Dh and I are trying to compile all our out of pocket expenses for the past year. Apparently we got enrolled in something without our full knowledge that withheld a certain sum of money for medical. Whatever we spent out of pocket on medical we can submit for a refund up to that amount. So if we do it right the eval and some other expenses should be reimbursed. If we didn't already exceed the total when we're done adding it up then the glasses I got the kids this month should be covered.
texasmama, the proactive stuff with the school sounds good. Glad that you offer input to your son when he is receptive. Same for Canadian Mom. FWIW, I always seem to run out of time on tests. Even if I know I have to pace myself, I just can't answer stuff as fast as necessary. I am not proud of my ACT score but it didn't hold me back, either.
Well, we just got our phone call! On the plus side, we have specific dates now, but on the down side it's just an autism evaluation. I should have known that government funded would not get us more than that! There's no ID, therefore they will not do an educational eval. Looks like educational evaluations will have to wait for the future and will be out of pocket
Forgive my ignorance, what does the educational evaluation entail or what are you hoping to learn from it? I am sorry they aren't offering you everything you were hoping for. I do hope you can find a reasonable price for one. Paying out of pocket is no fun.
