I am so angry! I just found out that the going rate in my area/state for a private assessment of Dyslexia is $5,000. And that's just for a legal assessment and diagnosis, not help... That's thousands of dollars more per subject! We can't afford anywhere near that amount, so we won't be doing it. But we can't just sit back and watch our son fail the 4th grade either! Especially when we work with him so much and see how he's trying so hard! We are looking into getting an advocate to go back to the school with to demand proper assessment, diagnosis, and help. We've found one I think will get us what we need. She has a dyslexic son too and knows what it's like, and she's a little like a bulldog with bark and bite if you know what I mean... When we are done getting what we need for our son, we will go at them again to get what we need for our youngest daughter! I refuse to give up on my children! It just shouldn't have to be so hard!
