Have You Dealt With This? Worried About When My Son Starts School..
I have a feeling that my son is going to be one of those kids who is *too smart* for special ed classes but *Not smart enough* for regular classes.
He is VERY smart right now, especially with numbers. But he is also slow to process anything that isn't number related. He was diagnosed as being on the spectrum, but just that DX does not automatically qualify a child for special ed classes here.
I just feel like I am going to be fighting the school when it comes time. Currently he's in a special ed preschool, but next year (in 2014) he will be going to Kindergarten. I don't want him to fall through the cracks and I feel like I have a big fight ahead of me.
I can't afford private school. I'm a single Mom, I work 2 jobs and take my son to countless appointments so there is no home schooling.
