I am so angry! I've just found out that the going rate in my area/state for private assessment for 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 of money 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 him 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 that I think will get us what we need. She has a Dyslexic son and knows what it's like, plus she's a little like a bulldog with bark and bite, if you know what I mean. Once we get what we need for our son, we will go after what we need for our youngest daughter! I refuse to give up on my children! This just should not have to be so hard!
