Hello, I have a 7 year old daughter with a rare chromosome disorder (6qdel23.3-24.2). This presents itself as PDD-NOS, SPD, ADHD-Combined, separation anxiety disorder, very mild CP and developmental delay. But, honestly, to look at her...she's just a typical 4 year old. So, until people know her age, they never know there's anything amiss.
But, the problem is finding play groups! I homeschool her using the virtual public school. The local school district's version of an IEP was disheartening. FAPE laws broken all over the place! But it wasn't worth it for me to fight it, since these same uncaring people would be teaching her. So, she is learning VERY well with her kindergarten curriculum. The only problem we have is keeping friends! Of course since I'm homeschooling everyone insists that she have at least 10 BFF's who she sees every day. (roll eyes) And, since she's very friendly she does make friends quickly. She just doesn't KEEP them.
Anyone else have this problem?
