Sensory Anxiety

Our doctor provided a medical exemption for mask wearing but the school’s accommodation was a face shield. This was a worse sensory experience for my daughter. She tried wearing the mask and taking breaks outside more frequently but was unable to regulate herself. She is normally able to function in a mainstream classroom but could not handle the face coverings. We had to pull her from school.

You didn’t “have to” pull her from school. You made a great decision that countless families have already made well in advance, and you saved your daughter life.
YOU SAVED YOUR DAUGHTERS LIFE!!!
