How would you take all this now???

So i have been telling everyone for as long as i can remember i felt there was something wrong with my daughter i couldn't quit put my finger on it but being a mom you just know when something is wrong..so all these years i have told our doctors i have told teachers i have told anyone that would listen to me i just felt like there was something not right...they all kept telling me the same thing..kids are all diff they all learn and grow and do things diff..okay so i said fine ..now after all this every year i have said something to the teacher my daughter gets or the speech teacher etc..etc.. our docs ......now i get a phone call Friday from her teacher expressing concern about my daughter..saying she thinks she needs to be evaluated and there may be a learning problem and she loves how she is just a ray of sunshine..etc.etc..but she feels she needs some testing done after the school break ..i say thank you I'm very overwhelmed right now ..and tell her how i have always thought there was something..and hang up and just start crying..i just feel if they would of listened to be in the beginning maybe my daughter wouldn't be so far behind now and maybe i could of been able to help her better..i am just very overwhelmed by all this..how would you handle all this now after all these years of trying to tell them??

  • No i understand after all that advocating for your daughter someone finally listens and you are supposed to b happy! i think not.......she has been the one suffering so y be happy. I feel your frustration. i have three special needs children we are their only voice don't ever stop believing your mommas intuition!

  • I had lots of problems with the school district when my son was first in school. I knew he needed testing & they refused. He ended up repeating first grade. I got so frustrated with them we finally moved out of the district. In the new one, they tested him right away. I was very grateful they listened to me. I feel if the other school had listened to me, he wouldnt have repeated a grade but, there's not a lot I could do about it. I just went on & made sure he got every help they offered and anytime after that I felt things weren't going well, I was right up there having another meeting with teachers. I made sure they listened by making myself seen & heard as often as necessary. Good luck to you.

  • I guess you are not shocked. At least she will get help now. I will go and tell all the docs and others to wake up and open their eyes. Good luck and hope the problem is not to severe.
