I had a student who did not start school until he was 7. He was found when the truant officer visited the home about one of his 6 siblings. He was placed in my Kindergarten class. I was asked it sit in on an ARD it was recommended he be labeled EMR. I asked if I could work with him the rest of the year to build his background knowledge. We started having him listen to audiobooks, having older students and community volunteers come read to him. By the end of the year he was ready to go on the First grade. He was stil behind but had made so much progress they were no longer talking about labeling him EMR.
