Does Gavin have a disability? That is the only way he will get his own learning aid.



Other than that, has the teacher indicated WHY she thinks Gavin should only do half a day? I really think you should listen to her reasoning. After all, she may have her reasons. I am not sure what she has done to you that you don't trust her, but really, I couldn't give any advice unless I knew her reasons for suggesting half days were better. Quite honestly, if he is requiring his own aid in your opinion, then she may have a point.



Just remember, too, that all day is a long time for a 4 year old. Some 4 year olds don't cope with that. Most children here in Australia are 5 before they have to go to school all day every day, and for very good reason.
