So we homeschool, i.have four kids, two school age. My 7 year is who we all suspect has spd. We homeschool through a charter, so we are apart of the public school system. I jjsy had a conference.call with our educational specialist and someone on.a.department for psychological needs i believe. Pretty much they said at the moment they cant pay for an evaluation or services because he is not struggling academically. They suggested contacting our insurance company to get therapy (which they.believe he needs). Also. Last time i called regional center said the school district is responsible for evaluations etc. So pretty much it looks like its all on us. We do.have a follow up meeting in late feb, early march. I need suggestions. We dont all this money to pay for OT and any other therapy needed for him, and i want to nip.it in the butt now!
Another thing is they are going to help give ne tips on how to do schooling with him. One suggestion was to give him a quiet space to work. My educational specialist suggested a corner in his room. With four kids, and a very small space, how do I make the most.of our day? We do do a lot of schooling together as a familu, but certain things like math and reading can.be a challenge with a baby and 3 year old.
Moms.with children who have spd or autism, do they have sleep issues? Do you have any tips on helping them sleep.well?
