Psycho-diagnostic evaluation for Kayla
When Hannah and Benny met, Hannah had three children from her first marriage. She and her children moved in with Benny, and the two of them had five more children together (plus one on the way).
While Hannah, 43, works outside of the home, Benny, 47, does not. He receives a monthly disability stipend, and the couple struggles to make ends meet. They have numerous debts that they are trying to repay, and their financial situation is dire. Social services helps the family in whatever ways they can and together they are working on a plan to improve the family’s situation.
In the meantime, 11-year-old Kayla is suffering terribly. She is showing significant delays in reading and writing. Her speech and language skills are not age-appropriate, and she is lagging behind her peers in math. Her teachers report that Kayla comes to school without the proper supplies and has poor hygiene. She has trouble socially, as well.
Kalya’s teachers are recommending a psycho-diagnostic evaluation in order to assess what kind of help she needs. Unfortunately, the cost of such an evaluation is beyond Hannah and Benny’s reach. With a little bit of help, this innocent young child can get the help and attention she so desperately needs.
