My daughter was a 28 weeker with IUGR, born in November 2007 and due in February 2008. At the moment, we are trying to determine what to do about school: yes it is still a while away but if we were to send her to junior kindergarten at the right time, we would be signing her up next year at this time. She is still VERY small for her age (under 20 lbs at 27 months) and is also lagging a bit in a few areas (speech, possibly some fine motor) although she is starting to progress quickly.
I remember someone mentioning to me shortly after she was born that they thought we could send her later, not just joining grade one with the 2007 class (which is an option for any child, preemie or otherwise), but actually a year later so that she would be with her 2008 peers instead of her 2007 peers. Of course, I can’t remember anything about it now, and maybe that person didn’t actually know.
So, what is the deal, anyone know?
