my ds is 4 yrs old and does not know his abcs, colors,the only shapr he knows is circle or how to count to even 10..he can do to 5 but he sometimes forgets the 4 .i feel like i failed him but i didnt even begin to teach him b.c he didnt start talking til almost 3. 

he does start preschol later this month so hopefully that will help catch him up and he will exceed in school once he gets started

Don't stress yourself. If he's not even in preschool yet, he's fine.

Just because he wasn't talking doesn't mean he wasn't listening.

My son didn't start talking until 3 and a little bit later even. Keep talking to him, engaging him, and teaching him things. He'll catch right on. :)

Don't be hard on yourself. My son didn't talk until he was 3 1/2, didn't know his ABC's until he was almost 5. He is 9 now and in honors classes and 2 separate gifted programs.

It will be ok. Did he have to test into preschool? I thought for sure DS wouldn't make it but he passed with very high scores.

He will learn it when he goes to preschool.

I don't think it's that big of a deal. My son did know all of those skills by 3, but that was because he really wanted to know them.
