As a parent you have the ability to arm yourself with knowledge. You can print out the below materials and submit them to your child’s school asking that they be included in your child’s file. This information lets the school understand some basic facts. First, that psychological testing on your child is not a mandated process and that you as a caregiver can and do “opt out” of it. Secondly, it will provide the school with the Federal Law. Lastly, it will provide some important information on ADHD and stimulant drugs to the school that they might not have already known.
