We had to wait for a specialist from Brisbane to come up. He did a few hours of testing on him. Things like competing backgrounds etc..
D's was sent for a iq and hearing tests and they thought that this might play a part of his learning disabilities.

Your childs teacher should pick up on any issues and express her concerns to you when your child starts pre primary. That's my experience with ds' s school anyway.

I did. It was obvious he had a learning disabilities. So I asked for a pead referral from the gp. The gp sent us for the iq test. As part of that he had to wear head phones. The assessor noticed when we spoke he couldn't quite understand what was being said on the headphones. So she recommended to the pead for him to be tested. He also had visual processing problems.

He was in grade 2 too. It's not something easy to pick up on. If you have a hunch get him on the wait list to be tested. 8 years ago there was only one person qualified to do the tests.

He doesn't understand differences in non-verbal communication (eg tone of voice) that can change the meaning of the words said.
