1 Bump

3 and puzzled.

My step daughter is 3 years old, she is bright, at least most think so. And yet she can't remember number or letters in order. We have been working with her sense she was two and It hasn't gotten much better. I don't understand, I'm a very impatient person so I feel as if I'm failing when she doesn't get it right. Is this normal? Or could it be Add or ADHD?
( I have looked up more symptoms of ADHD, and most symptoms seem to match, but they say to also make note that It could be where she is still really young.)
I would really appreciate any feed back! Thanx.

  • Some children just learn at a slower rate- as long as you're patient, it will come. If it's just not coming when she's 4 or so, I would suggest seeking out resources like a speech-language pathologist or maybe someone who deals with disorders like dyslexia or other neurological disorders.

  • She is probably just Not interested yet. I would not read into it so much. They all learn at their own pace. As long as there are no other unusual behavioral issues, I would not be concerned.
