Overview
Is your sensitive preschooler starting school soon? Do you want your child to THRIVE, and not just 'cope'? You are not alone. Every child is unique, and therefore every child has unique needs. But what if your school starter's subtle differences set them apart from their peers? As your child prepares to start school, are you worried about: • How your anxious child will manage at 'big school'? • How teachers will handle your child's emotional or behavioural vulnerabilities? • The effect your complex family could have on your child's education? • The impact of your child's learning, social or sensory processing challenges? • Your unfamiliarity with Australian schools and where you fit in? Take heart, because School Ready is the 'sensitive' school readiness guide you've been looking for.
