My dd will be 5 in June and is technically old enough to attend kindergarten in the fall but she is small for her age, verbally behind (due to enlarged tonsils which have been removed) but is super good at math and science. Indiana allows me to keep her out another year.Answer Question

There really is no such thing as "ready for kindergarten". Kindergarten is where kids will learn numbers, letters, sounds, shapes, social skills and many other things.

well, what i did was i contacted the board of education in my school district and they sent me a package of materials that the kids were expected to know when they were entering kindergarten. it was basic shapes, colors, writing their name, identifying the letters of the alphabet and a couple of sight words. we also went for a tour of the school and met with the principal, guidance counselor and some of the teachers. i'm sure they would be more than happy to ease your mind and let you know if they think she is ready or not. as pp said they have programs especially for speech (i went to one when i was in elementary school....still have trouble with the 's' sound, but i'm much better than i was lol). gl and you have plenty of time to make a decision.
