A learning disability in written expression. They probably would have labelled it dysgraphia in your time, but they donít use dysgraphia/dyslexia terms anymore in Ontario.

Yes, the price has gone up. The price for everything has gone up. Fortunately insurance covered most it it, because the wait time in public schools is years.

Yes, a school may prefer to to not include under-performing children to help their scoring. Iím not sure that happening here - she kicks butt in math, and now they wonít have her help to raise their math scores.

The school seems to be spending their extra funding on her - a Chromebook, extra software, one-on-one time, a scribe when necessary. Maybe *gasp* they actually care.

Done, and done.

Hey mom22girls!

I don't have much to add (because the responses you are getting are depressing and not surprising at the same time a) but I wanted to say kudos to you for doing all you can with your little girl and I know having a special-needs child is all kinds of stress.

Big hugs, you're doing a great job.
