End of T-1 for Mia. She has grown and matured so much in this one year. We are so glad to have chosen Transitional First for her before her entrance into First grade. It gave her another year to mature and learn language. We have found both our girls need another year to master speech and language as they both came home from China as toddlers with their speech just emerging. Marissa will also go to T-1 as well...we feel...at this point. Some parents feel this extra year has implications of failure on either the child's or parents part but we welcome another year to mature and master school concepts in a non-pressured enviroment where they are nutured and not put in position of grading before they are ready. We so love the public school they attend and they get plenty of good attention to their speech needs. The teachers love my girls and for that I am so grateful. They will do well here.
