The nephew has just finished his summer class of speech therapy.  He got four smileys from his teacher and we are so proud of him.  We are glad that the nephew shows development in speaking.  He can slowly communicate with us now and we are so happy for him.  He will continue his therapy for six months for him to develop more.  We were advice by the teacher to enroll the nephew in regular class for him to interact with other kids.  The decision of the sister to have home schooling for the nephew is cancelled.  Because we will enroll him in regular class because he is normal just that his development is slow.

The sister is seeking advices from friends and co-teacher about her son’s condition.  And home schooling is their advices, and then go to developmental pediatrician for evaluation.  However, the nephew’s teacher at speech therapy class told us to have him enrolled in regular class. And told us that the nephew is now ready to go to school and be with other kids, provided that the student in his class should be at most 15 students.  More than 15 students are not good for him.  It would be more crowded for him and he will not be able to concentrate.  The nephew is now enrolled and their classes will start on June 13, 2017.  The nephew will continue his therapy for six months, and it will be once a week since he will attend regular class on weekdays.  Good luck to the nephew.  Long way to go and we are sure that you will go well and will make us all proud of you!

Six Months Therapy

With all the developments on the nephew’s after a year as pre-schooler, the sister (his mother) still think that the nephew is lacking.  He still needs improvement to be able to cope up with other kids.  The sister brought him to the child therapy center.  The director told the sister that the nephew is to shy.  He did not belong to the special cases, but he is at risk.  If we will not enroll him in therapy class the nephew may belong to the special child cases.  We felt sad for the nephew, and again the sister partly blaming herself for what happened to her son.  If only she is not a working mom, she my give more time to her kids.

Anyways, the nephew will undergo six (6) months therapy sessions.  He can enroll in normal class but with at maximum of 20 students only.  The nephew will go to school in the morning and therapy in the afternoon.  The nephew starts the therapy last month and so far the nephew has development.  If the nephew will get better before six months, we can stop the therapy and we will just do it at home.  The director will conduct seminars to the parents and guardians for us to know how to do the follow up therapy at home.  Hopefully the nephew will get better soon and he will be less shy.

Back to school

Tomorrow is the first day of school of my nephew after two weeks of vacation/sembreak.  It’s gonna be a battle persuading him to go to school especially now that his mom is home.  His mom, my sister just gave birth last October 31st and she is on maternity leave for two months.  I say it is a battle because the nephew is a mama’s boy.  When his mother is around he likes to be with her all the time.  He will not like to go out or go to school knowing that his mom is at home.  Just like what happen when his mother leave work for a day because of prenatal check up.

I am back to waking up early tomorrow, getting myself ready and the nephew and sending him off to school and fetching him.  Tomorrow they will start to do more activities in writing, and toothbrush lesson too.  I felt guilty because I did not teach him to write his name and letters.  I just allow him to play with his cousins and brother during sembreak/vacation.  Well, I just want him to enjoy moments with his cousins and brother.  I do hope that the nephew will show more improvements so he can be ready for kindergarten.  The nephew is in nursery class by the way, preparing him for kindergarten.

Encouraging him to do good

The results of the examinations of my nephew at school is not so good.  Though he got perfect score in other subjects, but his results in mathematics is very low.  He did not even get at least half of the items.  His mother is not happy of the results but did not nag her son.  They did study and review the previous lessons, but I think the nephew is not paying much  attention.  Well, he is only five years old, kids at this age prefers just to play than study their lessons.  Anyways, we go over the test papers so we can start again reviewing for their upcoming second quarter examination.

My sister is busy preparing her papers for maternity leave and she gets home very tired, she told me to do the review for her son.  Honestly, I do not like this job but I have no choice.  I am not good at this but I will do my very best to be of help for my nephew.  We started reviewing his lessons this morning, and my goodness it is not very easy.  Good thing I have lots of patience.LOL  I told him to do good for if he will get high score, his mother will buy him the toy that he wanted.  Yes, I am encouraging and motivates him so that he will pay attentions and will put in his mind what we have reviewed.  Our review lesson went well, I am wishing the nephew good luck.
