My 4 yr old daughter was diagnosed w/SPD. She also has speech problems (apraxia), she is lactose intolerant, & her airway narrows approx 30%. We have insurance, but they refuse to treat her stating, not a medical/physical problem.We can barely afford the speech therapy, we've had to cut her back by 1/2. The pre-school won't treat her as she has not had a major melt down. Small ones yes, major no.
My husband got laid off after 18 yrs at his job & has only been employed for 2 1/2 months in the past year. I've tried medicaid, we make $400.00 too much a month, so that was no. They don't take into consideration that we spend more than that on speech therapy. I give up! We've tried treating on our own, but she is going backwards not forward.
She's never slept thru the night, which is crazy since she won't go to sleep until 10-11pm. She's up by six. I'm on the verge of a breakdown. Crying daily cause I feel like I can't get assistance even though we know what her problems are. We have papers from doctors, etc. Where can I go? Any suggestions.
