Naomi was to register for classes this morning on-line. Immediately she received an error message stating that she didn't have the requisite skill level to enroll in any classes. Arghhhh! We went in person to investigate. After waiting an hour, we spoke to a counsellor that said she couldn't take any class until she took some basic skills class. Her deficiency was in writing NOT reading as she was told. No waiver would be accepted for these classes (not true, I applied for a waiver for every class and it turns out they were accepted but I didn't find that out until much later). She was told she needed to write a paper of their choosing today and have it graded. This took another hour but fortunately, she was deemed 'college material' so she was allowed to register in whatever class that had space. For a while, I was feeling sorry for both of us because it seemed that unless she passed that writing test, college was not going to be an option for her. Also she needs to be a full time student to receive health insurance. But the worst is over, just fine tuning her schedule is needed and we also have to speak to another counsellor about accommodations for her reading disability.

Our guests left this morning. It was fun having them. Shanna and her family should be here in 10 days. I can't wait.

How frustrating! You are such a good mum being there for Naomi. What reading disability does she have. My youngest has reading and learning disabilities, so frustrating because he is an incredibly intelligent little boy x

So glad to hear that she had passed the first test. Trust the Lord that she will do the same for the writing test.
