Kate Gosselin Sends ‘Special Needs’ Son Collin Away From Home
'This has been a struggle we've had for a very long time.'
Kate Gosselin is taking extreme measures to get her son Collin the help he needs. The Kate Plus 8 star revealed she has enrolled her 12-year-old son in a program away from home years after denying he was expelled from school for abusive and violent behavior.
“Collin has special needs,” the mother of eight told People. “[There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own.”
Collin is “enrolled in a program that is helping him learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be,” she continued. “We miss him so much, so it’s been hard because there is a huge hole in our family without him here. But it comforts us to know he’s where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that.”
