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 email@example.com
if you have further questions or comments.
