I'm just wondering if anyone here has kids on the spectrum who attend a Reggio Emilia or inquiry based school? Our 4.5yo begins school in January 2014 (we're in the southern hemisphere) and until diagnosis, we had always intended to send him to a Reggio school. We have done Reggio playgroup for years and his kindergarten is play based and loosely Reggio inspired. When we received his diagnosis one of our biggest points of grief was that Reggio wouldn't be a good educational fit for him - busy, loud multi-age classrooms etc etc.
But now, his psych has said that if we can work hard on his sensory stuff in the next 6 months, and ensure that the school is on side with working out the right structure/flexibility balance, then she wouldn't be too concerned about Reggio. I still have concerns, but so want this that I'm having trouble not making an emotional decision.
Anyone have any insight?
