Wish us luck! (He just wants to play on the playground that is about 10 feet from the door! I hope they can get him in the room with a MAJOR distractor like that! LOL!)<br><br>
He attends from 8:35-11:45am twice a week. (I'd pick him up an hour earlier but playground time isn't until later in the morning and I know he'd meltdown if he doesn't get to play on the playground.)<br><br>
I hope he gets along with the 5 other boys there. I am bringing organic apple juice pouches and individually packaged GFCF cookies for snack even though he leaves before snack to get on everyone's good side! LOL!<br><br>
I hope he participates in group speech therapy. I wonder if this class will be beneficial to him at all. I have anxiety and doubt so I am giving it a trial run. If I didn't try it I'd always wonder and if I do then I'll know! I've been thinking about this decision for 5 days now.<br><br>
Sincerely,<br>
Debra, homeschooling mom of 4 ages 11(AS), 10, 8, and 4 1/2 (Apraxia, DYsarthria, PDD, OCD)

For me, one of the hardest parts of being a SN mom, maybe THE hardest part, has been trying to find the right place for Ezra, where he'll be celebrated, seen, cared for, encouraged, and also given loving help for his challenges. I feel like we finally found such a place... for now anyway. But the road there was a painful one for me. I hope you've found that place for your DS!

I just had to say that you succinctly put into words my feelings on finding the right school for my DS.<br><br>
Good luck to your DS and to you, Debra. I hope this is a wonderful match for him.

We found that is a SN pre-K class through the public schools. I am very happy with it except I wish he could stay til 2 pm instead of 12 pm. He likes it so much that he won't leave and getting him off the bus is HELL for me. We have been working with DS on transitions and trying to help him leave without a fuss. Somedays are good, and some just stink.

Good luck to the both of you tomorrow. I hope it is a fun and smooth day for him. Please post back after he gets home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Everyone in the immediate family came today and dropped off my 4 1/2yo.<br><br>
His aide came out to meet us and showed us where to park when we pick him up at 11:30am. I don't know about the teacher (only met her once) but I LOVE this woman! She is full of useful information she volunteers and she seems confident and experienced.<br><br>
God bless the little boy Jacob who took my son's outstretched hand when his aide suggested the boys hold hands on the way back to class. (My son only has one small thumb and one small pinky finger on the hand he outstretched.) (I took a photo.)<br><br>
I made biscotti was was too chicken to give it to the teacher or the secretary. What if they don't like it? LOL!<br><br>
That being said my other children got their homeschooling done fast with my undivided attention. It feels weird not to have my youngest here. He didn't eat breakfast but he went willingly.<br><br>
Sincerely,<br>
Debra, homeschooling mom of 4

That's so sweet! It sounds like a very positive first day. Good news!<br><br>
p.s. Everyone loves biscotti, and it was a lovely gesture -- don't be shy!
