Special Education Amid COVID-19: 'It's Not That Kids Don't Want to Wear Masks, They Might Have a Sensory Disorder'

Special Education Amid COVID-19: 'It's Not That Kids Don't Want to Wear Masks, They Might Have a Sensory Disorder'

Amie VanMorlan lives and works in Columbia. She’s the incoming President of the local SEPTA, or special education PTA, a pediatric endocrinologist and the mom of Sagan and Damien.

Sagan is an upcoming senior, and Damien is an almost 7th grader who has Fragile X syndrome. This condition can lead to intellectual disabilities and autism, and is the leading inherited cause of intellectual disability.

Amie spoke about some of the ways Damien and rest of the family are adjusting to the world of COVID-19.
