My daughter is 6 years old and she has a dual diagnosis of Autism and Retts. Her genetic testing came back very unusual and something her neurologist has never seen before. She really doesn't fit completely in either catagory. She has no speech. She still wears diapers. My husband and I feed, bath and dress her. She basically is a 6-18 month old infant. She just started kindergarten this year and I am already looking to the future. She is currently watched after school by the YMCA. I just so happened to ask them yesterday to what age they watch children. They only watch through the 5th grade. What I am to do after the 5th grade. My husband and I can't afford for one of us to quit our jobs. We live in O'Fallon MO. If anyone knows of any place that watches children that old please let me know. I am worried that if I am to find something it will be so expensive that we can't afford it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
