SErious problem with my Grandaughter Sienna Villeneuve

Dear Mr, President,
It is a true honor communicating with you and I really appreciate your time. I am a loyal supporter and defender of your policies for the past years. I am a senior citizen living in Medford MA and my family is suffering due to the poor special needs department in our city. My Granddaughter age 14, Sienna Villeneuve, has been struggling to get her educational needs met within the Special needs department in Medford MA. Her family has been trying to work with the special needs department but for five years have not been able to communicate with them as to what Sienna needs. They keep saying she is all right when in actuality she is struggling and not being educated to fulfill herself. Her self esteem is so diminished that she had been actually bullied in 5 documente instances.The family would do litigation but has no resources and so we have no recourse but to turn to our elected officials and media. This as you probably realize is not just my Granddaughter but many other children within the cit and country.. These are the children who will tomorrows dropouts and some day fill our prisons and hospitals. I would so like to tell my story to someone who can advise me. I know you understand the plight of parents trying to give their children every opportunity. I can be reached at or 781-395-8614. I truly trust that I will hear from you or someone to help with this crisis.

Sincerely yours,
Josephine Carbonaro
