Response to Heartstrings (Original post)

Tue Jul 7, 2020, 03:25 PM

52. My 4 year old Grandson is on the Autism Spectrum

 

He has not received any mandated in person services since March, and has regressed back to biting himself, his brother, and parents. Also, not verbalizing. Sit him in front of a computer to learn his ABC's and 123's?

My daughter is at her wit's end and FURIOUS with Cuomo. Some Summer Camps have re-opened but they will not take special needs kids. No TEENAGE Counselors should be in charge of these kids anyway. They need trained PROFESSIONALS. Grandson needs Special Ed Teachers and Paras, Speech and Physical Therapists, ABA Specialists. One size does not fit ALL.

Grandson will NOT wear a mask at all and will bite himself until he bleeds, OR the person trying to put one on him. Opening schools, apart from other issues with these kids, there will be a MAJOR problem trying to keep them wearing masks and "social distancing".

So for your fears about coronavirus, what do you propose to do with these special needs children not receiving their mandated under Americans with Disabilities Act services? Bring back the Willowbrooks, put them in there, and throw away the key? All because the ONLY thing that matters is to protect YOU and YOURS from the virus?

This Granny is also Retired Special Ed Para. Damn, I am not even supposed to come into contact with my Grandson because of this virus, BUT I have and tried to do my best with him. I am 71, live over 100 miles away and cannot be his 1;1 Aide.

Stop thinking about just yourselves, people, and walk into someone elses shoes. It isn't just about babysitting.
