"Mother of a beautiful artistic 15 year old daughter struggling in her academic classes. I've been advocating for her since the age of 7 and currently live in a county located in NYS that has no programs available or rather the funding is not available. We are to the point where she has nearly given up due to the lack of interest that our school distrist has for children with learning disabilities. My income is limited but just want to say that this site has surprised me with all the information that's available . The problem is none are offered in Schenectady county. "
