You are welcome.

It may help to know that a school and/or district may be thinking in terms of being a "system" (ie: we've always done it that way), and trying to get you to think in that context.

You, as the parent and advocate, will be thinking in terms of your child's development (ie: academic/intellectual, social/emotional, physical, etc) and trying to get the school to think in that context.

Previous experiences with other families may also make a school amenable or resistant to advocacy/acceleration, with the effect of negative experiences being like smacking the oobleck with a spoon, creating an unyielding solid which is less likely to be flexible. (Less likely to provide your child with the appropriate academic placement and educational experiences which would afford opportunity to develop the 10 skills listed in the article.)
