Cameron starts 4K tomorrow at the same elementary school where he was in EC. He is going to be fully included in a "typical" classroom and pulled out for therapies.
I just got a message from Cameron's EC teacher who will be helping out in his classroom this year asking me if I wanted her to talk to the classroom about what makes Cameron "special". She indicated that last year they had a little girl who was visually impaired and a little boy who was significally autistic. Telling the classroom about their differences helped everyone understand and help out if necessary. However, other than being very tiny and his speech a little delayed Cameron is pretty typical.
Although I want the other students to understand I also don't want him to be thought of as different (not yet anyway). The teacher said this in her message that she didn't think it was necessary but wanted to get my opinion.
I would love to get everyone's opinions on this.
