Lisa Juliar was resolved when distance learning began last spring: She’d do whatever she could to offer her son the kind of one-on-one assistance he’d been getting at school.
But even with her help, Cooper, a senior at Mounds View High School, has struggled mightily with distance learning. He has a rare chromosomal condition called Cri-du-chat that affects his speech and language, and he’s had trouble expressing himself during Zoom classes. He sometimes grows so frustrated he starts screaming, grabbing at his mother’s hair and even slamming the laptop shut.
