I have a question re. my son who started pre-school in September of this year. He is the youngest in the class and his teacher told me that although he is the most advanced in terms of knowledge (he knows his numbers and A,B,C's) he is lagging in the social development department. She said he still parallel plays and doesn't interact directly with the other kids. He turns 3 on March 1st, and I am wondering if this is normal development for him? I am being asked to request early intervention for him to find out if he is developing normally.
He loves playing with his family and close friends and asks to play with us all the time, so I know he can play directly. He is an only child, so he hasn't had much interaction with other children up until now. I am just wondering what to do?
Really worried mom
