Lauren decided she wanted to study theatre in college and joined the Army Reserve Split-Op Program to get money for college. Her inability to process multiple directions became her downfall.

The Bag Face Teacher discusses the importance of having a medical letter to support a 504 Plan.
The Child Study Team came up with five accommodations to benefit Lauren in the classroom. Teachers did not honor them. They didn’t have to, since it was a FAKE 504 Plan.
A Child Study Meeting was held at Lauren’s school to review over her medical packet. Lauren’s medical results had been scattered throughout her cum record. Fortunately, I had with me the actual documentation.
Finally, there was medical proof that Lauren had a disability. Lauren had CAPD.
I wish I had known more about good nutrition and drinking plenty of water, because it would have made a difference in the lives of my children.

My father had shared this information with me but I was too stubborn to listen (at that time!)
Lauren began to show defiant behavior in her kindergarten class at the private school. A teacher assistant spanked Lauren. I needed to know why???
