    Pretty proud of my kid. Starting school next year (turns 5 in January) and I have been sending him to "homework club" which is a little group of kids in the library with a teacher on Monday afternoons, for a few months now. I set up up with some writing to copy, and then leave him to it and come grab him when it's finished. The teacher supervises but doesn't help him.
    I think he is doing super well

    Oh yes, I should have mentioned this. Like any "supplement", your body will absorb any it is lacking but once you get to normal levels it should flush it out with your bodily waste. Which means if you are low, it will work but if you have adequate amounts already, then it will likely just go straight through your body and out.

    @Ahalfdozen I agree with Monnie - your DS is going so well with his handwriting! Fantastic

    DS had his first primary school transition session yesterday - pleased to say it went really well! It was only for an hour, but the teacher's feedback was quite positive.

    I love that the children are so well supported. The class has about 10 students and 3 teachers. If one of the children gets restless and needs a sensory break, a teacher will take them outside for a quick jump on the trampoline or a little play at the sensory playground and bring them back to class.

    Looking forward to next week's session, which will be 2 hours.

    It's a support class within a main****** public school. The plan will be to integrate him into a main****** class down the track (when he is deemed ready).

    Choosing a school is such an important decision - you just really need that feeling the school you choose is confident about helping children with additional needs.

    I've toured two main****** schools locally and both gave me the impression that they would be capable and supportive should DS end up attending there later on (which is really reassuring).

    It looks like he's doing amazingly well with his handwriting!

    So glad to hear your DS went well at school transition. What a relief for you and your DH. The set up there sounds amazing and hopefully he will thrive once settled in. Good luck for the next transition!

    DD is getting tired now - Term 4 feels long already! There are lots of social events on and various other things through school, which she loves but finds exhausting. Plus her and DS both have colds which isn't helping. In positive news, we recently purchased (with funding) some monkey bars, climbing equipment, swing, etc. and DD is loving it! I am hoping it will really help with her gross motor skills, strength and coordination. We have also started discussing teacher choice for next year and transition to Grade 1. I really really hope we get a great teacher as I think it could make all the difference.
