That is really the question at the moment.
But Dakin isn't even 2.5 years old!! Why are you worrying about this already?
Well, 'cuz here in Texas special needs kiddos qualify for services through the school districts at age 3. Soooo...Dakin could attend school as early as next November 1st, in a class called PPCD. PPCD is a class geared toward special needs kiddos at age 3--helping them to adjust, as well as socialize and put them in a position where the adaptive technology team can begin to help. For Dakin, he wouldn't actually start start until next-March-ish, because he'd be homebound during the flu season, but he would be in the system. Presumably he would be in there for a year or so, depending on when their kindergarten cutoff is, then on to PreK and kindergarten.
I have been debating this for some time now, going back and forth between this and homeschooling. While I feel perfectly capable of homeschooling Dakin up to a point (I'm a teacher), I feel that in his situation it would probably be best to have him in a place where he would have access to the adaptive technology that would help him.
Besides the fact our local school district is tiny and renowned. Good stuff. I actually got to sub in the PPCD class the other day, and it's that that decided me.
So in a year, my baby will be in school! (for three hours a day) AGH!!!
