Report content RSS feed Petition for Devyn

Posted by on

My mother runs a forum dedicated to those who are using diet therapy as a means of controlling epileptic seizures. One of the users on my mother's forum, Heather, has a daughter with epilepsy. Her daughter, Devyn has Angelman's syndrome, and is on the Modified Atkins diet to control her seizures. She's an amazing little girl who's been brave and strong throughout her battle with epilepsy. Devyn has a service dog, who helps her during seizures and her everyday activities. She is also accompanied by an aid, since Devyn's condition impairs her speech abilities.

Unfortunately, the school Devyn studies at has refused to allow her service dog to school, stating that a student may only have a service dog if they are able to verbally command the dog. Devyn's aid on the other hand, is perfectly able to control the dog, and has stated on numerous occasions that she'd do whatever it takes to accompany Devyn to school. However, the school still stubbornly refuses to allow her dog access into the school. Not only is the school denying a student her medical needs, and barring Devyn from getting her education, this is also a case of brutal discrimination against an individual who suffers from a physical and neurological disability.

We need your help to sign a petition so this situation will change and Devyn will not be denied the medical service dog that doctors have determined she needs. Every child deserves the right to the best life possible and Devyn's service dog ensures her quality of life and education. She needs this dog! Sign the petition today!

Thanks you both so much for your help and concern. There's nothing in life that can quite compare with helping someone in need.

Okay, gaming comes pretty close...
