I sent a note tomy son's wonderful teacher about Field day...what are the dates, will anything be modified for my son? I got a note back from the Principal (MUCH better than last year) stating that there is no way to modify the activities, but he can participate with the pre-K handicapped kids...but that would probably embarrass him. He does sound open to ideas.
What has your school done to make Field day accessible for our boys (young enough to 'do' it, that just doesn't mean the SHOULD)...Any ideas would be great!! Thanks!! Lori
My son's first grade class just did the Presidential Fitness Test. The person in charge was more than willing to modify the activities for my son, but I felt that in this case, the very nature of the test would emphasize what my son could not do that other kids could do. So, I took him out of school to go to lunch with mom during the test.
As for field day, if the activities already scheduled can't be modified, then maybe they can get creative and add some new ones. What about a frisbee throw?
