Are there resources for getting rid of lead paint?
We live in an old house. We can't afford to move. My son had mildly elevated lead levels when he was around a year old, but no one told me until they were already going down on their own. He has a delay in his verbal abilities, and there's a good chance he has learning disabilities. He had behavorial problems, but his behavior is getting better, and he's talking more, he's just behind where a normal 3 year old is in some areas. Today, we got a letter saying that our 9 month old daughter's lead levels are also raised, and I do not want her to end up having the same problems that he did. So, what can be done? Can we make the landlord do anything about it? The biggest problem is that the paint is chipping really badly in our room, which is where our daughter sleeps too, but there's a bunch of other places where the paint is starting to chip, in almost every room of the house. Is there anything we can do to minimize the problem ourselves?
