i'm worried dd is not ready for school..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
School starts in September. DD will be turning 4 2 months after September. I don't think she is ready...

No one can understand what she says. I do, because I know what she means because I'm around her 24/7... but some person off the street has no clue what she's saying 90% of the time.

She has a lisp to.. so it doesn't help.

Aside from that, she is very bright and catches on quickly. She's smart and very polite to everyone. She understands right from wrong. She very much enjoys learning, sharing and helping.

Just her speech... she's been like this since 18 months.. I work with her everyday on words and how to say them. She tries so hard. Would a school still accept her with a speech delay?

Going to school will prepare her for Kindergarten and beyond. The younger the better especially when there is a speech issue. My oldest is Autistic and has been in school since he was 2 1/2 and it has done wonders for him!!!

Junior kindergarden.. and senior kindergarden.

Age is suppose to be 3 and up to start in j/k.

Everyone is telling me I have to put her in school next year... but I don't think she's ready.

You don't think she is ready for preschool? It's not like a pass or fail type of thing, that is what will prepare her for Kindergarten if you cannot do so yourself. If you can and don't want to send her then don't. My kids never went to preschool.

Um, why did you not sign her up for speech?

When my DS regressed at 15 months, I got him into speech ASAP. They wouldn't take him till he was 2, but he has come so far. Early intervention makes a huge difference.

go to the school and have her tested before she starts so maybe she can have a speech IEP and get some speech therapy - good luck!!

Yes I have.

When DD was 18 months the doctor got me an appointment with one. I went and they said DD was still too young.

When DD turned 2 the doctor said she was fine. Although she new a lot of words at that time. Again at 2.5 I went back and she said DD had a lisp and that was it. She didn't need it and she would grow out of it.

Is she in preschool?
Call your school district have her evaluated for speech, she may qualify for preschool through your district and recieve speech services.
If you aren't comfortable sending her, hold her out a year. It's called red shirting, very very common. Many people who have babies with late birthdays hold them out a year (we did with four out of our five kids).
Best choice we ever could of made! It wasn't the educational part of school that worried me, it was the social.

Sorry I just answered someone about that.

At 28 months the doctor got me an appointment with one. We went. He said she was too young. At 2 I went back to the doctor. She said DD was fine. At 2.5 I went back again and she said DD just had a lisp and she would grow out of it. She refuses to do anything to help because DD only has a lisp.

It would help her to hear other children speaking. If she is as bright as you say, send her. The school (I am assuming pre-school right) has probably had plenty of experience with children liek your daughter.

Go to the school district and have her evaluated. You need to contact  CPSE.
