I truly believe now after all that I'm going through with my kids in different ways that these are the reasons one should advocate testing. While we didn't have issues that weighed heavily, we do now.
It took some convincing, but the Board of Education is sending me the paperwork today to fill out for the testing. They will also arrange the occupational therapy that I already received the prescription for.
Monday we have an appointment for both of them. I feel like after a week of phone calls and talking we're getting somewhere. Is it always this hard? Well, I think it'll be helpful even if it's frustrating sometimes. But I totally get why at some point many feel like the need for testing became inevitable. I never thought we'd need it, but it seems like perhaps it's helpful. Now I see why. Thank you all so much for all of your support. I'm relaxing a bit now that there is a plan in motion. =D
