Dear Friends,

I’m in More Magazine this month! If you live in the U.S., pick up a copy of the February issue of More Magazine with Emma Thompson on the cover (not Cynthia Nixon - that’s just an example). In it, there is a story about six women who reinvented themselves (including yours truly) and a full-page photo of moi standing on our balcony. Here’s t... Read more of this blog post »

“Why is this important for school success? To get along in kindergarten, your child should know information like colors, shapes, seasons, holidays, farm animals, types of transportation, fruits, and vegetables—all the basics that children are exposed to through picture books, preschool, and life itself. He will be expected to demonstrate age-appropriate social standards and behavior. If he knocks over someone’s art project, he should know to apologize and help pick it up.”

“When your child is tested, the examiner might ask, “Why do we go to the dentist?” “Would you find a tiger in a zoo or on a farm?” “What should you do if you step on somebody’s toe by accident?”

“When your child is tested, the examiner will observe his ability to use language in the course of being evaluated. If a question requires your child to use spoken words to respond (versus drawing or pointing), his expressive language is being assessed. Plus, several subtests are designed to measure a child’s expressive language capacity. When your child is asked, “What is a dog?” the examiner will evaluate the quality of the expressive language he uses in responding.”
