My son has SPD and I'm starting to suspect high-functioning Aspergers. He's only 5 so I'm trying not to pathologize him too much, but still, I'm noticing stuff that seems to fit a certain pattern. My daughter (3) is attending a Waldorf preschool and I absolutely love it for her. I would love to send my son too, but I'm wondering whether it would be a good fit for him. He is not interested in imaginative play, never has been, except maybe when a peer leads it. He's fine-motor delayed and not super interested in art, so I wonder how he'd do long-term with the focus on art. There are so many positives for him, of course. His tendency to get overloaded by too much sensory input would be instantly addressed by the soothing calm environment, and he would flourish with so much opportunity to move. We're also working out whether we can afford it, and my husband is hesitant about the media policy.
Anyway, I'm just curious if anyone out there with a kid with similar issues has been part of a Waldorf school, and how that has worked for your family.
