My granddaughter can tell you the sounds of each letter, but she can' seem to remember the names of the letters or remember her colors. She can't count to 10 either. She is 5 and will be 6 in March, but the school will not let her start kindergarten because of this.
She is a bright child and well behaved. She loves watching Leap Frog DVDs with the letters and sounds. When you try to teach her, she seems to think it too hard; she either tries to do it her way or wants to go play, whatever will seem to work to get her out of it. One day she might know it but most of the time not. She has three older brothers, the oldest is turning 12 in February and she has a sister that is 2 months old. She wants to go to school like her brothers.
Is there name for this, has any one else had this problem?
