Please bare with me. I am on a cellphone and have not posted here in a long time. My daughter has many issues that I can discuss with you all in another thread. For the most part she is a normal 11 year old who wants and interested in the same things others her age. She is very behind her peers at school though. She probably just this year started comprehending what she reads. She still struggles big time with reading though. Math is easy for her other than word problems that she has to read and comprehend on top of solving it. Her school has always refused to do any educational testing on her. They love to tell me that they do not have enough data to test on her due to her absences. I promise you all as her mother I know deep down that her refusal for school stems from having ZERO IEPs. She is expected to understand all work just the same as her fellow peers. She gets embarrassed easily and shuts down. I was told that she would have to be at school for 8 weeks straight no tardies or absences for them to test her. I understand how outrageous this sounds but that is not possible at this time. I keep hearing that the school can not refuse testing when its requests by the parent. We are in Louisiana and her school keeps finding ways around it. Have any of you ever dealt with this? I have truancy blowing up my phone and all they want to do is make me pay fines rather than trying to help. I'm scared for my daughter. Getting her to school everyday for 8 weeks straight is not am option at the moment. She is terrified of going where it results in her vomiting in the mornings on the way there. Please only give me your experience with this situation. One of the main reasons why she fears going to school is because of bullying from teachers in the past years and from other students. The other students can clearly see her struggling but the school staff refuses to see it?
