I agree with the statement below with three exceptions:  1) if you are  
having overt neurological symptoms; 2) if you are planning to take  
some sort of legal action against your employer--which under the  
restrictions imposed by the Workers' Compensation system--is almost  
impossible to do; or 3) you have good reason to believe that the  
school is hiring people to test who are either incompetent or  

There is nothing urgent about testing you or your children as long as  
we are talking about a few weeks until results of the tests are  
available.  Then those tests can guide the toxicologist.
