Got the call from the school psychologist yesterday- we should be getting a call from the social worker to schedule a discussion and then, if we agree, she will evaluate DS. Then we will discuss the results and recommendations. Sounds not very comprehensive; where are all the tests? What tests will be done? Some folks in the NYC area have told me they only run the tests they think is needed... which is messed up because this psychologist already has a bias based on what she has heard of his behavior "he should be in a smaller class", "he is immature", "we need to get him situated somewhere good within a month", "this place is not good for him", etc. Our advocate told us to let the school do their evaluation and we will reject it and get an independent evaluation through NYU. I'm one of those people that like to tackle challenges as they happen, and now I have to wait wait wait. NYU told us the next available parent appointment is at the end of November; the evaluation would follow afterwards and run a few weeks. If we can expedite the school evaluation to 30 days, we're still looking at January for the independent evaluation.
