I was advised yesterday to think hard abt. sending difficult child to kindergarten this year or next. I wanted to find out from all of you with older children if you delayed starting school with your difficult child and how it affected them. I definitly have to have an evaluation through the school first so he can get an IEP and (ed) label for services. This was recommended by his psychologist. She said he was definitly ready intellectually but did not believe he was socially or emotionally ready. My fear is that I will get him in school and he will get kicked out immeadiatly due to his agressive & ODD behavior. He had been kicked out of 3-4 daycares from the ages of 2-3 1/2. My fear in the other direction is that he will get bored if I delay and due to his size (97% for height, 91% for weight) that he will be a good canidate for trying to bully and dominate the other children when he goes. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated!!
