"I printed this out to take into my granddaughters preschool. They wanted
her tested for autism. Her mother was hysterical! She is very bright,
creative and loves to sing......she isn't austic.....she is three, she
will be four in July. She has a 6 year old sister.
"This has helped with my child study! And lots of my class!! Thank you!!
"Very helpful with my child study. :)
"This was an AWESOME article for me (a Mother of two children) to read. My
Son's almost 15yrs. old and my Daughter is 3.5yrs old. Needless to say,
but the 11 year difference in their ages can be very trying for Mama and
Papa!! Not only that, but when my Son was a baby I read everything I could
get my hands on to help me be a great 1st time Mother. Now, this amazing
article helped me become more informed about knowing what my 3yrs old is
thinking. Thank you! Sincerley, Heather B.
"My daughter is 2.5 years old and can read a bit, do simple arithmetic and
speaks in sentences like these: "Mommy, I am about to lose my patience! I
said I wanted to watch TV BEFORE breakfast not after!". She has been
potty trained since she was 15 months old. This article has made me
realize that I need to ensure my little girl is properly stimulated and
not bored. Thank you.
"I think it is time for me to talk to the pediatrician to see what is wrong
with my son. He will be 6 in December and only exhibits some of these
traits. He starts kindergarten in the fall, and I am afraid that he is
going to be labeled "remedial" from the beginning. Teachers in a small
area like this give up on those kids very quickly, and school becomes a
chore. I am concerned that he's going to end up hating school because it
is difficult, or because he is behind the other children
"this has really helped me with my college childcare assignments. thankks!!"
"This website helped me so much with a research assignment for my Child
Care class, thankyou!!"
"Thanks for this. I'm a Filipina mom of 4year 10mos old boy, he's already
in kindergarten or preparatory in the philippines. we've been told that
he's younger for his grade level. but most of the 4year olds to 5year olds
milestones are already exhibited by him. I'm initially worried that he
will have a hard time in the writing and reading part in school, but he is
a very eloquent speaker though! This is definitely a great read! :-) "

needs work.This article helped me know the social and emotional norms for
the ages 3-5 years of age.very well done thanks for the help"
"i used this site to do a research paper at school.it help remarkably so
"This site has helped me a lot with a two-page paper I had to write. I knew
most of this, but somethings I hadn't learned yet, and it was very useful!
I'm going to be a in a special program at my highschool to be a pre-school
teacher this year, and this gives me greater insight to what to look
forward to. Thanks so much."

understanding children in better way and help me to guide parents and
"This site is fully sick,
The makers should be proud.

easy to use.

"I am studying Certificate 111 In Children's Services at TAFE and this has
helped a lot with one of my assignments which is a developmental profile
of a focus child.
"Thank you. Gives a quick glance at the child's insight. Very useful article!"
"I am really concerned for my son and his development at school. He's in Pre-school because his birthday is November 9th. At the parent-teacher conference we were told that he's doing great but as far as the curriculum there was nothing left for him to learn. I was also advised by a teacher to stop pushing him to learn mor which i don't push. He has an older brother who reads and does homework and he wanst to do the same things. I have Pre-school & Kindergarten workbooks, and he has mastered the Pre-school and thinks there boring. He even did the work independently and finished the pages correctly. A close friend in his class turned 5 in mid-October and was moved to a kindergarten class and my son was so upset that he didn't go and he keeps talking about it. I don't know what to do because I as told that there are no exceptions made to move a child to another class but it was done for the girl. He is beginning to read by sounding out letters, can right his first & last name, !
does simple adding up to 10 fingers, ties his shoes, rote count, identifies and writes all 26 alphabets,writes numbers, knows his colors and shapes, knows opposites, big & small, patterns, story order sequence ( 1ST, 2ND, Last) and cuts weel to be a lefty. I'm TRULY STUCK. Now he's becoming disinterested in school except for the days he just feels like playing. I don't know what else to do? I'm not going to 'Slow Him Down' as was reccommended. Do you have any suggestions?"
