Well, something good came out of yesterday. I received another email about my son from the university. They can do testing on learning disabilities as well as dyslexia. The cost is $500. Not too bad considering my son's pediatrician said it can cost up to $2000. The hard part will be finding that money. My husband doesn't believe there's anything wrong. He didn't even want to look at the paperwork I printed or even discuss it. I don't know how I can ask for that kind of money. Especially since he already has the Xbox One pre-ordered which costs $499. Sigh...
In my response to this email I gave him my phone number in case the Dr. needed to discuss anything in advance and he called me. I just got off the phone with him a few minutes ago. He's very nice and wants to see the information on what the school had to say from their testing when he was in the second grade going into third grade. So I'm going to get that together and drop it off in the mail tomorrow, if not today.
The hardest part was telling my husband. Because he didn't want to hear anything about it before, so I had to word my email carefully, especially since I had to ask for $500. I received the typical response of "I'll see how fast I can pull it together." Which translates to "you won't see that money in a long time, if ever." He said the same thing to me about getting braces.
I replied saying that it has to be fast because he's needed this testing since the first grade and I'm tired of fighting with the schools and being told that he doesn't have it from people who won't read the paperwork I have (husband) and who won't test him (school system).
So I'm slowly getting closer to help my little man.
Sorry if this seemed like a jumbled mess, I'm really excited.
Wish us luck...
