Adam and Adrian (5.4) are in the same class in Head Start (preschool). They didn't have a slot open to separate them and I'm not sure I would have done that anyway. I can remember how terrified I was starting a new school and not knowing anyone and having a disability was scary enough. Adrian has a disability and I'm glad his twin brother is in the same class, though now they are exploring a slight distance by making other friends, and doing activities with other groups. YAY! They are not clinging to each other so much anymore! I'm so proud of them. I do feel that when they hit the first grade, I will seriously consider getting them into separate classes, I just think this preschool and kindergarden is the "weening" period rather than going "full speed ahead" in their separation. Adrian is trying some new adaptive equipment in the classroom and doing very well. I get email from the OT on a regular basis telling me how he does. Adam is learning to express his angry in different ways rather than throwing toys, and kicking and screaming, like he used to. Their teacher is a wonderful lady and she even came to "visit" to get to know me and the boys before they started preschool. Now how many teachers actually do that? She stayed for 2 hours! It was wonderful! Anyway, I'm babbling. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
