Chris, I appears that you have stirred up alot of deeply felt feelings. I would like to hope that there are schools out there where everything is wonderful. Where parents ask and are told most certainly Ms so and so we'll get right on that testing and in the time being we won't time any test your child takes and limit writing assignments to only completely nessessary ones. Thanks for letting us know of your concerns. Okay I'm awake now .....But as you can see by reading that is not what happens most of the time. I was trying to catch bees with honey and look where is got me. My wonderful, sweet, smart, funny 3rd grader is failing writing, science (his favorite subject) and spelling. He's taking meds that we don't want him to take and he tells you how stupid he is. When I talk to the school they tell me that spelling and writing are not an issue they worry about with testing because now a days with computers and spell checks everybody can write!!!! That his ADHD is not reason in itself to be qualified for assistance. And if we keep giving him double time to do his work he'll "get better". Well I'm not going to stand by any more and listen to all the crap they have to say. And so I am aggressive for the first time just think where we could be if I was a person to be agressive from the start! Another dream Shari

Subject:age

I don't think it matters how old the teacher is. Age doesn't mean anything, it's how much you know. I would be offended that someone didn't think I knew what I was talking about based on my age. That aside, I do believe you should do what you think is best. Parents know their children better than anyone. She definitely should not have said she was "certain". The right thing to do would have been to say "I feel.......but if you are concerned you can refer him for testing."
