Ok, I dont know if I'm jumping the gun here or not. I posted last week that Im concerned about my 3.5yo DS.
I'm having a meeting with preschool tomorrow (standard meeting, not anything out of the ordinary) just to talk about how he's going and some issues.
So, this is what was picked up at school.
-Speech issue for his age - annunciation quite poor, cant say 'S', still replaces 'F' with a 'P'.
-Very very easily distracted, poor attention span (I have noticed this at home too).
Ok at home, this is what he's like...
-Very clingy to me.
-Very poor eater, only likes hot foods not cold food.
-Sleeps poorly overnight, currently sleeps with me.
-Gets a bit 'nervous' I guess at certain things, he loves swimming but hates swimming lessons (dont know if this is normal or not, but I think its just coz he hates taking directions from the teacher).
There have been some changes at home, my DH is working interstate and only comes home on weekends, I'm sure the kids notice his absence, I would assume that its affected DS more than his little brother.
So anyways we've been in contact with a speech pathologist and we will be looking into that shortly.
I also do think that he has very large tonsils and adenoids, which I'm going to go speak to the Dr about.. he snores when he's starting to get sick (and he's been sick the entire winter really), and I think there could be an issue with this, which if removed, perhaps would even help his eating and sleeping habits.
He is also very small compared to other kids his age.. His dad is short (im quite tall for a girl) and he weighs next to nothing.. but I didnt eat much either when I was his age..
But I'm still concerned about the lack of attention span. I also wouldnt have thought twice about the fact that he only likes hot food (I'm a bit like this too) except that a facebook friend's kid just got diagnosed with sensory issues and she listed what his issues were on facebook... So now I wonder whether my DS has something similar.
I know I could be overreacting and maybe am.. I just don't know where to go with this..
He's such a funny kid, he smiles alot, laughs, sings songs off the radio and is such a wonderful little boy... He's also great at soccer (he does little kickers) and he is really good at focusing on kicking - he definitely has great reflexes.
So can anyone point me where to go with this...
Whats my next step?
