When Wynter had the neuropsychologist evaluation, she recommended an evaluation with an audiologist for possible CAD. Her former SD wouldn't do it and I was really, really sick (this was just a few months before the heart attack) and I didn't have the money for it, nor the fight in me to battle the SD. Since then - and I really regret this - a lot of things with Wynter have just been dealt with very piecemeal because of my ongoing health problems. So, now that I have my feelings of guilt out of the way..... I've really been noticing lately that I have to repeat myself *a lot* to Wynter. She doesn't have trouble hearing me, she has trouble understanding what I'm saying. By the third time I repeat something, I say it much slower and then she understands. I don't think I've really noticed that before, although about 4 years before the heart attack are really fuzzy for me. Anyway, she pointed out tonight that exact thing. That she hears it, but it's like it's in one ear and out the other, but when I say it slower she gets it. So...when we reconvene the IEP meeting, I'm going to request an evaluation with an audiologist. If there is some kind of auditory processing disorder it is definitely going to have an impact on her ability to learn. Plus, with the NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) characteristics, it's kind of like a double whammy. What kind of issues should I be aware of with the SD in that regard? If they shoot it down, what is my recourse?
