Are We There Yet?

raising the developmentaly delayed child

My twins have several delays in thier development. What I am finding is it is hard to do the things that your children need to catch up all the time.
We drive in twice a wek for speech and physical therepy ( about 60 miles a week.) Plus the additional work at home. I am glad to do this for them but find that dealing with agencies can be troublesome. All of our care providers have reccomended th guild school for the twins to get a social classroom type learning ( they are 21 months old) but when I called the school they said no. Why? They serve the Deer Park school district...but becasue I live 1 mile out of Spokane county into Stevens county they won't take my kids. Never mind that they recive state and federal funding...never mind that we wrok,shop etc. in Spokane county.
How do you get the resources your kids need?
How do you try to get the help your kids need if you keep running into road blocks?
How do you help you kids who need the extra attention while not neglecting the needs of your other kids?
