Reagan Wright, who is nearly 14, is devoted to all things American Girls, and dreams of becoming a veterinarian. For a child with autism spectrum disorder, Reagan is considered high-functioning.
Which isn’t to say, her mother Emily Wright emphasizes, that Reagan is not a handful.
“There are social issues,” Emily said. “Troublemaking and keeping friends. She says inappropriate things. And there are outbursts. Lots and lots of meltdowns.” The Wrights pulled Reagan out of public school this year, and she now is taught at home through a state-approved, virtual school.
