My guess is a no too. That doesn't have to do with health, but education. But your state may provide assistance. Here in NC there are tax credits available to homeschool families who need to pay for outside services.  I would suggest networking with others in your state to find out about resources. 

Good luck.

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.
