My son 5 is in a pre-k program. He has always been more high energy and equisitive but sensitive to stimuli especially noise. The program is owned and ran by gymnastics company so they do a lot of physical activity along with all the preschool education. It is a great fit for him and he is doing great.
The issue is that his teacher has brought to my attention that he has trouble sitting still and keeping eye contact. He will hear and absorb everything she says but doesn't appear to. She is worried that when he moves into kindergarden the teacher may not "get" this about him. If he sees a toy or item out of place in class during a lead activity(such as circle time) he HAS to get up to put it away(he really has to), and he has had some problems with other kids because he thinks things should be done a certain way etc, but nothing to bad.
She thinks he seems to get overwhelmed with all the stuff happening in class and just over stimulated. He has always had issues with Sounds and Sensory and touch but nothing to disruptive.
My question, How can I prepare him for kindergarden and help him come up with coping skills he can use in class without disrupting the rest of the class?? Anyone deal with something similar.
