Psycho-didactic evaluation for Tehilla
Rinat, 27, and Shlomo, 33, are raising their two young daughters (ages 3 and 9) under very trying circumstances.
Rinat works as a medical aide to a child with severe allergies; Shlomo works as an air-conditioner technician. His salary is based on the amount of work available and is very erratic. Despite their best efforts, Rinat and Shlomo struggle to meet their monthly expenses.
Shalev, the couple’s youngest child, is developmentally delayed and attends a special needs gan. Tehilla, 9, suffers from social and academic difficulties.
The year that Tehilla began first grade, her family moved communities. This was also the year that Corona broke out. As a result, Tehilla fell behind in school. As the year went by, her academic gaps grew wider. After consulting with a neurologist, Tehilla was put on medication and began riding therapy.
The family’s financial stress, coupled with their daughters’ issues, has caused a lot of tension between Rinat and Shlomo. They began family therapy through social services and are also being mentored in sound financial planning. They are hoping to break their cycle of poverty and build a stable future for their children.
In the meantime, it has been recommended that Tehilla undergo a psycho-didactic evaluation in order to zoom in on her specific needs. Unfortunately, Rinat and Shlomo cannot afford this expense. Tehilla deserves our help so that she can get the help that she so desperately needs.
