i was talking to my easy child's former dance aid who is a student teacher is k-garten class. she was told that it is district policy not to test this age group even if the teachers suspect emotional impairment. ? sorry but that is exactly why my difficult child didn't get anything more than the school sw observation after i asked in writing for her to see him cuz i knew something was not right. i know it is a moot point now but what about all those kids coming in the school in the future? is this a general policy everywhere? now wonder there are so many of us with-1st and 2nd graders just scrambling to get help!
