LAUSD serves about 60,000 special education students and some parents of these students are worried about what will happen to their care if teachers strike.

Rosa Andresen is a single parent living in South Gate. She cares for her disabled 20-year-old daughter, Amanda Andresen, while also working a part-time job. Amanda is non-verbal, wears a diaper and needs help walking - which means she needs constant care.
