The best people
to tell you what services and devices your child needs is
probably those on your child's Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
Committee, but their organization, school district, etc. is also
the one who has to pay for it. The Federal and State Governments give them money, but it is never enough.
Unfortunately, services get watered down. Teachers,
therapists and paraprofessionals get stretched too
I try not to
whine too much about this because my son is lucky to have good
services and excellent staff! I also have not made an
effort to write letters or lobby for more funding even though I live
fairly close to my state capital.
