Coping with more mainstream

Spoke to the unit and dd is now fully mainstream for literacy and only does 2 sessions of numeracy in the unit and 3 in ms.

Teacher said she is coping really well and only has 1 large session of social skills and that's about it!

It is a bit scary but it's also a positive in that when dd started 2 years ago she was in the unit everyday. I am really pleased but anxious at the same time.

Obv. when she is in the ms she has a support assistant there if needed so they haven't just thrown her into the deep end so to speak!

This is so wonderful she has progessed so much, it's so good you can look back and reflect too, not always easy to do! xx

Thanks everyone. I am really proud of dd as she is the only child in that year group that is able to go almost fully into mainstream so it really is a huge step.
I have to say as well that since starting cranial I have seen huge improvements in her chatting and concentration too.
