Module 2 Discussion

The parents agree to the free, in-school speech and occupational therapies but later refuse services when they discover that their daughter was tested by a black diagnostician. Even though the teacher knows that the first tests are valid and the black diagnostician is competent, the teacher asks that the child be retested by a white diagnostician.
