starting main stream kindergarten with IEP
A short background, dd has been in speech therapy since she was 2, finally began talking a little over a year ago. She of course still has a lot of problems, but her improvements are awesome to the point that most adults can understand her if they take their time to listen. There are so many things that she can't communicate still and uses very general phrases for, but I know she still has awhile before the new school year. Also she has some social and emotional issues. But nothing serious, but I do worry about her interactions with her classmates . I worry about her ability to make friends and express herself with the other kids. I worry about the teachers patience with her... Sigh.. I worry about her getting overwhelmed by the larger class sizes and the full day of school vs her 6 class mates now and only half day classes :/
Oh and when she was tested for preschool, she was severely delayed across the board, cognitive, emotionally, socially, and of course speech n language
Any words of advice or assurance would be awesome, please.. oh dd is actually on track for her age academically now, Woohoo!!
