ds1 had the test couple of weeks ago so i thought theyd confused them until turned sheet over and its report on her-including background etc.shouldnt i have known they were doing it or even that they had concerns????shes not by the way it says 'little evidence of dyslexia' but i knew she was behind on her reading and bit behind on her writting but her readings really catching up.im not mad that they tested her or that they had concerns just that i wasnt told!!!maybe this should be in am i being unreasonable!
Whilst I'd want to know why I wasn't told, I'd rather they were looking than not. I couldn't imagine having a child go through all of primary and secondary and then find out they were dyslexic rather than thick as my (actually second) cousin was labelled.
Perhaps they tested her because of your DS's diagnosis as a matter of policy (given there's a strong genetic link) and thought that that would have been mentioned to you when discussing your DS? Or, as Rusty says, it may be completely routine.
RustyBear- that would make sense as she has just gone in year 3(it said it had been done last term,they didnt know about ds then). am more chilled today. i was only 'offended' as ds had not been picked up-they had labelled him as naughty with no concentration and distruptive.we got him tested.so found it odd that theyd tested the one who although a little bit behind was no where near having as much trouble as ds.if that makes sense.i am glad they tested and obviously glad that shes not dyslexic.
