Before & After: The Perez Family
A choice for virtual gives these children a right to the education that best serves them. How would you feel if you were their parents?
Our Sons went through intense ABA therapy to adapt in society, when the pandemic struck, we felt a bit overwhelmed not knowing if or not our sons will be able to learn with this type of education remotely. What a great difference in all areas. We were told that our son who was diagnosed with alopecia Universalis at age 5 that he will never grow his hair again, it wasn't the case for him he did grow his hair. Since going Virtual 98% of it is back and we started to understand that the reasons for him losing his hair was stress related. We feel that his class setting while in person was causing this amount of stress. Every time I heard Parent's say how awful the experience was for them during remote learning, we couldn't relate since we had the opposite experience with it working for our sons, why isn't this an option in NJ? Now my husband and I ask ourselves do we want him to go back and risk the chance with him losing his hair again at the age of 10. This year was a great success in an overall. The teachers were super, and we worked alongside with them. Parents are capable of learning to be a coach to their kids if they let us have this as an option. We hope that it does become an opportunity for parents to choose.
