Good! I hope things go the way you need them to. Seems like schools are only wanting/able to do the bare minimum.

As far as I know they've never done an actual IQ test on Lina.

If a child has language delays the standard IQ test is not the best tool because the results will be deflated. I can't remember the name of the test that should be used instead. My son had his IQ tested when he had the ADHD screening and the verbal section pulled the score waaaay down. I wish I'd known to ask for the appropriate testing because his results are useless to me.

They should redo the testing (as long as you agree) every three years. I don't know why there would be a fight.

My sons triennial testing came up just recently and they automatically scheduled the meeting to discuss it. We decided not to test this year (for a variety of reasons) and the team was on board with our decision, but it was made clear to me that it was our decision (my DH and I) and that if we decide we want the testing at any time, that we can request it at any time. It was also made clear that his services and eligibility would not be impacted by our decision not to test at this time. If his eligibility had been dependent upon testing, we definitely would have.

My DD has never had one before. She is 11 and SN. She is delayed in a lot of areas. She can't read yet either. Or begin to sound out words to spell.

I should request it though. Not sure how in my area though.
