I hate to be a forecaster of doom and gloom.  but I've never in my 
entire life seen this happen before.  Don't hold your breath.  I don't 
think insurance companies regard literacy as a medical issue.

Don't lose hope here though.  My next suggestion is that you have people 
either rewrite you offlist or call you at home.  Not knowing where you 
live, I'm not sure how to plug into the resources around you.  However, 
my home phone is: 443-315-5080.  You can call me and we can get started 
from there.

Have a wonderful day!!

My daughter is now in private school (yes, we have already tried public school) and getting it through the school district is not an option at this point.  Her IEP/ ISP calls for 10 hours of Braille instruction per week.
