Feeling Proud

Just wanted to post a comment about my DD (5) and how proud I am of her.

She has just turned 5 and started mainstream reception class in September. Has settled in really well, made friends, is sociable, outgoing, etc. Is started to learn to read and write - can trace her name but can't form it without help - and can read the words "mum", "dad", "the" and "I".

The teacher said that Sasha is like a little ray of sunshine when she comes into the classroom in the morning and when she leaves at the end of the day. She has learnt to take turns and place nicely alongside other children. The teacher said there is one child in the class (who has no problems at all) but is not at all confident or outgoing. Sasha will now seek out this little boy and integrate his play into the other children's. She said that Sasha is the one that has helped this little boy so much.

How proud do I feel?

My DD has a condition called Sotos Syndrome which basically causes overgrowth and global developmental delay.

Well bumble, my Ds has no developmental delay but your dd is way ahead of him in the writing and reading stakes! He has just had his first little 'homework' through which is to recognise the words "the" and "and" reliably over three consecutive days and we are not there yet

Your dd sounds bright and obviously has social skills and a thoughtful personality that will take her a long way in should be really proud x
