ACC - Back to School Documents

To all of you who have e-mailed me, sent requests for ACC documents, etc., I apologize that you have not received a response from me. My husband suffered a serious cardiac arrest and he passed away. At the present time I am not able to manage sending out information and answering e-mails.

UPDATE: September 13, 2014 - Due to the death of my husband, and the considerable amount of care that my son who has ACC requires on a daily basis, as well as the many other tasks that now require my time and attention, I am very sorry to say that I will not be able to reply to emails or send out information anymore.

I hope that this blog will continue to be of some help as a resource about ACC, ACC support groups, and other information. Thank you very much for your understanding.

Kids and School and Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum.

This is a repost because Fall is right around the corner and that means - Back to School.

Below you will find a list of ACC Educational documents that are available.

I will continue to add any new ACC documents that pertain to education to this page so they are all located in one place and easy to find.

If you are aware of a helpful document about ACC and Education please let me know by leaving a comment or sending me an E-mail so that I can add it here.

Please consider sharing a comment below mentioning the type of information, about ACC, that you share with your child's teacher.

I encourage you to include any details about specific information that you share (as well as how you present it to your child's teachers and school) because that type of information is very helpful, and it gives a variety of creative ideas for other families, reading this blog, who have a child with ACC in school or about to begin school. Thank you very much.


  1. Sandie - It's been awhile since I've caught up on writing/reading blogs. I saw your note just now and I am so very sorry. You and Matthew are both in my family's prayers.

  2. Jody, Thank you very much for your kindness and also for your prayers for my son, Matthew, and I in the recent, unexpected loss of my husband/Matthew's daddy. It is so nice of you and we truly appreciate it.

  3. Sandie... I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. I have no words as I absolutely cannot imagine the emotional waves. Even after a year, it must still be difficult. I'm praying for you both.

    I wanted to thank you for this blog. Last year, I sent my son's young 5's teacher the link (as she had never heard of this) and she was so grateful! I will be sending the link to his Kindergarten teacher this year as well. Thank you again!


I am very interested in reading your comments and
look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
