Well, I haven't talked to them yet. I'm first trying to see what they have to offer, then I'll decide if I think it's a good idea or not. I guess I'm not worried about it right now because they told ne that they wouldn't separate them. Emmet will go to the preschool (as a student who needs service) and Gus will go as a role-model. We are just calling it school (not making Emmet aware of the fact that it's a special program.)
Hopefully he won't be there very long. I have a brother who has been in Special Ed since age 3, and even went to a school esp designed for LD students and his self esteem is pretty close to zero. I guess that's one of the reasons that I'm so concerned. Emmet recognizes when he can't do something and becomes very upset very quickly. I think he might feel like a failure?
For example, during the testing the teacher asked him to walk w/ one foot in front of the other. He took one step, and thru himself down saying "I CAN'T DO IT!!!!". That kind of behavior has me really concerned. I've tried to get them to talk to me, but they said they'll fill me in on a need to know basis :mad:
