My son is 4 years old and just got kicked out of catholic preschool. He did not pass the screening test. My son can climb a tree, ride a bike, write his letters correctly and cut in a straight line. However the school kept insisting he needed occupational therapy. I refused. Now they are saying if he had done occupational therapy he would have passed the screening test. Now I am scabbling around looking for another preschool and having to sheepishly explain why my son got kicked out of Catholic school.

What does SN mean?

Secondly my son is not disruptive and is quite bright. I believe it is a money making scheme and I did not go along with it. Yes this is a Catholic School. Whartever happened to "love thy neighbor. "

I did get a second opinion and they said he did not need occupational therapy. The head of the preschool stated that her occupational therapist was really well known, and i needed to take her friends word over anyone elses. In answer to your suggestion I am applying to other schools at the present time.

Again, what was the reason they gave to you? They should have said his fine motor skills needs work or something. You have a right to know if they haven't told you and like Sarah said, you can get a 2nd opinion and they have to accept the results.
I would also want to move schools if they are like this with little ones, what are they like as the kids get older?

A friend of the director of the preschool was an occupational therapist. She tested him and said he needed it. However the test was not appropriate for his age. In addition she was charging $50.00 an hour. So I said no.

Why were they saying he needed occupational therapy? What skills did he need to improve on?
