hi i have a almost 4 year old son with autism who is completely non verbal no words at all he has 6 signs and we just had the developmental preschool eval and iep case conference. well the lady we had go with us suggested that we get a lawyer to get the school to pay for ABA therapy but lawyers are expensive and we are tapped out. my son is getting 6 hours of ABA therapy for free until we hear back from our insurance company about our appeal. may 19 is the day they gave us . we just got allergy testing done to see if my son has celiac deasise which was expensive the school wants to do pecs with my son (he can not discriminate between pictures so the slp suggested 3d objects which could possibly work however how functional would this be) i dont see how 3 d object will stay on velcro and to transport it would be really awkard the riley hospital slp wants to do the vantage light well this is about 9 thousand dollars i am not even sure my son can do this. we have a crapppy iep i feel developmental preschool is way to advanced for my son and they wont give him an aide i feel like i am in a loosing battle and to top it all off we need to get him in pt and ot and that coast about 100 dollars a session.
sorry for all the rambling nothing sems to be going our way any thoughts suggestions
