4. Hi I am Tikki, and I am the care-taker and....
grandmother of a little guy (age 4 years old) who was diagnosed with ppd-nos and
started a Spec Ed preschool last March.

School started this fall with four boys (including my grandson) all identified as mild to moderate
on the spectrum. As each new student (all boys and now 7 of them) is added to the class my little guy gets
more off task and out of control in the classroom.

He was like the role-model for control when school started this fall.
I believe he will start feeling comfortable with new kids in the class.

Adjustment can be hard.

I sure love him.
