“Wait and See” can be costly for children who struggle in public school, especially in the primary grades. Parents report to us that a kindergarten teacher indicated concerns and told the parent to watch the student during first grade. During the child’s first grade year, the first grade teacher said the child would probably need to be tested and suggested the parent go get “medical” testing done. Now, the student is in second grade and the parent has completed the “medical” tests yet the school district does not initiate any testing of the student although the student struggles and has handwriting that is illegible.
See how our kids can slip through the cracks? It’s important that parents know how to work the “system” so that the years don’t slip by. Parents need to be proactive when the child has special needs. The “system” works slowly so a parent needs to be one step ahead.
