My 3 year old is struggling his first year of preschool. He is accelling in the academic portions of school, letter, numbers, ect. However, he is struggling socially. His teacher (and I) believe that he is getting frustrated because he lacks "social conversations". He doesn't seen to know how to express himself and his wants to other children. He talks... a lot. He just seems to be lacking the social conversations (Can I play with you? ect ect...)
I am worried. Has anyone ever experienced this before? Do you believe that he is just behind because he stayed home with me ( he is my oldest ) and was lacking in the social skills from not interacting with other children until now??

As for the aspergers... nope. I have done substantial research on this as well as recently had a discussion with his pedi. No signs of Aspergers or any other spectrum disorder.........
Tamera - Thank you for your reply.... your story is almost exactly like ours. It's nice to know that there are others out there that got the hand of it! Spoke to his teacher today and she says he is improving and now has a "buddy" in his class that he has been playing with... so hopefully he is starting to get the hang of it. Thanks again!
