if they don't want to do testing-are the really going to do anything if you do?
I did ask when we had the meeting if he needs to be tested , they said no ..
From what i am sensing , they're willing to do something with him , in fact i thought the principal was very supportive about my son . We're trying to figure out about his behaviour , early september , only 2 weeks after school started , the school had a meeting with us , and said they would give him a different curriculum , maybe it'll change his behaviour , but from what i see nothing much was done , only the pull out program for 3 times 45 minutes , and the majority time would still be spent in the regular class ,that would make up 95% of the time at school just bring in the regular class . So they said starts in nov 1st , they will let my son go to 2nd grade reading class ..
Maybe they can do something , maybe let him go to 2nd grade for math on top of reading too , if i get him tested ? I really don't mind getting him tested as long as the school will help his education . So far it seems like i am spending money by paying private school which is not that cheap either , and my son coming home from school saying he doesn't learn anything new .. Everytime i ask what did you learn , he would say oh the regular stuff .. he said this back in kindergarten too , but it's my fault i didn't sense it that he might just be bored learning things he already knew !!
Back in kindergarten he wasn't in so much trouble like he is right now in 1st grade .. what am i going to do with him . At home he does very well , but at school although his grades are excellent , but his behaviour is just unacceptable .. and that becomes a problem . I hate getting mad at him at the things he does at school such as not keeping hands to himself , or talking .. stuff like that ..
