I forgot to mention there was a couple of times when I wanted to wear a hat. I got a really nasty cut on my head, and wanted to cover it up. I didn't want a big white bandage on my head going LOOK i got in a car accident or have to explain it to everysingle customer that came into the bank. So I asked my manager if I could wear a hat, he laughed and said no. So I called my doctor and told him I needed a doctors note so I can wear my hat at my place of work for a couple of weeks. Explaining what was going on and how I cut my head. I grabbed it on my lunch break and went back into work gave the note to my manager and placed my hat on top of my head. He called his manager, and his boss told him to just leave it alone.
I believe anyone with AA or AU or any other Hairloss should be given a choice. Meaning we didn't have a choice to be bald. That being said any Child or Adult with Alopecia has the right to wear a hat, and I could get any number of doctors that would sign you a doctors to to allow it
Hey I would like to know if you got the problem handled with your son not being able to wear a head covering? When I was younger my mom took me to a doctor and told the doctor being able to wear a hat would help reduce my stress level and maintain good cover during the cold months and keep my head protected during the hot months. The Doctor pulled out his pad and gave me a doctors note, and gave his personal phone number and said have the VP, District Manager call me if they want to make this a problem.
And if you want me to help you I will I had to get a note like 7 times in my life to be able to wear a hat.
being younger than many on this website if your son would ever like to speak with someone who has gone through such situations I would not mind at all to speak with him via this website aim or anything else. I really hope this situation will work itself out. I have had alopecia universalis since I was 3 years old and have had no hair since I was 6 so i can relate to many things I am not 22 and have just a little better outlook on my past and coping sratagies. If anything I am here to lend you my support as well and I hope that the school system realizes how completly horrible they are being...God Bless
