I think my daughter has a serious learning disability. I first noticed it a few months ago. She's 4 years old and has been counting to ten for almost a year now. However when I asked her to count ten objects on a page she can't get past #1! I thought well maybe it's a spatial reasoning isue. Not so. Part of her homework today was to say her full name first, middle, and last. Which she's known since she was 2. She couldn't tell me anything. She just sat there and said uhh... over and over again. Meanwhile her younger sister is saying her name over and over again.(not her own name her sisters) Then she started crying! So I was so upset I just put her homework up and went outside. If she can't even say her name when asked how will she make it past kindergarten next year? And every year after that requires an exam to reach the next level. I know that she knows these things because she'll tell me or I'll overhear her playing.Answer Question

My 3 year old sometimes clams up when we quiz her about what she learns. Maybe the teachers don't notice because she is doing well in school and just gets anxious when you ask her, like she doesn't want to let you down. I have a difficult time teaching my daughter academic type things because she seems to get flustered easily but doesn't great when other people teach her things. I would talk to the teacher and see if she is having problems in class and go from there. If she is having problems maybe talk to her pediatrician and get her evaluated. Good Luck.
