He says the next step is to write a letter and to resolve the issue but says they can deny her requests and deny her a license which would lead to a hearing. She tells the lawyer she is in limbo until this is resolved but her lawyer tells her that the whole process could take a month in the best case scenario. Chelsea is bummed because that means she can’t work and has a new house and a daughter to worry about.

She asks her what they should do about Allee’s wheelchair because the issuance company doesn’t want to approve it because she’s not old enough to determine whether she needs it or not and Cory isn’t pushing the issue because he’s not a big fan of the wheelchair in the first place. She also talks to the therapist about Allee’s awareness of her disability and asks what she should tell Allee. The therapist tells Leah its up to her and Cory about what they wanna tell her but suggests that if Allee is smart enough to ask about it they should tell her whats going on and maintain an open line of communication.
