Lucas was diagnosed when he was 4 1/2 just as he started public school. He is diagnosed between a level 1 and 2.
He has been on he wait list ever since until a month ago. He is receiving 16 hrs of private ABA therapy. I chose to pull him out of school two days a week because the school board has not been able to give him the supports he needs. The current EA in the classroom is just too busy with kids who have higher needs.
My son will continue to fall behind in the education system. And at $15,000 for 6months (16 hrs a week) of therapy, we will not be able to keep up with helping him succeed where others continue to fail him.
He has been given a chance to succeed in life and it’s been ripped out of his hands before he can even start.
