I had a parent come in for a meeting because her child has been doing poorly in school and has other issues. The mom acted like all of the issues I brought up were new to her. I spoke to this mother in October and again at the beginning of December because this child has been having difficulties all year. Mom didn't follow through on my recommendations. I told her that I thought that her daughter needed to be tested because I suspect she has language processing issues. Mom yessed me to death and promised to arrange it through her home district (I teach at a private school). I just feel that this was just a waste of time like the two previous meetings. I don't think she is going to follow through on the testing and sometimes when I speak to parents I think I am talking to a brick wall.
