I'm including below an interesting article I came across this week from the New Scientist publication...the content of which I increasingly and strongly agree with. I'd argue an even later age for children to start school when they have been adopted internationally because they have soooo much other stuff to learn in terms of how to negotiate their new life. I've said it before and I'll say it again...(neuro typical, non-adopted) kids in places like Finland and Sweden don't start schooling until they are seven or eight, and kids who grow up in those countries score amongst the highest in the world academically by the time they are adults. Food for thought, no? Life is about so very much more than academics.
Here is the link (Too Much Too Young: Should Schooling Start at Age 7?) as well as the article content:
