Abstract

Starting school is an important moment in growing up for both the child and the parent. How this period will go depends, among other things, on the maturity of the child. Criteria for assessing maturity for going to school are based on a chronological age, but also on a development stage that allows the child to respond appropriately to the requirements of the school. Prior to enrollment in school, each child undergoes physical examination and assessment by a school psychologist/pedagogue, during which his / her readiness to attend school is assessed. The basic components of assessment are physical, intellectual, social, emotional and motivational maturity. Research shows that emotional and social development is linked to academic success. It is recommended to introduce a dynamic assessment by a psychologist / pedagogue, in order to take into account not only the child's healing capacity, but also the "future development zone". The possibility of changing the paradigm from the assessment of the child and its adjustment to the school, to the assessment of the readiness of the school and the introduction of individualized teaching, is considered in order to respect the individuality of each individual child and to facilitate the adaptation and the education process.
