My son is currently in prek at the school he is supposed to be going to for kindergarten next year. This week my husband met with the kindergarten parent educator and his current prek teacher. They basically said that traditional school may not be the best option for our son. They suggested maybe skipping a grade or looking into private schools. He has not has a formal assessment yet or taken an IQ test. My son is also very big for his age. He is 4 1/2 but is always assumed to be 6. He is also very verbal for his age. So this combination makes people misjudge his age all the time. I don't think skipping kindergarten makes sense. Any suggestions for how to advocate my my child?
