Kindergarten

Yesterday I registered Payton for kindergarten. She hasn't had her screening yet, but we meet with her pre-k teachers on the 25th for an exit conference. When I went to the office, I wasn't sure who I needed to talk to about the possibility of Payton having a para. I feel like she needs one, but wasn't sure what the school's response or thinking would be. They told me I would need to meet with the principal and discuss it with him, but come to find out after speaking with her preschool teacher, she has already recommended Payton have an aide. Can I tell you what a relief this is for me? Because we're just entering the school system, I wasn't sure if this was something I would have to fight for. Payton's preschool teacher had already met with the special ed dept in the elementary school and recommended Payton have an aide to help her stay on task (for instance, when it's story time or time to work on something, Payton just gets up and walks off....she just doesn't focus well or sit still well). Focusing is Payton's biggest problem and I firmly believe an aide will help her keep on track and can even explain things to her that the teacher says (directions, for instance) but Payton may not understand. Ofcourse I also think of the little things, such as using the restroom, carrying her tray in the lunchroom, etc. Whew - definitely an answer to prayer!

Good for you!

That is wonderful. I can only hope we are that lucky when the time comes. Focus is also his biggest issue.

That is great news. Ari has an aide and does fantastic with it. She is actually able to go to specials (music,art, gym ) independently. The whole lunch tray thing freaked me out totally but she did it just fine and so will Payton...I'm here if you need Kindergarten advice...good to ask now while I'm still in the midsts of it.

I am thrilled!!! This is something we've talked about several times and I know this has to put your mind at ease. Her aide will be one lucky person . . .she'll get to see Payton's adorable, sweet smile every day!! (Laney will be jealous!)
