DD has Aspergers with rather severe SPD. She will be 5 in Jan, so due to start prep term 1, 2013, but can be put off till 2014 at the latest.
I'm in two minds about sending her next year. On the one hand, she is sooo bored at home and academically could deal with grade 2 right now! But emotionally and socially, she's of course way behind her kindy friends.
The school she'll be going to is a very small country school of about 40 kids. Only 3 class groups - prep & 1 together in one classroom, 2 & 3 & 4 in another, and 5 & 6 together. So the composite class system would allow her to more easily skip ahead in certain areas, but the very small class size means more focussed help with her shortcomings.
Any advice from AS parents who have already started school??
