Which Preschool is great for my preschooler who has Sensory Processing Integration Disorder?
My son is currently on an IEP and has Sensory Processing Integration Disorder. We live in Colorado Springs and would like to move to Highlands Ranch, CO. I don't want him to be labeled any differently than another child. I want him to have nurturing, loving, patient teachers that will take the time to help him get to the next developmental milestone. Does anyone have any suggestions of schools that are high quality, educational and will work with my son?
I have no knowledge of Colorado schools, however, as a parent, your job will be to continue to advocate for him. This is an untested disorder with no real known therapy other than sensory integration which can vary from school to school. Speak to the teacher, get your new pediatrician on your side and go for the best for your child.
