It’s in Large families, life in XXL (TF1) that the Orgeval family has been revealed to the general public. Louise and her husband Kevin notably share their daily life with their granddaughter Noée (3 years old), suffering from trisomy 21. And since the start of the school year, this daily life has proven to be difficult for the parents.
Louise and Kevin Orgeval left the Paris region a few months ago to settle in Dax, a town in southwestern France. In their many steps, they had done everything to ensure that little Noée’s first return to school went well. Unfortunately, they have had to deal with setbacks since then. At the end of August, the mother of the family revealed: “You had to go to school with the little friends of your age and with an AESH (that’s what we call people who take care of children like you, with specific needs). And then we learn that a minor official behind his desk does not press the button that would allow you to transfer your file from the MDPH of Oise to the MLPH of Landes and to be able to benefit from an AESH. So no my little bichette, you won’t go to school on Thursday, or even the week after, or even the following month, because the MDPH sometimes takes more than a year to process a file.“So she and her husband had to make arrangements to stay with her, in their home.”Because that little civil servant behind his desk doesn’t press that button, our whole life is going to be turned upside down, and you, my little darling, you’re going to have to wait a long time until the world is really ready to make room for you.“, she continued.
Good and bad news for the Orgevals
Since then, the situation has been slightly unblocked, as Louise Orgeval confided on Instagram on November 21. Despite everything, this does not mean that Noée will finally be able to go back to school in good conditions. After clarifying that she had good news and bad news, she wrote, “The good thing is that Noée went to the MDPH commission and they granted 20 hours of support by an AESH. The bad news is that there is no AESH available in the department, and no budget available to recruit one. We knew this problem would happen. There are the big phrases for ‘doing good’, and the reality of what is really put in place on the ground.“
Louise Orgeval is outraged that “national education does not make this recruitment a priority“. “On December 1, we both go back to work and Noée will therefore no longer be able to go to school. one or an AESH is recruited so that she can come back to the school benches and see Mistress and her friends again. One more break to live and a new adaptation to do for her, and for us from the DIY to organize urgently to make up for the shortcomings of the State”she concluded.
