I have a 6-year-old boy, in kindergarten. He is behind on identifying numbers and certain letters/sounds at the midterm in kindergarten. His peers have moved on as has the kindergarten curriculum. He had a speech delay and did not talk at all until about 3 years old. He had a year of speech therapy, which I believe helped immensely. He speaks very well now, and I have no doubts in my mind he is very capable of the curriculum, I just think he is always one of the last to catch on or attain the skill for what is "typical" or "standard". His doctor said this would be normal. He has recently stated that he feels like he is behind his classmates and does not know his numbers or letters. I have tried to help, but he (and I) feel it would better serve him if he had a tutor.
