In September our little Emily is supposed to be starting a preschool program for special needs children at our local elementary school. Right now they come to our house for her occupational therapy and speech therapy, but that ends when she turns 3 in August. If we want to continue to receive those therapies……….we have no choice but to use the school system.
Our daughter can’t communicate well and is actually still very baby-like (for lack of a better word). My husband and I dread the thought of her being in a classroom feeling scared and lost. Lost because she is very anxious when taken out of her element/our home.
We understand the need for children to be around other children
it’s good for them and we know that.
So here’s a thought……
another option is for us to just get over our fears and let her start in the fall.
Why shouldn’t it be me?
So I am asking for your comments on the subject.
Leave a note letting me know what you think.
