  • If they won't test him for another two years, I'd just try to be patient with him and let him know that it's okay and that it takes time to learn things.

  • I got frusterated with my son when he was about 4. We had alphabet flashcards and we would go through them together. Then if I scattered them on the floor and asked him to find a certain letter, he would. Then I would hold one up and ask him what it was and he couldn't tell me. Even if he just pointed it out a minute ago. Same with colors. I was told that this was just their normal learning process. Finding the right letter and actually being able to tell me what it was were two different learning processes. He is 7-1/2 now and seems to be right on track.
