A Question that Deserves an explanation ...

I found this question on

Most schools use a standard developmental chart to measure a child's cognition and physical development. What if your child cannot be measured here? Aren't they adding their own bias about child development and what is good for your child?

What if you could demonstrate that your child does not fit into their mold or idea of what is good for the child? Isn't this where your pediatrician can help or any of the experts who made the diagnosis on your child's behalf?

The entire education system is based on measuring one child's cognition to what most
kids can do at a particular age. What does this have to do with your child if they are wired differently?

The education system never made any sense to me when it comes to providing education to our children with special needs, but I am a willing student here.
