Millions of parents have the same question every year,” Is my child ready to start Kindergarten? Ready to move on to the next grade?” Normal development in the early elementary years varies widely.
For a child’s readiness for school is based not only on their age and intellectual readiness, but also on their physical, emotional and social maturity. No child will excel in all five areas. Parents must assess each child’s capabilities as a whole. The question of school readiness is complex, whether a child on the immature end of the developmental curve, educationally, physically, socially, or emotionally, should move on or repeat an early grade.
For starters, look at what the child can do. How far can the child count? Can the child recognise his/her own name? Does the child know any letters of the alphabet? Is the child starting to try to write? If you say yes to all, or even some, of these, chances are your child can start school.
If you have child in preschool, the teachers there can tell you if they think your child is ready for school. If you have a preschool aged child who is not in preschool, it is highly recommend it. It gets the child used to being left, being with other kids, learning, etc.
Many preschools and kindergartens will help you assess your child’s school readiness, and you should ask for a formal assessment. Some children adjust better when they wait until age six to start school. If you do make the decision to wait a year, you should definitely enroll him in an educational pre-K program to build his skills during this important learning year.
The first goal that should point the child and adolescent psychiatrist is to reach a diagnosis. The diagnostic process takes time, exploration, extensive and profound knowledge and great capacity for reflection. The basic tool for diagnosis remains the interview with the patient and his family, together and / or separated. If necessary, an appeal to some specific studies that are performed by other technicians of the Mental Health team: psychological study, psychomotor evaluation, educational assessment, language assessment, biological studies, etc..
The diagnosis involves not only say, “This child is such a thing.” A global diagnosis not only puts a name to what is happening to the child, but also analyzed the whole situation surrounding and environment.
To diagnose means to understand the situation and provide a seat on a very safe treatment recommendation.
It is a fundamental part of the consultation that the technician and the patient and his family understand each other. The diagnosis should be shared with the child’s parents, in terms that are comprehensible. The psychiatrist is a doctor and as such should be able to explain the patient’s understanding of the condition that affects him. The psychiatrist is a person and as such should be able to speak the language and communicate with people who asks for help in terms that can be understood.
We call for dignified and respectful of those who consult the child psychiatrist: the patient and his family are entitled to know, be informed and decide which are ultimately willing to risk.
