To Test or Not To Test--that is the question.

Parents often ask me, "Should I have my child tested?" The truth is, when they've gotten to the point of asking that question, there is usually a reason to do so. There have been incidences of not reading as well as expected, their spelling is below where it should be, or their child is frustrated but obviously bright. It's a big investment financially, so families struggle with the decision. I know I did, but it was the best thing I ever did for my son. It was like having a handbook on how to help him. I followed my "handbook" to the letter, and my son thrived. That never would have happened without testing. And thank goodness for Dr. Beljan. He was the only one who pinpointed what my son was struggling with and what to do to help him. Where is he now? He just graduated from college with a degree in Architecture and is an Architectural Designer with a firm specializing in high-end residential. He is in his dream job, and it wouldn't have happened without testing. Take a listen to this chat with Dr. Beljan. I hope it helps answer that question about testing. (Please excuse my awful resolution. It was my first attempt.)
