Parents with children who have HFA . . . advice please?
I was allowed to review the test once he had taken it . . . and the questions that were marked wrong all had a similar theme . . . and bare with me because this can only be described by example . . .
One of the questions was does afternoon come before morning or night . . . my son answered "both" which is technically correct but obviously not the answer they were looking for . . .
Another question asked my son to put four pictures in sequential order. The correct sequence was first the dog got dirty, second the boy prepares a bath, third the boy gives dog a bath, fourth the boy hugs the clean dog . . . my son could not complete this because the boy technically could have hugged the dog before or after the bath
So, even though my son is technically correct, how do I encourage him to just give the obvious answer . . . how do you explain to a child that sometimes the dumbest answer is best. . .?
And what type of thought is this . . .?
