Friends, We took my difficult child to a School in MO. The first thing they did was take him of medications. So far he is doing really well. It seemed like the main priority of the therapy he was receiving before was to integrate him back into the family (which was not working). I now see that is too small a goal. At 15 1/2 he needs to figure out what he wants to do with his life. Integrating was a great Idea when he was ten now he needs to focus on his path, and if that leads him back to our family as a respectful member great if not then that's okay too. Does anyone know about sources of funding. We just sucked downa $30,000 SLM loan to cover this year and then we are on the hook next year for $1200 a month. This could go on until he graduates in 3 years. We have SSI for him and that helps a little with the expenses outside of tuition. Are there mental health grants or charities out there to help a family like ours. It's like sending my kid to GA TECH in the 9th grade when I wasn't expecting it.
