My daughter is well on her way to failing 1st grade again (she is still struggling with preschool concepts). We'll they cant actually do that, because then she would graduate high school at 20! So there is a huge meeting taking place on the 30th to decide what to do with her. I have been given the impression that she will be moved into the special needs class. I don't know what to think. Her whole life I have known that she has issues and that things would be harder for her. But I never anticipated just how bad it would be. I don't know what to expect. If this will be a good thing for her or bad? If I should just go back to homeschooling...or leave her in school with all of the professionals?
School was super easy for me as a child. So I have a hard time "getting it". I just feel terrible and helpless here. Like I have failed her somehow (even though I know that's silly). I have thrown so much money at tutors, classes, occupational therapists, etc. I even majored in child development because I thought I would learn things that could help me teach her. I really thought I could help her get better somehow, and now I need to realize that I can't. This isn't just going to go away someday. She isn't going to just grow out of this.
I thought I had done this already, but I guess I am now at the "acceptance" stage of this. Her quirkiness used to just be cute. And now it is causing huge problems in her life. Anyone btdt? Any words of wisdom for someone going through this?
