Being a special education service provider, I have gotten used to learning of strange syndromes that can afflict a child. I thought nothing could surprise me anymore… I was wrong. At one of my elementary schools a profoundly disabled 4th grader (functioning around a 6 month level) has actually succeeded multiple times in popping his eyeball out of the socket with his own finger!
I guess it’s a common occurrence at home but it happened for the first time at school yesterday. Fortunately, I was not there and didn’t see it, but from what I heard the nurse and classroom staff were frantically looking all over the floor for it (because it magically disappeared). I think he finally realized it didn’t feel all too good and somehow popped it back in himself.
If you can do without a visual aid DO NOT click here…. (although I know you want to!)
So disturbing on so many levels, yet you gotta admit it truly is an amazing feat.
