    Thanks that is really useful. I will speak to a gp first to find out how to set it in motion and how to discuss it with dd.

    With strangers at cafes etc she is a real chatterbox! She will talk to anyone and everyone and will initiate conversation. It's around other kids that she doesn't join in and her teacher tells me that she always wants to help the teachers, hold their hands and when they try to encourage her to play with the kids she shies away and ends up walking around on her own. She parallel plays rather than joining in.
    In the childcare environment I wasn't concerned as I knew the teachers could give her enough attention but at big school I know she won't have that.

    Re. seeing a psych- I told my DS that we are going to see a nice lady who wants to have chat about how he is going. Then I think at the initial consult we told him that she is great to chat to about feelings, and if he has any tricky feelings then she is really helpful to think of ways to fix them.

    BTW often on enrolment forms they will ask you if your child knows any other kids that are enrolling, so they can try and put them in the same class.

    Thanks, that really helps I didn't think of putting it that way!

    Have been chatting to dh about this and for now we want to wait and see how she goes during orientation and first few weeks of school. We will then speak with the teachers and decide from there if she needs professional support.
