Lakay Roberts, Texas 5-Year Old With Cerebral Palsy, Denied Use Of 'Unsafe' Walker At School

Lakay Roberts, Texas 5-Year Old With Cerebral Palsy, Denied Use Of 'Unsafe' Walker At School

Commented Mar 28, 2012 at 07:27:47 in Education

“The school doesn't say she can't use A walker. Just that she can't use THIS walker. I sincerely doubt we're getting the full story. Perhaps the mom has already been told that this walker has become unsafe and doesn't want to buy a new one.

We don't know why the principal stated she can't use that walker.”

“Can you please give your source for the school's position? It's not in the above article. It's not in any article I read. And this news article says the school said no walker at all, that the child must use a wheelchair. That's a medical decision and would set the child back medically:

Yes, we don't know why she was told no walker, because instead of answering the mother when she asked that question, the school official berated her, saying she didn't care about her daughter and challenging her to sue.”
