Spoke to dd's teacher and she is so pleased with how dd is getting on. They assessed her reading, spelling and comprehension in literacy and she came out so high that dd and 1 other boy in the class are taken out and taught in a group of 10 the other 8 are year 2 students. Dd being nearly 5 and half and an August baby is the youngest in yr1. So will be with children more like ds's age who is 7!
They also said that lately her behaviour has really calmed down and she is so much more receptive. Always gets her work done and is actually taking pride in her work as she used to rush it before.
They are just so pleased with her and I am so proud. It just amazes me that she excells at literacy yet has a language disorder. So has mastered, reading, spelling etc. but still struggles to have a 2 way conversation for too long. Bizarre isn't it?
That's fantastic news Blossomhill - how encouraging!
I find the whole thing intellectually stimulating. DS1 has very very strong literacy skills, and again he is a summer baby (July - so not quite as young as yours). Yet he just doesn't understand the basic skills of conversation.
Fab, Fab, Fab, Blossomhill. I'm so pleased for you and dd. You must feel sooooo proud. It's lovely when things happen like that, isn't it? And IMHO now she's at school the 2 way conversation thing will slowly start to diminish too. Fantastic! XXXX
