I have serious doubts about difficult child 1's counselor having all the cards for a full deck. The school received my letter requesting a (thank you TM for the wording here) "full and complete MULTI-DISCIPLINARY evaluation." So when she called me today to discuss the upcoming meetings and who would be there, I asked if the speech/language specialist would be there and the counselor was clearly taken aback by my question. The counselor hadn't even thought of it. I pointed out difficult child 1's consistent problem with group projects and suggested maybe there was a social skills component or evena language pragmatics component -- I didn't know, I just wanted to make sure we left no stone unturned. She agreed it would be a good idea and said she'd make sure that person was invited to the meetings. Sheesh. I wonder what else she hasn't thought of?
