I would be really nice if we had a program like ESY, I think she would really bennifit from it.
As for holidays for the rest of the year we also get 2-3 weeks at Christmas depending how it falls, 2 weeks in the spring, one week at Easter, and every long weekend has a pro D day attached to it.
Ah, Canada deals with their special needs population differently I guess. What does your federal law state about serving this population in the schools?
