Just a quick note to say hi! Michelle, I dont agree with the advice you have been given. I just had my 7 yr old tested and I didnt like the results so I denied it and asked for them to retest her. The first answer was no, then they broke down and said they could test her with a different IQ test. The first test came up 75, the second one didnt test the same way. She is a visual learner so they gave her a test that could test her in her learning ability. She tested much higher. Now we know she isnt MR but SLD. You can also ask the school system to pay for an independent Pysch. Your pediatrician can send you to a neurologist who will refer you to a neurocognitive eval. There are ways to find the answers and get arounfd the school system.
