It can be very disheartening to realize that your child is having difficulties in school. You may find it helpful to get academic and achievement testing for your child.
In order to do that, all you have to do is write a letter to the administrator or the child study team leader and request testing. It will take a while to go through the process, so be prepared to wait. When testing is complete, the results will give you a big picture of where your child’s strengths and weaknesses are.
Testing results may indicate that your child qualifies for special eduation services. If this is the case, you have to choice to say yes or no to services. You will be given a document that explains your parental rights in full detail.
Remember, starting the process of testing may take a while, but the information can be quite valuable and give you a type of roadmap to see where to go next.
