Jill Posted February 29, 2008 Share Posted February 29, 2008 I feel like a complete doofus right now. I have made more than half a dozen calls this morning to my school district and spec ed units, trying to find out if they will give me any help in getting an evaluation test for my son - a Stanford Binet or WISC or such. I live in a rural area, small towns etc... now I feel like _everyone_ knows my business and it makes me nervous. I worry about the Tall Poppy syndrome. I am just about in tears! I don't want to short-change my son and if he would thrive doing something like EPGY or another program, I want to know - I want to check it out - it seems like such a good idea if he can practice all the math he desires (he played math computer games for 2.5 hours yesterday, 3rd grade level - it was challenging but he kept at it and wants to do it!) and especially good if he doesn't have to do it all the while struggling with the handwriting aspect! oh I'm not even certain why I'm posting except that it fills me with such anxiety to be sticking my neck out I guess... and I'm wishing I had just scheduled the darn test and be ****ed with the expense! Can someone give me a verbal slapping about to bring me back to my senses and snap some confidence back into me??!?!?! - Jill Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
