He knows all of his colors and shapes.
His teacher is telling me to work with him more at home. I try flash card. I have tried games. I have tried using crafts. I have tried just sitting down with him and showing him. He gets frusterated. If I keep trying to push him, he gets so frusterated he cries.
He is a high energy kid and has a low attention span but no other signs of ADHD. It has been mentioned and his pedi offered to start him on meds but ultimately agrees with me that at this point he doesn't need it.
I think park of the problem may be his teacher. I have had issues upon issues with her this year and she has not been a good fit for him. But I know that sometimes that happens.
He is such a sweet kid but he seems so behind.
They say not to compare siblings but it is hard. His brother is only a year older. He is very, very smart so it is hard for me to know what is normal at this age and what isn't.
Should I be worried?
Eta these last few days I have been paying super close attention when I am working with him. Here are some things have noticed:
He cannot correctly draw a circle but he does get the general shape.
He cannot draw a strait line.
When writing his name, he writes his A upside down even after I show him and give him several examples of how to do it correctly.
