Bronze Medal Winner
It doesn't matter that you have a disability, can't always hear everything, or if you are noted as a deaf child in a hearing world...
It doesn't matter that there are no "special schools" nearby to send my special children to which leads us into the public school system...
It doesn't matter. Gman earned himself a Bronze medal Friday for his outstanding SAT scores last year. This means he has learned enough in his regular classroom, with his regular teacher, without any pull-out time...to do very well, so well that earned a medal. This time, he's shooting for the silver or gold!
Some of you will ask about his SAT accommodations. He does take the tests in a smaller room, will fewer kids as opposed to the larger classroom full of his peers. This is because his ADHD is so severe and because they need to be certain he heard all the instructions but other than a change of rooms, he doesn't get any special treatment or anything. (Also, if he were to start having processor problems, he wouldn't hold up the entire grade while he troubleshooted-or is it troubleshot, lol)
Very proud of our Gman!
