A preschool teacher can recommend to the parent that testing should be obtained through SELF, but it can only be initiated when the parent contacts SELF.

Signs to watch for Special Ed needs
Preschool Checklist
The Crucial Cs
To connect with others is to feel that you belong.
Children strive to connect because they are dependent on others for survival.
This continues as a child grows as they are constantly searching for their place in relationships and society.
To be capable is to feel that you will grow and develop.
Children strive to feel capable, have a sense of competence, self-control, and self-discipline.
They BELIEVE in themselves.
To count is to feel significant.
Children want to know they matter in a unique way and to know that their existence makes a difference.

The level of courage an individual achieves depends on the manner in which the first 3 Cs are attained.
Children who connect to others, feel capable, and feel like they count have the courage to be imperfect.
Children without courage frequently AVOID challenges.
Feel Inferior
Give up without trying
Refuse to take risks
Feel Inadequate
Children who feel like they don't count feel INSIGNIFICANT.
React to hurt feelings by trying to hurt others.
Poor self-esteem
Try to intimidate others
Overcompensate by acting superior

Only count "if"
(sense of significance is conditional)
Children who do not feel capable feel INADEQUATE.
Try to control others
Children who don't connect feel ISOLATED and INSECURE.
Usually in negative, self destructive ways
Attention Seeking
Let others know they cannot be controlled.
Frequently become dependent on others

Seek to overpower others
WHY are they doing THAT?
