My 3 year old--with special needs...

My son is 3 now and it's time for me to (and I DONT want to do this!) get prepared for him to go to preschool next year. He has Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, so he isn't quite your "average" 3 year old. anyone have any advice on good fun ways to teach him to share and not throw things??? I know that he does not understand that throwing toys can be dangerous when other kids are around, and I don't want him to think that I'm trying to teach him not to play. He is not to the point where he understands many words, and he does not speak. He is an only child, so it's not like brothers and sisters can help out with this! Any adice would be wonderful!

  • Is he going to a school where his teachers will work with his individual challenges? I would think his teachers would be your biggest support in his success. Right off the top of my head I would think soft toy playing might be best as he is learning. HTH ((hugs))

  • I am not familiar with his condition. Maybe try to correct him every time you play together and see if that helps. Also, see if there are any areas around where he can play with other children and maybe get used to playing with other kids

  • i'm not familiarwith his syndrome, but i would suggest joining some play groups, and working with him there, where you can be involved with ihm 100%.
