    6 months ago, my DD who suffers from long time, well documented PTSD, Anxiety disorder and Binge Eating Disorder, and is on medication for all of it asked her regular therapist to write a script for the extended time on the ACT. The shrink who owns the practice said because of 'past issues' (Greenwich, CT), as a practice we do not EVER write the script. Please see your pediatrician. The pediatrician said, why cant the shrink who she is actually seeing for it write it? We eventually just gave up. But clearly this scam has been happening for quite some time and docs are hesitant to go there.

    These two seem to be nice people, a nice couple, very talented and in the biz forever. They knew better. Too bad The Will Smiths didn't get a chance to do something like this. That I'd pay money for.

    So Mossimo Giannulli is worth an estimated $85 million and a couple years ago listed their bel air home for sale at $35 mil. They probably wipe their ass with 500k

    From what I read, that is almost exactly how it was discovered. They were initially investigating something else, and found this.

    A 504 may actually be what she needs, and 504s provide for testing accommodations as well. I would ask to meet with the school counselor to talk about possibly getting her on a 504.

    This couldn’t be happening to a more deserving twat. Nice kid you raised Aunt Becky. I bet she not only bought tickets to Frye, she was the one idiot who spent an additional $125k for the private yacht (dinghy) that sleeps 10!

    Here I am spending my weekends on the ball field with my kid so she can learn some discipline. Pfft. This really pisses me off and this is going to be the new talking point this weekend over at Fox News about the “disgusting liberal left” while Trump continues to lie, cheat, and run business scams along with his troglodytes. Kelly Anne Crypt-Keeper is already tweeting up a storm about this shaming the celebrities and @ them in tweets like a tough girl. She must have forgot that Jared benefited from this same exact shady practice over 12 years ago and when it was exposed back in 2016 there was crickets coming from the Whitehouse.

    ^^^Let’s not forget to add dumb as dirt Prince Coat-tail Rider aka Diaper Don to the list of Hypocrites embarrassing themselves today on Social Media....SMFH.....they literally walk themselves right into these jokes......



    Trump Jr also offered up a snarky response to Huffman, who tweeted: ‘What are you best “hacks” for the back-to-school season?’ To which Don Jr replied: ‘I’m learning some new ones as we speak. Stay tuned.’



    Mark Harris tweeted: ‘You were literally incontinent during most of your Ivy League education.’ In a book excerpt, Don Jr was purportedly known during his college days as ‘Diaper Don.’

    I'm sure Bill Macy knew this was going on. It's been going on for decades I hope they can put an end to this, it's so unfair to the honest people out there.

    The 504 will also transfer to college an IEP does not.

    I work with a lot of kids part time that have IEPs. I never knew that a lot of their parents would force them to get diagnosed at a young age so that they would get IEPs. Apparently in NYS you go to college for free if you graduate with one

    Native New Yorker here--- absolutely not true. There are various academic scholarships available, especially if they major in SPED. NYS also has The Excelsior Scholarship.

    At least it only cost Huffman and Macy 15k to get their spawn into a good school, not half a million like aunt Becky.
