MD and I have been doing some research on "Special" schools for Devin. Everything from Military Schools to Schools designed to help troubled teens with ADD/ADHD, ODD and such.
What I want to know is how the average family could afford these schools?! The cheapest we have found is $3,100 a month in Louisiana, the average cost is in the area of $4,000 a month. And to keep him within a 3 hour drive of home it will cost $16,800 a year for the closet Military School. This of course is way more than I make a month.
So how can these schools stay in business? I mean they all seem to have pleanty of kids in the school to sustain them, so who are paying these kind of tuition prices?
So, we are at what they say .... an impasse. We can not afford to send him where he will get help on our own, and he is progressively getting worse in traditional school. Sad is it not?
