  3. Preschool How important is the pre-school director in terms of K placement?...(more) 2-17-2017 3:53pm (46 replies)
    Family living abroad. Had to apply to NYC pre-K (private) and some private preschools for DD; moving this summer. Did not have a chance to apply to most TT schools because they don't start at pre-K. Deciding between sending DD to a 2nd-tier school for pre-K OR to a TT preschool for one year and doing the whole application circus again in the fall. WDYT?
    Will it be THAT much harder to apply out of an ongoing school?

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do/not do at the IEP eligibility meeting for a 3.8 yo if I believe the school district evaluations didn't fully and properly test child's issue described by parent, therapists and neurologist. I have a feeling they are going to try to tell me my child isn't eligible. They tried to disqualify her even before the evals. Child has diagnosis of Dyspraxia, SPD and possibly gifted and masks her needs well. Thank you!

    “Hello, my name is Jane. My 5 year old gets cold cough and fever almost every 30 days. I hate having to give her antibiotics every month! And in spite of that, her nose is always blocked at night! I feel she doesn’t sleep too well either because of this. And what’s worse is that her grades are falling because of frequent absenteeism in school. Our pediatrician says that she has enlarged adenoids and that surgical removal is the best treatment option in her case. I don’t know what to do. My husband and I don’t wish to put our little girl through the stress of having to undergo a surgery. Any thoughts or recommendations anyone?”
