5 yr old with SPD should I delay kindergarten?
I have a 5 yr old with SPD in a pre K program at the local public school. He has an IEP, support and has been relatively successful in the program. Still his teacher recommend that he stay in the pre k classes and delay Kindergarten for another year. They think he is socially immature and lacks some independent skills, such as using the public bathrooms on his own.
I want to do what is best for him but I am just not sure what that is. Will holding him in pre K give him what he needs to mature with his peer group, make friends...I am not sure being with younger kids will help him. I am a bit sad that he won't be moving forward with friends and cousins:( do you have any experience with this to share? Thank you!!!
