January has just come to a close, and the new year has brought new avenues already!
Never would I have imagined I would be sending by little boy off to school soon. When they say time flies, they sure mean it...
When he was younger, we attended therapy through ECI (early childhood intervention). At three years of age, they assist and help you over to public schooling, if you choose to go that route.
I wanted to home school Oliver the first year after leaving ECI until he was four and now here we are.
So we have scheduled ourselves an appointment for the beginning of this month, in which they will evaluate Oliver to see what programs we can qualify for, through the school district.
These could be programs which allow Oliver to go to school for a couple hours a day, get a head start on a few things or even be placed in a certain classroom with other children whom may have delays in any area.
We do not know entirely all that is offered, but that is what we are setting out to see. With public schooling, my fear was just throwing Oliver into school and being away from home.
This unfortunately left us with little socialization with other children his age.
It was tough already when we would go on mommy play dates, because after so long, the children who crawled with Oliver went on to walking and he could not keep up.
Now when his older brother’s friends come over, I see the desperation and need to want to go and play with them.
We have been blessed in many ways, siblings included, and want the best experience for Oliver with schooling and meeting new friends of all abilities.
We just hope it can be provided through the school district for us and ultimately, for Oliver.
