I'm a mother of two little boys. They both have been diagnosed with speech and developmental delays. Last year my oldest who is now 8 was diagnosed with being under the autism spectrum. Now I'm going through the same thing with my 5 year old who was recently kicked out of a school for having bad behavior. He has yet to be evaluated but seems like he is heading towards the same direction as my oldest. My concerns is not that I will have two kids under the "spectrum" is that I haven't been able to find the resources to help them with their challenges. I'm a stay at home mom and unfortunately my family lives on one income which doesn't cover all the treatments and therapies my children need. There is just so much the schools can offer and I know that if I had the means to provide them with outside help, they could benefit and maybe overcome some of the challenges they face on a daily basis. My question is if there is any type of government funding for kids under the spectrum? Please help! I just want to get them the help and intervention as early as possible. Thanks and God bless!
