It’s always a delight for D when she comes out of school with a sticker proudly stuck on her sweatshirt, the one below is really quite wonderful and something that we’re incredibly proud of her for.
A Head Teacher’s award. Something that has been implemented with the arrival of a new HT at D’s SN school.
So, what did our girl do to merit one of these?
She helped another child in class with their Maths, which as the HT said to me was really quite lovely in itself but it also shows that she empathised and recognised that the other child was having difficulty and it also demonstrates that D understood the task sufficiently to explain to her friend what needed to be done and how.
A big step for our girl and maybe the fact she used to absolutely love Countdown, reciting the numbers on buses and houses and we’d always play “tell me the price on the shop shelf (something that got us through shopping and distracted her from sensory issues) might have played a part?
Mega proud of our D, mega.
