Timed testing and kinders

It's nearly the end of the school year here in Aus, which means end of year DIBELS testing. The joys!

My ASD kiddo simply does not 'get' timed testing. Our letter name fluency test today went like this:

Me: Ok, are you ready? Remember to try and read as fast as you can. We have one minute so we're going to try and be quick!

Kid: Yay! I can be really really quick!

Me: Great! Ready, set go! *starts timer*

Kid: G.....R.....A.....Hey look Miss M it's a ladybug *picks up passing ladybeetle*

Me: Ok, out the ladybeetle down. Keep going!

Kid: P.....S.....Miss M, did you know my tooth is wobbly?

Me: Yes, now keep going! What's next?

Kid: Is the tooth fairy real? Thomas says she isn't....
