oh I know what you mean! I've got littler kids (3 and almost 5) but I know what it is to pretty much lose it. The little one is PDD and sensory, and the older one is super-intelligent, incredibly...

I say 'ds's brain works in a different way". Then if she's interested, we talk further, about how he learns in a different way - he has to have teachers to come to the house, for example. Ds (3.5)...

definitely just stick to your guns. They will try, most likely, not to give you services. Once a kid is in the system it is harder to get him out, so they try to keep kids out - it only makes sense....
