jacqui in mo Posted July 28, 2008 Share Posted July 28, 2008 My 6 yo son is beginning to worry me & I don't know if I'm just being a worrywart or if I need to look into outside help. Here are the things that are bothering me: He is still having trouble with irregular past tense verbs (ie I cutted it. He hitted it). Misuse of tag questions: ie He plays ball, do he? instead of: He plays ball, doesn't he. (He asks these kinds of questions all the time) He has an odd, unusual sort of repetitions at the End of sentences: ie: I got the boxes...xes....xes. I want to hop...p...p. It's time to go....go....go. It's somewhat like stuttering but nothing like I've seen before (I'm a speech therapist). He still cannot keep his pants dry during the day. We've tried getting on a schedule, using a timer & that works at first, but then the timer may get out of sync with his actual bladder needs & we aren't able to keep him dry. He gets distracted very easily from doing tasks he is asked to do such as getting dressed. You usually have to stand over him to help him complete a task. (Yet he is capable of doing them on his own, but just not consistently) Makes me very worried about trying to do 1st grade with him this year (while I also have 2 older children to work with)To give you a balanced picture, he is learning to read & write pretty well and will sit & look through books on his own for up to 20 minutes. He's very, very talkative & will talk to anyone who will listen. So with this incomplete picture I've presented, what do you think? Am I being overly concerned (maybe my ST background & having 2 relatively easy older children are making me more anxious?) Anyone with a child like this?
