    Anyone ever heard of this? Is it age appropriate?

    I just came across this website and thought I would ask the
    experts. I am a speech pathologist and recently evaluated
    a 4 year old female. Mother and teacher expressed concern
    regarding the child's inability to name alphabet letters.
    They reported the child labels letters (examples below) as
    follows: W= child responds "starts with Will"; G= starts
    with Gabby; J= Jeremiah, S= Sophia. This child is also
    unable to rote count or identify numbers.
    Is this normal for a 4 year old who has been in daycare
    since birth and preschool this entire academic year? If
    not typical, does anyone know what her errors may
    indicate? Early dyslexia? Early Processing/Memory
    problems? Her naming ability was age appropriate given the
    Expressive One Word Picture Vocabulary Test. I'm not sure
    how this website works but my email is afreeman@bmhsc.org
    if you have further questions or comments.
