I had a great opportunity recently to give a long (five hour) ride to a DAN doctor. This guy has been put through the ringer by the medical establishment for trying unconventional approaches, and almost lost his license to practice medicine. One saying he gave me regarding how most folks who can affect the services that our kids get, including school districts, is that if their not up on it, their down on it. That pretty much summarizes our experience.
What we have found most useful is to realize that the school district only has certain services that it can provide without getting into a legal struggle. It helps to learn what those services are and see if you can make your program work within them. Most of the OTs, speech therapists and learning specialists are delighted to learn about the Son Rise Program. So we try to get everyone on board, so that they are up on it. The service that has been most helpful is an individual aide. In our area, it is so difficult ot find someone to be an aide due to the low salary that we were able to recommend the person. One aide was a volunteer, and one actually was someone referred by the school principal who loves our program and the results we have seen.
Anyone I ever talked to that got a home program funded had to hire a lawyer who had experience in getting these programs funded. It seems to work easier in some districts and parts of the country than others.
