He is finally starting to read at the close to 2nd grade level, but he really is going into 4th this next year, but really should be a 5th grader….. he has so much work to do. What can I do— are there grants, is there a way for the school District to pay? Can I get insurance to pay?

He is ADHD also, and needs 1:1 instruction 4 hours a day for 5 days a week for at minimum 220 hours, and so I withdrew him- he does not receive, OT, Social Work, or support in school, but I pay a very high price tag to send him to Lindamood Bell.

He was not given any in
