Psycho-diagnostic evaluation for Arik
Ayelet, 38, and Roi, 43, are raising four young children (ages 2-13). Social Services has been involved in the family’s case for many years due to emotional issues, financial hardship and parenting difficulties.
Roi works as a hired hand and brings in a small income; Ayelet, who has serious emotional and psychological issues, does not work outside of the home and receives a full disability stipend.
Over the years, Social Services has tried to get the family into therapy, but Ayelet has always resisted.
In the meantime, their innocent young children are paying a heavy price. Both the social workers and the children’s teachers report that the children are anti-social, are displaying learning difficulties and often cut school. They strongly believe that psycho-diagnostic evaluations are in order.
Arik, as the oldest child, is the most worrisome. If Ayelet and Roi could get help paying for his evaluation, he could get the help he so desperately needs.
