... so maybe this is a little early.
Anyway I got to thinking this morning, that it is an evaluation for ADHD, Aspergers, Sensory Processing (I hope). This evaluation is with a Psychologist recomended by our local Center for Autism, so I don't know how much into the sensory stuff we can get.
I would also like to ask for an IQ test, because I am SURE what I'm dealing with is a Twice-Exceptional kiddo. As he will only be turning 5 in June, I realise its a little early to be doing an I.Q. test, but if he IS T.E. I need it to be part of his IEP.
Curently his IEP with the I.U. 13 is ignoring his sensory issues because of his intelligence and called them discipline issues. He is very fearful in certain environments, but they are calling his lack of compliance 'unwillingness'. HE wants very much to please them and would comply, if he were not fearful. Just because a child can say, 'No, I do not want to do that' doesn't mean that's the whole reason, kwim? (He uses very formal speech)
He is a 'quick study' and even I can see that after just a year, he is growing out of what the I.U. early intervention can offer. :sigh I have been planning to Homeschool all along, and so we have one more year of Early Intervention.
Can anyone give me BTDT, or suggestions as to how to incorporate everything into whatever treatment plan we come up with? If he gets bored AT All, he will stop working.
We also have him on the waiting list at the center for autism for a more comprehensive Eval, but there is not telling just when that will be.
