His teacher and the whole 504 plan team have all been great so far. I was just surprised when he didn't qualify for special education. The main reason I am fighting for it is because he goes to middle school next year and with an IEP, he will be put in co-taught classrooms. Here is a list of the testing and the results: ASDS- average of likely to very likely by both raters (myself and his teacher ) BASC-2- Clinically significant range on the developmental social disorders scale DAS-II and GCA- average to above average range GFTA-2 and CELF-4- average to above average range WJ-III- average to above average range In short, the first two are what went into the Aspergers diagnosis. The other tests show that his speech, intellectual abilities, etc are all average to above average. The discrepancy is his actual grades versus his intelligence.

what are you trying to accomplish - do you want to get speech and language services (pragmatics)?
