I found this story quite moving. I'm glad Ellie was given the chance to speak up on her mother's behalf. Wise teacher.

Only "bump" for me was the transition from the paragraph where the teacher is reading the essays to the next paragraph. Took me several readings to figure out the scene change. Maybe some asterisks or dots would help in that?

Other than that, excellent writing!
This brought tears to my eyes. You see, I have a son on the autism spectrum (which Asperges is, too, - at the other end)and I can so much relate to the thin gold chain of his life being wrapped up in knots and other things we don't understand. The gold is still there; we just have to search for it.

Beautiful writing - thank you.
