TELEJAH Bowen's family is hopeful the $3 million in transitional funding announced by Education Minister Nick McKim last week will go some way to helping her.
The bright seven-year-old has cerebral palsy and needs assistance with most tasks.
However, she is not on the severe disability register nor falls in the IQ gap of between 55 and 70.
Until this year, Telejah had no additional help at school.
She featured in The Examiner in July because her family was ``sick and tired'' of the on-going battle to see her get additional help, although they don't blame the school for the lack of funding, just the system.
Telejah's grandmother, Bronwyn Parry, said she was in the process of being thoroughly assessed, something she believes has never occurred, and which she believes will go a long way to helping the school, help her better.
Ms Parry said she had been told children like Telejah would be getting some additional funding for their schooling needs, although nothing had been confirmed.
``I'm hopeful that it will include kids like Telejah,'' she said.
``If it happens it will be a really positive outcome and fantastic for her.''
She said the thorough assessment had given the family confidence that Telejah was being looked at as a whole person, not just her IQ, and that the best education plan would be developed for her.
