The rules forbid discrimination because a child has a wetting problem The reality, however, is often very different. My daughter was 7 and still having accidents; the doctor we saw about this told us there was nothing wrong with her, except her bladder was a little immature.
The school didn't want to hear that. After recommending home schooling, in the next several months, the school officials made us see another doctor (who prescribed Oxycontin) , see a psychiatrist and had a child protection officer come to our home. Thank goodness I kept detailed records--they stayed for a few minutes and left with an apology.
Their next step was being asked to attend a meeting of four school officials who insisted that my daughter wear diapers constantly when in school. I was able to get a note from the psychiatrist they sent us to stating that this would severely traumatize her. At this point I pulled out the big guns and sent a long letter to the Board of Education. Suddenly all the problems went away. A couple of months later my daughter was accident-free.
