Please trust your gut on that. My son is 15 now and I still wish so much that we had waited a year to start kindergarten, or repeated kindergarten. Instead, it was 5 years of hell and then we demanded he repeat 4th grade (diagnosed in 1st). Words can’t express my regret that we just didn’t wait to start kindergarten.

It’s totally ok to make that choice.
