In Which Nolan Gets to Skip All the Screening Tests


The beginning of school has brought a full load of screening tests for every child in Universal Pre-K. First came the speech screening. I noted that he was already receiving services for an articulation delay secondary to his hearing loss. They went ahead and talked to him briefly, and simply noted "we understand he is already receiving services - he is a talkative little guy!" Basically, he got to opt out of the screening process and play with toys.

Next week is the vision screening by the Lion's Club. Since we found his vision issues last year, he gets to opt out of this one, too.

I'm waiting for the hearing screening form to come home - we should really just get a big form at the beginning of the year that says, "Um, yup - Nolan has everything you are going to be screening for. Screening tests not needed, thank you!"

Nolan doesn't mind skipping these screening tests - I suppose the one upshot of having speech/hearing/vision issues is that you get a little more time to play at the Lego table while your friends are getting tested!

Yay for Nolan!!! Whereas any other kid may be "jealous" they're "missing out", our kids are just fine with going the other way! ; )
