Trigger warning:

This is as tough as it gets.

Landyn Ferris was a 16-year-old young man who had a seizure disorder and a developmental delay. His mother has said that she warned the school not to leave him alone or let him nap, because seizures were more likely when he was asleep. Allegedly these instructions were ignored, and Landyn died.

The OAC is working to support the mother, and has renewed our commitment to advocating for needs-based supports for all special education students.
