My son is 5 and starting kindergarten in the fall. He isn't classified as special needs but we realized(Us as parents and his preschool teacher) that he gets over stimulated at class. She said that she was more worried that he may have trouble more because the teacher does not know him and cannot see that even though he may not look as if he is paying attention(looking around the room, fidgeting a bit) he really is.
She says that he can be doing that and then she will stop him and ask him what she was saying/discussing, and he can repeat it back, nearly word for word. He is also obsessed with order and if he sees something out of order(a toy on the floor etc) he HAS to get up from circle etc. and go and fix it. She allowed it as it she stated "he has to do it"(not so sure this was the best approach).
But he will also get over stimulated and need a quite time to calm down.
I'm worried about how to handle this when he goes into kindergarten, so any tips or "tricks" that you can offer me, perhaps some to work on with him this summer to prepare him?
