As you know today was the day I was finally getting Violet's Psych Report in my hand and also having it all explained to me by Violet's Psychologist.
This would be an indication of what funding Violet would be eligible for, for school next year.
These are her results:
Verbal IQ scored 7th percentile
Performance IQ scored 6th percentile
Processing Speed Quotient scored 2nd percentile
This made Violet's overall IQ 3rd percentile
At the end of Violet's report it says "The combined results of the assessment are consistent with and suggestive of a mild intellectual disability."
Don't get me wrong I am ever so thankful she is on the mild end of the scale, but how does someone who scores so lowly with IQ percentiles still only be mild?
You may be wondering why I am ranting away, but based on this mild result, Violet will not be eligible for ANY funding! My heart sank and I started to cry when the Psych told me this, I am devastated and have spent most the morning in tears.
This isn't even mentioning her physical issues she has and the help she will not be receiving for that next year either!
Why if my child has a mild intellectual disability can she not have access to funding that she needs and deserves, whether on the scale from mild to severe all kids with disabilities need funding!
Every step of the way in Violet's short life has been a fight! I am so very over it!
Just how does a child that scores significanty below average in IQ not get ANY funding for school! I am over this Country and it's crap lack of support for kids with disabilities! Home schooling it is then!
