Hello everyone! I am so glad to have found this site. My son will be 4 next month. He has a speech delay and currently works with the school speech therapist once a week. He also attends a preschool through the school district. I'm concerned with some of his behaviors, so the therapist is going to set up a meeting with the school diagnostician and psychologist. I hope this is the right step, please share suggestions if not. The therapist asked that I take with his teachers to find out more information about my son in the school setting. I received an email from one of his teachers and I must say these were not a surprise and makes me more concerned. Here are some things from an email I received: He seems to have a difficult time navigating social situations. He spends a lot of time playing by himself. He plays beside but not with the other boys. He does talk to the other boys but conversation does not ensue.It seems he makes statements such as "you did the well", "look, look", "see, it's moving". There seems to be lacking the natural ease of communication that older threes display. He seems to talk to people but not with them. I'm sorry I can't be more specific. I know that when he is in the home center he will again play beside but not with the girls. At times he does initiate conversation with the girls. When we are in circle time, I notice that he has a very short attention span except when we are doing a movement or song activity. He enjoys music time. He will participate and do the movements, most of the time. He has identified shapes, colors and numbers accurately to me. He can snip with scissors very intently. He enjoys painting at the easel. He covers the entire page. When he uses the crayons or markers, it is a scribble and not a representative picture that he produces. He can tell me a lot about Thomas the Train. He seeks out the train books from the book basket. He sits in his seat for lunchtime and eats the protein item first, as is our rule. He zips and unzips his own lunchbox. He takes care of his own potty needs and is resting with less movement on his mat much better than in the beginning of the year. He understands me when I speak to him or tell him to do something. Please share your personal thoughts about this. I like that the teacher did include things that he does well along with those that he has issues with, but I'm frightened.
