Dorinda, I can't wait to hear about some of the things you are learning. Unlike most of the others I have heard about, we get no special help for our kids. We sent them to an occupational therapist in January at the suggestion of my sons Kindergarten teacher and that is when we first heard of Sensory Itegragtion Disorder and Aspergers. We had just the 2 boys going once a week, but the insurance only pays 30 percent and by March we had racked up over 1200.00 in OT bills. We had to stop taking them. My neighbor has a boy that is exactly like my 4 year old and he gets all kids of special programs, social programs ect.... they get it all for free. We make just enough to not qualify for any help, but not enough to pay for it on our own. Any info you could share with me would be great!!
Do you have a medical diagnosis? Do you have an educational diagnosis? If not get them....this can lead to more services provided to you thru the school system, including OT. Check into it. Have the evaluations done byt the educators and a Dr.
