Greetings...Placer County in northern California here. Don't know what a difficult child is yet. I have a clue that the rule is to not directly share what our dilemma is...there are codes for that (somewhere). Have been the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) route in Utah (all out of pocket) and wilderness in Idaho (also my dime). All kids adopted at birth. Researching advocacy attorneys today and ran across this site...seems promising. Would love to read the "Cliff Notes" or "Reader's digest" version of how to navigate this site.
