Has anyone had one of their kids repeat kindergarten? My son is a January baby, so he is one of the oldest in his class. He has severe motor and speech apraxia. His receptive language is off the charts and he master most of the kindergarten academics a couple of years ago. His difficulties lie with his motor and social skills. He needs help with dressing, etc and has a full-time education assistant at school. He was a very social baby and toddler until speech became an issue. Now, he is social with adults, but not so much with his peers. I wonder if that reason alone might be good enough to keep him behind. I am curious to read other's experiences. ETA - I have a meeting on Friday with his classroom teacher and the resource teacher about grade one transition. I want to get my head around all options before going.
