Preparing a child for kindergarten and success throughout school – BMC on The Oakland Press

Lori Edelson, LMSW, ACSW, BCD, LMFT, and owner of the Birmingham Maple Clinic, was recently featured on The Oakland Press to discuss tips for preparing your child for kindergarden, and how doing so can prepare them with useful skills that will help them throughout their school career. She notes that good habits like exposure to books, learning the importance of effective communication, and developing fine motor skills like coloring and painting can be critical to preparing your child for the new challenges that school brings. Lori notes that:

“One of the most vital questions parents should consider during the summer is how to best prepare their children for the coming school year. This is an especially important and emotional time for parents whose children are about to begin kindergarten. Preparation for kindergarten involves a combination of important new social and emotional challenges alongside academic and developmental skill building.”
