Total meltdown at school this morning. Bad day for it, as we were short-handed at work and I'm already short on hours as it is. 47 minutes to get her to a more reasonable state (they timed it, and I picked her up an hour and a half ago, she's still not totally reasonable yet). psychiatrist has steadfastly refused a referral to a neuropsychologist, as you all know. Just got off the phone with her insurance company, they're emailing me a list of providers somewhat nearby that can do the testing and I'm to tell them that THEY are referring her for testing. YAY! Luckily she already had an appointment with her therapist scheduled for this afternoon, so one less phone call and emergency appointment I'll need to make. And what, pray tell, brought on this meltdown? She was angry that she "didn't do well on her pre-assessment tests." i.e. she didn't have everything mastered. These are things that have mostly NOT been introduced to her previously (and was therefore not expected to know), AND she did better than most kids in her class. She says the other kids think she is stupid because of this. (Can you say distorted thought process?) It's not exactly like failing the SATs, geeze.
