Nicky went back to public school this year. He started 3rd grade on Monday. I went in with him today and we did a little 5-10 minute presentation all about Alopecia. I was very nervous standing up in front of 70+ 3rd graders as I'm sure Nicky was too. But we got through it and it really seemed to help. When I took questions one little girl asked me if she could catch it from Nicky, another asked if he would die, once I went back and explained that he was otherwise very healthy and not contagious other children began telling us that they had asthma, wheat allergies, etc, etc.....
It all and all went well I think..... we will see how this year goes.

great job about going to your sons school and talking to his peers about his condition! I hope all goes well with him as he goes through the 3rd grade
