This blog is a continuation of my last blog regarding proving children disabled. Over the next six blogs I will be providing some specific examples of limitations in each domain to help you better understand what must exist and be documented to prove your child disabled.
Acquiring and Using Information
- Does not demonstrate an understanding of words that describe concepts such as space, size, or time (for example, inside/outside, big/little, morning/night).
- Cannot rhyme words or the sounds in words.
- Has difficulty remembering what was learned in school the day before.
- Does not use language appropriate for age.
- Is not developing “readiness skills” the same as peers (for example, learning to count, reciting ABCs, scribbling).
- Is not reading, writing, or doing arithmetic at appropriate grade levels.
- Has difficulty comprehending written and/or oral directions.
- Struggles with following simple instructions.
- Talks only in short, simple sentences.
- Has difficulty explaining things.
Please keep in mind that these examples are not all inclusive but just a brief review of SOME of the limitations that may exist. Also, not all examples will be appropriate for children of all ages.
