Yes, we withdrew her today. I haven't mentioned the things going on with her on here, because, quite honestly I didn't find it an appropriate avenue :). But her class schedule wasn't working (very little academic time), another intermediary schedule was formed but still not a "good" one (very little time in the typical kindy classroom), and we're not sure there's really any other options, even if we decided to hold an IEP (which yes, was scheduled). In the end, we felt that this was the answer-- that we are supposed to do this ourselves for her this year.
I by no means have had any issues with either of the teachers involved and are very sorry to be pulling her from their classes, specifically, and in fact still have 3 kids in one of those classes :). It was just a matter of whether we'd be ok with "ok, good, or best" and we want best for her, which right now means homeschooling.
We are very blessed to have a welcoming church which, since she isn't of "legal age" of HAVING to go to school, has allowed her to take part in their Kids' Adventure Day program in their oldest class (typically 3-4 yr olds). She will be going there for "social" time and to get that interaction with friends that she craves :). She'll then work with me at home on all the academics as we build our homeschool curriculum.
We are excited about what this year will bring for Brianna and for each of our children in the different ways God has made them and different ways that each of them learns best.
Now... all you homeschooling moms... :) :) Be ready for some questions! Like... if you homeschool your child with disabilities, do you use a specific curriculum, or do you do an 'eclectic' approach? Either way, what programs/curriculum do you use? I have all kinds of things already from our many adventures just in raising our kids, but are interested in other things for schooling as well.
The next great adventure... :)
