I have a struggling student who is in need of a reading specialist. However, it is extremely expensive and her parents cannot afford it. Are there any similar or alternative resources that are free that I can tell the mother to try?

If the difficulties are very significant (e.g. suspected dyslexia) I would look for some source of funding for a specialist - see if there are government programs or anything.

Otherwise perhaps you can get a reading specialist to act as a consultant, meet occasionally to assess and give strategies that parents or a young tutor could implement

Does she have P3 services? We took dd to a P3 therapist after school for 2.5 years and she spent the majority of the time on reading and BH got her up to par.

IIRC, Naaleh has an on-line (I think Skype) tutoring program that is much cheaper than regular tutors. They also have at least one reading expert who is really excellent. Check them out, if it's relevant.

She does, but she needs someone who really specializes in decoding.

Call Sara Schnirer. They sometimes have graduate students working under the guidance a master teacher and reading specialist who need students to work with.

If the student has dyslexia, there's a school in Brooklyn that specializes and the student can go for a year or two and then return to mainstream setting. They work with the Orton Gillingham method. You would need a diagnoses. They help you sue the DOE to pay the extra part of tuition.

Any child of normal intelligence who has difficulty learning to read had dyslexia.

I am a SEIT and a reading specialist - have had much success in teaching dyslexics to read. Also taught kids with down syndrome to read.

I am in BP and can give a reduced rate of $25 per session. You can PM me.
