the team because she was a liability.

“Being a parent of a child with special needs, the last thing you want to hear is your kid is a liability for any reason,” said Mrs. Davila.
