Our twice-exceptional child has been in a G&T program at a mainstream public school for a couple of years. Although he still rocks the academics, he is struggling significantly more with delayed social skills, poor fine motor (writing is hell), and anxiety this school year. A 30-kid class is becoming overwhelming for him. Homeschooling is not possible for us (all adults F/T WOH and need to for us to stay afloat). We're researching our options, but it seems like the only programs or schools that would address dc's issues would not come close to being academically appropriate for him. He's in 2nd grade. Would you switch out of gifted to a class that is at least a year behind his current level in every subject in order to get a better class size and support services? In some subject, as much as 2-3 years behind his current level. Note that if we do that, he is unlikely to have a chance to return to gifted track until secondary school.
