I'm a mother of a autistic child. I've been having problems at work for taking too many days off here and there for fevers, meltdowns, pediatric appointments, evaluations, touring special schools. I'm also a cancer survivor who has to go through routine testing. My job is forcing me to give a letter of resignation. Due to the fact I received a $200 paycut and a increase of $200 in my tuition it's been hard to make ends meet. I'm stressed and depressed. I owe 2 months in tuition. I'm a month behind in rent, and owe electricity. I'm so depressed. If I quit my job and decide to take my son out of daycare and care for him at home are there any services that can help financially. I did apply for Disibility for my child and they said he was legible. My son had a severe meltdown. They asked me is this how he is at home. I told them yes as well as in daycare. They asked how many hours? From 8 to 6 pm. They said that was too many hours for him. That I should consider getting a part time. I think any job will give me a problem. You see I have no family living close by. It's just me and my boys. Dad works 6 days and he does help as much as he can. Please let me know of any programs I can apply for.
