I heard today that my grandson is being assessed for his next school. At the moment he attends a special pre-kindergarten for children with difficulties. He has made terrific progress in the last two years, and is a lovable, smart, funny and polite little boy.
However, he has been 'red flagged' to see a neurologist and educational psychologist, to determine his level of learning disability, and it is thought that he should continue in special education for the next stage. He needs considerable speech therapy and socialization skills.
Yet this has to be a good thing, because he will then receive on-going individual one-on-one assisted teaching support........but I really wish he didn't need it.
I'm feeling pretty helpless, as they live in the States, and I just wish I was closer to be able to lend a hand, but they are a strongly bonded family and I know they will deal with this well.
