Hi, my little girl was suppose to start full time mainstream nursery just after her third birthday, she also had a full time LSA. We spoke to the headmaster before she started and said that she would be unable to cope with full time education due to her age and needs, he was very understanding and she was able to do just mornings for the first two terms.

I hope all goes well with you and your able to get this sorted ASAP, Good luck and keep us updated. X

Hiya,
I have been told by both Ed Psych & OT that if a child has very severe needs then they need more input, so if the child is in full time then he gets more stimulation & makes more progress than they would at home.
My youngest has GDD and as part of that his speech is very unclear. He hardly had any speech at 2½ when I met his dad and we were advised to get him in full time nursery asap so he was in a 'language rich' environment and would get the support he needed.
While I could see what they meant, this took no account of his other needs - he wasn't ready socially or emotionally, it also seemed to be based on the assumption that I didn't do anything with him at home when actually I did a lot of activities with him and did Makaton training so I could teach him some to help him communicate.
We definitely do know our children better than a lot of the 'professionals' but they often seem to forget that!!

Nice to hear that some professionals have some common sense and do what's best for the children, we need more people like that working with us and our children!
