Why is this such a hassle???
Why does getting help for my son have to be such a hassle??! I called our new case manager just now to ask if there is any program we can get Nicholas into while we are on a never-ending waiting list for UW. She asked me what level his self-help skills are at. I will tell you where they are at....NOWHERE!! His language is at best at a 12 month level. I just cannot fathom waiting anymore. I have been patient,and accomodating-it is not getting us anywhere fast. I must hound and hound if I want anything for him. She told me "Well,there is not many things out there for him" WHAT???!!! That cannot be!! If I must, I will call these people in charge of programs directly. He is covered through the state disabilities program, he is covered through the military-he is on at least 3 different programs for disabilities.
I got her to agree to a meeting at home with us next week. That is a start at least.
