Our son goes to a regular public school. He does have special classes but is also mainstreamed into the main classroom throughout the day.

in my sons case he goes to a regular school, where he is one of 20 students. The only way that he could cope in a classroom with so many students is with a shadow teacher. He had one in kindergarten and he has one now in 1st grade.

My SD is 7 and in regular public school. She's in first grade. Half of her time is in a "special needs" classroom where they get one on one attention and the other half of the day is with their classmates in regular classes. We live in ohio.

I live in New Hampshire.

It's not necessarily the state, but the district, and sometimes the individual school and it's personnel, that make the difference....we are fortunate to be in one of those schools and in one of those districts. BUT, it has also taken a lot of work, education, and research on my part, as well. Things don't happen without work on our part, as parents and advocates for our kids.

This has just been our experience, it has worked for her. It's certainly not a route for all, but is an option. I would hate to see someone not think this is possible for their child when it could be.

What state do you live in, Laura? I have found that 1) depends on the State in which you live and 2) the severity of disabilities the WS has.

Hi,

My daughter, who just turned 10 yesterday, has always been in a regular classroom since she started school at age 3, she's in 4th grade now. She has amazing supports and modifications when and where she needs them.

You may want to email them or call them and get a suggestion. They may be able to send information to you or to your pediatrician, for example the medical list for WS kids and the time spand they should have such tests (i.e...kidneys, blood, urine, heart..etc...)

Awww, girl...you got plenty of time to explore, however, finding your child's delays the extent of the delays and start working on them now will allow for your child's success. There will be challenges, yes...but WS kid's can teach you alot along the way too!

I am not sure what state is QLD, but regardless...find a WS clinic close to you!

There are special needs schools....however, there is someone else in the town in which I live whose daughter is in a regular ed classroom in the Public School System. How old is your WS child and which State do you live in?
