My son is 7yrs. old his in 3rd grade. His teacher n

Had mention about his speech. I'm a single mom who is very concern with my child. A few days later a friend of mine told me to check if his school do screening test. So I call and they are now doing tests. My concern is why it took so long for any one to notices and he did not pass the first screening. I'm so upset and still trying to understand how did my son pass 2nd grade. I feel so bad that my son suffered all grades and no one at school even notices he had a problem. Please help and make me understand the school role when it comes to kids with disabilities problem? Thank you!

I hate to say this but it is more common than you would think. There are a lot of children who get passed along to the next grade even if they are not ready.



My niece was 16 years old before they discovered she had a hearing problem and by then she had already dropped out of school because she was so behind in everything. It's very unfortunate.

Oh she is fine. She was able to get hearing aids and she eventually got her GED. Glad I could help.
