Hold back a hearing impaired child?
04/28/2012 at 00:35 AM

My daughter is 5, and hearing impaired. We are starting to teach her ASL. She has a late August b-day and is thus young in her class. She is a bit behind, but not significantly. We'll be moving her to another school next year. We are in discussion as to whether to enroll her in Kindergarten (treating this year as prep-K) or 1st grade. Any advice or thoughts?

If she were a boy, I'd say definitely give 'him' another year. Since she's a girl, I'd talk it over with her teacher.
