This is Melody Brooks, she was 5 years old when her parents found out she had a disability which kept her from doing your everyday things like holding toys or walking.
They decided to get her tested so that she can go to school it showed her different pictures of different things, She had different ways of describing Them. The doctor was not smart enough to understand so he classified her as profoundly retarded.
Someone then offered her a spot at Spaulding Elementary School where she was classified into special ed and each year a new teacher would switch out to her needs.
Melody then tries out for a school trivia competition. She answered 25 out loud questions from her teacher and out of the entire class she got the highest score!
After melodys competition she came home and cried because her team really upset her. her parents decided to take her out to cheer her up but they could not find her little sister penny. She had ran out the door and walked behind the car. When they got in the car after not being able to find her, Melody screamed to try to warn her mother that she was behind the car but it was too late, Penny got ran over.
After school melody was overwhelmed. Everyone had knew about penny, Penny was at the hospital and comes home, Turns out she has no brain injuries, no wheelchair just a tiny red cast around her leg and a new red hat, Melody was so happy she wasn't disabled in any way now she can share her story with others!
