Diagnostic Tests and Descriptions
Developmental Evaluation: in-depth assessment of a child's skills and is administered by a highly trained professional, such as a development psychologist, developmental pediatrician, or pediatric neurologist.
ALWAYS tell them that they can do anything they set their mind to. Don't EVER degrade any student, no matter what capabilities they have.
Make sure to rewrite instructions/worksheets they may not understand but make sure they're still doing the same concept as everyone else. They may not always understand what's on the paper. Once you build a relationship throughout the year, this will become easier because you will know what the child can and cannot read.
Allow them to participate in social activities with the class.
Don't let what other people say about you, define who you are
