      I am writing to ask if you know of any scholarship/financial aid or government grant money programs available to help pay for the education of my special needs daughter on the high school level. We live in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, City of Philadelphia.

      I have come to the realization that in approximately 1½ years I will “have” to enroll her in a private/special education high school where her academic needs can be better met. Presently, she is:

      • 13 years old;

      • enrolled in a 7th grade Learning Support classroom at one of the School District of Philadelphia neighborhood schools;

      • has been educated in the School District of Philadelphia since Kindergarten;

      • reads at a 2nd grade level;

      • has a 4th grade math ability;

      • has an IEP that is being followed, but her reading has not improved very much since 3rd grade; and

      • has a diagnosis of ADHD, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Sensory Integration Dysfunction, and mild Oppositional Defiance Disorder. She was born into an orphanage in Romania where she lived until her adoption at the age of 25 months.

      I’m learning that she will not qualify for most of the independent special education high schools, in and around the Philadelphia area, because she is academically too far behind.

      Providing I can find a school that will accept her, tuition expenses (not including books, transportation, etc.) will run between $23,000 and $37,500 per year (2008-2009 tuition). Financially, these tuition rates are impossible for me to pay (single mother, older daughter in college) and I am hoping to be able to obtain financial aid/grants from a government source, if available.

      I would appreciate any information you can supply regarding funding this education. Thank you very much for your cooperation.
