Sending child to kindergarten too early??

My son is 5 years old, and my mother in law wont stop harping for me to send him to kindergarten in the fall. He has some developmental delays. Is currently in ot and pt, as well as speech therapy. His teachers from last year recomend him to stay in the cese program. She texts and calls every week at least once to demand I put him in kindergarten. My husband agreed with me at first, but now she has talked him into putting my son in kindergarten. She wants me to put hhim the special ed program, but I feel if I do that he will be behind his classmates his whole life and if I can avoid it by having him catch up in the cese it makes more sense. Mind you she is the daycare provider but only 3 days a week, and the cese program is only a half of a day. I dont feel he is ready and dont want to set him up for failure. Am I being ridiculous???

Hello! Having seen what delayed learning is like to deal with in my own family (sensory processing disorder), I can only advise to go with your instinct. There is absolutely nothing wrong with waiting to send your child a year after the "normal" or "appropriate" age that our state of residence has labelled. If he isn't ready, then he isn't ready.
