Let me say that V has a wonderful teacher. She does so many accomodations and in such detail that it would be hard to list them all in a this thread. All of them have been listed in V's 504 plan. As today was his first day with the Isense FM system, i talked with his teacher early this morning and explained how it works. She then asked if I had a few more minutes and we walked out of the class in a quiet area. She explained that V is having difficulties with reading and writing. Blending sounds is extremely difficult for him (his Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is working on it 2x week). He has the usual on and off days which I keep track in a journal so we can better gauge it over a long period of time (the teacher tells me everyday if it was a on or off day). V never has behavior issues at school, it's just that some days he simply cannot learn. He goes in outer space. She said that the gap is getting bigger and said she was glad we have a scheduled team meeting at the end of the month. I'll receive his quaterly report Jan. 17th and we'll meet afterwards. I asked her if she thought we should launch school testing for learning disabilty. V has been classified (by the school AND his therapists) as being at risk for specific learning disabilities. She said that it probably was time to do the testing. The gap is big enough now that testings should reveal something and qualify him for services. She added that the only reason the gap is not bigger is because V has benefited from early intervention through private therapists and myself. Always nice to hear some one recognize it! My question to you: what tests should I request? The Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) tests were done less than a year ago so the school should be able to use them. The ADOS and SCAR did not reveal his Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) though. They used other standarized test to diagnosis V (tests relating to theory of mind). I was told by an advocate that the school could not pretend to offer better Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) testings than this university. So what do I ask: put V in a Autism category? Just specific learning disabilty? V is not classic in any way and I'm not sure what the best course of action should be. All I know is that the teacher has my back and will help V any way she can. Having a free advocate come to my remote location is probably not doable at this point. The Autism society said that they would do it if things really don't work. Right now, I can have phone conversations with them, that's pretty much it.
