Special Education Placement?

My daughter, Heather was diagnosed with a mild learning disability. She is in the middle of 1st grade. In our school system, these children are placed in a seperate class where they keep several grades together. It seems more geared for moderate learning disabilities. Is 1st grade too soon to decide? My worry is that once placed there, even if she progreses it will be hard to undo? It's my understanding they don't review whether or not the placement is appropriate again until 3rd grade. What is the best way to help Heather's leaming moving forward?
