School Reaches Deal With Family Of Girl With Autism, Service Dog

September 05, 2013

The Gretz family has reached an agreement with a school district after their daughter Shyanna, a six-year-old with autism who uses a service dog, was told that she had to change schools due to her teacher's allergy to dog dander.

She will return to the district next year.
