My Autistic Daughter Was Abused at Her School, & We Need Help So That We Can Move School Districts!
I'm a single mother of two wonderful children, and my young daughter is autistic and requires special care. Recently, I had to face something no parent of a special needs child ever wants to face after hearing that my autistic daughter was abused at her school. When I reached out to the proper authorities at the school district about the matter, they responded at first with apathy, and then, they began to make life very difficult for us in the school district. As a result, we now have to move to a different school district in order to put this situation behind us.
I'm disappointed, sad, and outraged that the school district and the staff, who are responsible for protecting students like my daughter, have failed in that role. I could go on, but I know that the best option right now is for us to try to move on to another district so that my daughter can get the proper care and educational attention she needs without suffering abuse. We face a daunting task in terms of moving because I lost my job last year due to the pandemic, and I haven't been able to find permanent work since then. We were getting unemployment benefits until those were exhausted recently, and now the only income we have coming in is when I can get appointments to do clients' hair occasionally. Right now, I'm doing my best to come up with the money for a deposit on a new place for us to live, but I'm still on the hook for our current place's utility bill and need help with that in order to free up money for a deposit.
With this help, we'll be able to find enough to put down money for a new apartment, thereby getting my daughter to a school district that will respect her and her needs. Every child deserves the right to an education without the fear of abuse at a bare minimum, and this help would restore my daughter's right to learn as any other student would be allowed to do. I want to thank you all in advance for the support and compassion you have shown my daughter just by taking the time to read our story. I will never forget your kindness.
