Today I spoke with the neuropsychologist who wrote the report saying GB was autistic. My question was really simple. After having her (state) agency write a report that another person, from a different part of her agency (read here) read and said the report was not enough to get GB services, was there any point of taking on THIS particular dragon. Her response was mind numbing. She said if we repeat the exact same testing on GB’s 8th birthday, she would qualify for all available services. Not because GB would be any different in two months (she won’t be), but because the norms they use to score the testing instruments change the day she turns eight. I guess some days the dragon does win.
