So I waited a little while before posting this because other stuff was going on in my life, but this is baffling. We visited a specialist in Learning Disability (LD)'s who works for a non-profit organization in WI. They will tutor and teach Learning Disability (LD) children for free (if income allows) and our income (cough) allows. We brought the very nice man, who has NOTHING to do with the schools in WI anymore (he is retired) Jumper's test scores. He looked at the test scores and drew a graft of her scoring. She did NOT score as Learning Disability (LD). He said that the testing doesn't lie either, that there are trick questions to get the results. He told us that almost all the kids he sees are bright kids who score very low on these school tests. An example would be that Jumper's IQ tested out at 106. To be Learning Disability (LD), she'd have to have scored in the very low range, indicates that she is performing way below her intelligence. However, she didn't. She scored about right. The teacher spoke in debt with Jumper who insisted that she can't read and struggles with math. He askeds her how her spelling is because, strangely, THAT was never tested. She said it was not good. He asked her how she felt her grades were in relation to her peers and she said, "Horrible." She said shes can't remember anything. This teacher said he was going to allow her into his services. He said he believes that she can't read or spell well and that she struggles with math, but he isn't sure why. Testing indicating that she should be able to do well. He encouraged us to keep the appointment with the neuropsychologist that is set up for her to maybe give him more clues so that he can find a good way to teach her. He was more than kind and we are waiting to hear from him to set up a summer schedule. Jumper's only diagnosis. has been ADD (inattentive type). However, although it makes some sense, it doesn't make sense too. Don't most ADD/ADHD kids struggle with social skills? Jumper has GREAT social skills. She always had. Everyone knows her and likes her. At prom, we watched while taking pictures, and all the kids of all grades went up to her to hug her and tell her how great she looked. She is considered extremely popular, yet she is a very good kid who does NOT make impulsive decisions. She makes good life choices. The only indications of ADD are her lack of ability to organize, her poor recall when she studies, and her inability to pass tests without looking at notes. Any guesses as to what is going on with Jumper? She is puzzling everybody. She clearly does not have any form of austistic spectrum. She is certainly not bipolar. She is not a defiant kid any more than any typical teen. Yet she struggles so badly in school and always has. We are going to have her looked at closely when she is tested for forms of dyslexia to maybe explain her reading/math problems. Jumper is a delightful child. A mom is not supposed to have a favorite child and I would not say I love her t he most, but I honestly like her the most of all my kids. She is that kind of child. Why can't my baby learn? Will she ever reach her goals? She wants to go to college to teach physical education and she wants to play sports in college. I would love any good feedback from all of you warrior moms.
