NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Schools remained closed due to coronavirus in Illinois and many families continue to report the challenges of e-learning.

Mersim and Theresa Kosovrasti live in Naperville and are parents to two children with special needs. The Kosovrastis told WGN News e-learning is not working for their family and their children are quickly falling behind.

“We don’t treat these kids the same during the normal time,” Mersim Kosovrasti said. “Special needs kids, special accommodations.”

Kosovrasti’s children have autism. Danny Kosovrasti, 20, is non-verbal and Alex Kosovrasti, 17, has a limited vocabulary. Both have individual education plans in Naperville School District 203.
