Last year, a parent came into my office and handed me a letter requesting an evaluation. The mom was upset, yelling and telling me the school really needed to do this big evaluation on her kid. I was trying to talk to her and get her to calm down but to no avail. Finally I just stopped engaging with the mom and instead started reading the letter. Her first line, I kid you not, was "I want the school to evaluate my daughter for Attention Defecate Disorder". I had to bite my tongue not to say "You are sh*tting me!"
