My 3rd grader has a disconnect between the basic skills of reading and what she 'gets'. Her understanding is WAY above grade level but the mechanics of reading do not come easy.
I have dealt with the school district (speech with my older child) and refuse 100% to do ANYthing with them. There is TOO much red tape to get anywhere and then there are labels that the child must deal with for the rest of their academic life.
We make enough to hire someone privately to test her but Im not sure where to start. Her teacher couldnt help. Im going to call the ped. tomorrow morning and have emails out to my friends who are teachers in the area. But if anyone has the title of a type of therapist to contact.. that would be helpful.
