Things are certainly different in BC than here in Ontario. 6000.00 per year sounds wonderful. Not that I don't get that for Alex - the group home costs a heck of a lot more than that. But for Kyle I had to fight for 3000.00 per year. Even though he had a IEP they tried cutting the service back from what it said on paper. For many this is successful but I am a lass who took advocacy courses and knew just how and who to contact so we always pretty much got what we needed just never without a fight. The government here has pretty sneaky ways of cutting back in fact what the say they deliver. Age limits, time limits, it takes forever to appeal, paperwork galore, etc. They are very creative indeed.
