  2. Preschool Could someone recommend a place for eye-exam for 5-year old?...(more) 8-1-2016 12:00pm (6 replies)
    Could someone recommend a place for eye-exam for 5-year old (for school health form), preferably UWS? It seems regular optometrist don't take 5-year-old's, and pediatric Ophthalmologist will only do 2-hour procedure with pupil-dilation and stuff that scares the hell out of me. Thanks!

Third, as a professional supplier, Ezpopsy offers various styles of brand clothing, including girl dresses. Different materials and different designs will give you different temperaments. A Week Before Wearing Your Bodycon Since putting on a pair of Spanx is the greatest form of self-cockblocking known to womankind, it is imperative that you attend to a strict fitness regimen starting about a week before you plan to wear your bodycon. Workout wise, you must spend at least three hours on the elliptical and two hours on the treadmill everyday¨Cthe goal here is to sweat out enough water to supply an African village for a month. Directly after the cardio sesh, rotate between doing squats, bridge poses, and the Nike 8-minute ab exercises until you feel that the only cure for the pain

    • First, it's preschool, not a grad degree, but if your child needs services, why wouldn't you have it integrated into her school day? 5-5-2016 10:20pm

    • What type of UPK classroom is it? If it's at one of the public schools, you need to find out if it's an ICT class (where there are kids with IEPs and typical kids together, with...(more) 5-6-2016 7:45am
      Both a special Ed and a regular Ed teacher, and if they have OTs, speech therapists, or anyone else your DC might need at the school. If this is the case, it MIGHT be worth considering if you need to worry about having priority at the school for K. If it's a UPK class at a prek center or within a private daycare, they won't have any of those services and you'll have to get them elsewhere, it can be logistically difficult, plus your DC won't have the advantage of a special Ed teacher in the room (unless you qualified for a SEIT in your IEP?). Don't worry about curriculum at this age, it's gonna be the same basics anywhere (shapes, letters, etc.), the focus should really be more on social & self-regulatory for all kids at this age, anyway, and a CPSE will give you more of that.

      Is it possible to find out where your child is on the waiting list? Impossible to get hold of the school parent coordinator. Never picks up the phone, and doesn't answer emails.

    Picked up rock on carpet. Turned out to be dog poop. Old lady dog just came in from outside and must've though, 'Oh, not quite done.' OCD washed my hands and still don't feel clean.
