I am not sure this is the right place to post this - but I am wondering if anyone knows of any type of financial assistance available to help home-school when you have a child with special needs who is not doing well socially/emotionally in school. I have been trying to find a job since September 2012 when my youngest started all day Kindergarten. The problem is I have not been able to find anything that will accommodate my difficult child's circumstances. I need to be able to get him to and from school, and be with him when he is not in school - he will not tolerate any type of before/after school program or summer program - and he cannot be left alone. So basically that leaves me with a part time job at the school district. I was able to get hired as a classified sub (filling in for various positions like adult crossing guard, lunch/recess supervisor, etc.). It's something but definitely won't pay the bills, as it those positions are usually just a couple hours per day. So is there anything out there to help parents financially in situations like this? He is still attending school in our district but I am looking at options and either way - it is a financial hardship not being able to work a regular job. We live paycheck to paycheck with husband's salary.
