Joyce: What is the appropriate level of services for poor social cognition? My son has an IEP due to ADHD, in 2nd grade. He scored very low on 5 standardized tests in social cognition, reading nonverbal cues, perspective taking, inferences. He doesn’t have any close friends but generally gets by in relating to other children (no major conflicts, just viewed as a big strange due to his off-behavior). Grades are fine. IEP team says this does not impact academics & therefore only offer minimal services. How do you determine & advocate for appropriate level of services?
