I absolutely HATE when we are told things like this. My suggestion is take a look at the psych report. In my experience, kids like the one you mention generally have very weak working memory abilities, visual spatial skills, and/or sensory processing issues. Make a copy of the report, highlight the specific areas which show this, and let your p have a look while you explain it to her. I had to do this with a teacher who just didnít understand why her student needed so much extra time (he had a very slow processing speed). She understood a little better after I talked to her. PP is right. This child deserves to have an education that builds on what she CAN do. Sounds like your p is grossly out of touch with reality!
