COLUMBIA, Ill. (AP) — A Monroe County judge says a southwestern Illinois school district must allow a 5-year-old autistic boy to bring his service dog to class.
I understand this child’s rights. I’m just wondering what about kids like me when I was little. I am still very allergic to some types of dogs. Depending on the breed I might not be able to be on the same wing, even now as an adult. I would have trouble breathing. Then sinus and lung infections could set in. My skin would react. It would be raw and inflamed. Then secondary infections
would set in.
Has anyone ever been in a situation that had to balance the needs of different children were serious health risks were involved?
