Parents worried virtual learning won't do enough for Michigan's children with disabilities
September 21, 2020
Detroit district parent Sharmell Graves is worried her daughter will forget essential skills like holding a crayon.
Her daughter, a fifth grader who attends a school that serves students with severe disabilities, has cerebral palsy, which limits her motor skills. With the help of her teacher, Graves’ daughter was getting help with her muscle movements so she could perform simple tasks.
Right now, Graves is helping her daughter with coloring at home, but is worried her assistance is not as effective as what a trained professional would offer.
