I went to a parent-teacher conference for Wes today, and his kindergarten teacher recounted this FANTASTIC story.

So, we asked, a few weeks back, that Wes be evaluated for sensory integration issues, and they pulled him out of class a while back to do the evaluation. The OT therapist has to be very neutral about the exam, so she says, "Good work," or "Good job" to each answer, not giving the kid a clue about whether it was right or wrong.

So, at some point, she's showing him flashcards and he's giving answers.

OT: Okay, Wes, and what number is this.
Wes: Seventeen.
OT: Good job. How about this one.
Wes: That last one wasn't really seventeen.
OT: It wasn't?
Wes: No. I was just seeing if you were paying attention.

Evaluating his abilities are such a headache. ;)
