Psycho-didactic evaluation for Meir
Ya’akov and Rachel have 15 children, five of whom are under age 20. Ya’akov used to learn in a Kollel, which gave him a monthly stipend, but that stopped with the onset of the Corona crisis. Rachel worked as an aide to special needs children until, 17 years ago, her daughter was diagnosed as autistic. At that point, Rachel stopped working in order to stay home and care for her. The family now relies on state stipends as its only income, so they are in a constant financial struggle.
Currently, one of Yaákov and Rachel’s young sons, Meir, needs to be tested for special needs. He is set up to start at a new school but without these test results, his teachers cannot craft an appropriate academic strategy for him. Unfortunately, the testing is expensive, and Ya’akov and Rachel are unable to cover the cost.
