Cait's academic achievemnt varies greatly. I know all kids have their strengths and weaknesses, but when is it a problem? For instance, there is a 3.3 year difference between Cait's overall reading scores and her overall math. Between Reading fluency and math fluency is over 5 year difference. Between her reading fluency(significantly above grade level) and writing fluency (almost grade level) is a 4 year difference. She is also noted to do ok with writing when she has a visual, but shuts down and refused to complete when the directions were all verbal.
2 of the math subsections are 1 to 1 1/2 years below grade level. I know usually they don't do RSP until they are 2 years behind, but her scores dropped from 2 years ago when she was grade appropriate.
So to me it seems like a significant problem, however, I know all kids have high and low areas so when do I address it. I am trying to decide if I fight for RSP time. THey have mentioned the possibility of assitive tech in the way of a calculator for math. I am not sure if I am ready for her to take that step yet.
