We are halfway through first quater. I got my 5 year old sons first kindergarten progress report. In it it reads that my son can only count to 9 orally, can recognize 2 shapes, recognize 5 letters and recognize 7 numbers. It also said that he has trouble listening, follow school and classroom rules and has trouble keeping his hands to himself. I told them at his iep meeting all of this. I told them that he gets over whelmed in large groups. When he gets overwhelmed he tends to touch other people, touch objects, not listen and act out ect. I explained that he has a hard time following directions, he has a hard time listening and that sometimes he will isolate himself if he gets too overwhelmed. I also expressed my concerns about his overall academic level. All they had to say was all his problems were speech related and the fact that he's still adjusting to kindergarten. I told them I felt it was more than that but they kept reassuring me it wasn't. Based on the progress report do you guys thinks it might be something more?
