Are our children receiving enough help?

I also am getting help through my medical insurance so she gets occupational therapy one hour once every two weeks and speech therapy one hour once every two weeks. I'm sure this is all going to help her and she already seems to have made great strides, but being a simple person myself, I have no idea when enough is enough or when to get her more help. Although I believe the people in the school district are caring and helpful, I am also aware of the fact that their resources are extremely limited. (Oregon has the shortest school year of the nation, so the news tells us.) Are they only giving her one hour a week because it's best for her or because it's all they have to give? It's hard to know! How do we know if our kids are getting what they need? Do you struggle with that question? I find myself constantly thinking about it and wondering if I should be doing more or I should just sit back and see if what I have works.
Thanks for your thoughts!
