Hi everyone, new to the forum. We have a 6 yr old in a talented and gifted program and he has having considerable issues in 1st grade. The situation continues to escalate. After a meeting with the principal and counselors today we know know we need to have an evaluation done. We're meeting a school psychologist tomorrow and will start the IEP process. I understand the evaluation can take some time. What do we do in the meantime? This is so hard on him and on us that I have contemplated just keeping him home... but it's a long time.
