My son is 6 years old and adopted at age 4 from a foreign country. He continued to only speak his language, Bulgarian, for 1.5 years. He was considered advanced in intelligence and at age 4.5 when tested in Bulgarian scored 158 on WPPSI IQ test. He started Kindergarten 1 month shy of his 6th birthday at a private school. There are only 15 kids in his class and 7 are ‘gifted’ 4 year olds. It is not a gifted school but does attract a lot of kids who are gifted as well as a lot of kids who are dyslexic and others who have been diagnosed autistic. I was told my child is behind. He can’t count past 12 (but he used to count to over 100 in Bulgarian-now he can’t count past 5 in Bulgarian); he doesn’t know any letter sounds. I’m not the type of parent to drill my child but I feel like I’ve failed him and am now considering programs like Kumon or Sylan. Any advice appreciated.Answer Question
