I see growth in Max, but also new challenges coming his way.
Had a two hour IEP for Max and it went splendidly. The only concern is the school psychologist wants him to take the AIMS test. The fact Max has never taken the AIMS is triggering his anxiety level to increase. The past two days he’s had two melt downs in class and it’s not the norm for him.
I’m deeply concerned of how he will cope with the pressure of solving a fifth grade math problem when he functions at second grade math level. I picture him at his desk, struggling with his first grade level, while trying to comprehend a fifth grade vocabulary word. Life seems unjust and deceitful at times.
With each passing day…I see growth in Max, but also new challenges coming his way.
