Is your child neuro typical or delayed?
October 11, 2012 at 1:47 PMMy dd learned her alphabet at 2, and also how to count to 10. She is now 3.5 and can count to 40 (some times she skips 16 lol) knows and recognizes her alphabet and colors and shapes. IMHO I think she is very advanced for her age.
The only real issue I have is her not wanting to sleep alone. She sleeps between DH and I almost every night.

My son just turned 5 but I can answer most of these from memory.
Caden is not delayed in the least.....he's in the other direction. I can undestand everything he said, knew his colors, count to 10, run and jump. He's always slept in his own room.
But he does have issues of being alone. He HAS to be with someone. If I walk upstairs to put something away, he's up there with me. Dn't know why, but that's the case.
by ALWsMommaOctober 11, 2012 at 1:51 PMI understand every thing he says. He knows most of his colors and can count to 10 +. He runs/jumps and is very active. He shares a room with his little sister and doesn't like to be alone but can be.
He is a pretty average four year old
by echupkoOctober 11, 2012 at 1:52 PMMy 3 year old can do all of the things you listed. But he is scared to go into a dark room alone. He can even ride a bike with no training shekels and write his name :-)
Well my DD is only 3 but the answer is yes, I understand her. yes, she knows her colors. yes, she can count to 10 and above. she has known her letters visually since her 2nd birthday. Yes, she runs and jumps and climbs and swings off things. She's completely independent and social and has always slept alone.

Well, my daughter is 3 1/2.
She is understood by me about 85% of the time. By strangers very little but she has a speech disorder.
She knows her colors, can count to ten, runs and jumps, is ok with being alone but is afraid of the dark, she sleeps alone in her room.
by MipsyOctober 11, 2012 at 3:06 PMTy knows his colors and can count to 27 now. I understand him the most out of everyone, he has apraxia of speech and auditory processing disorder so he can be hard to understand to the untrained ear. He's been in the special education program for the last yr and getting therapy for 2yrs now. He can run and jump but he's weak on his left sided so not as well as most. He still struggles with stairs though. Ty has no issues being alone and sleeps alone. he prefers sleeping alone than with us.

My son is 5 now. his speech is still hard to understand when he is talking fast or being whiny. it's not that he doesn't know how to pronounce the words, it's just habit to say them wrong but we are slowly working on that. he's corrected a lot so far. he knows all colors and can count to 20-30 then gets confused after that. he is reading and spelling and doing simple math. he doesn't like being alone but will play in his room by himself. and he sleeps in his own bed in his room every night.
by LuvMyBoy08October 11, 2012 at 3:14 PMMy 4 year old son knows his colors, shapes, alphabet, runs, plays, can count to 50. Most of the time I can understand him
Dd is 4.5
She can count to 29, Recognizes all letters and numbers, knows all her shapes and colors. She can run and jump, is learning how to skip. She's very understandable. She has no problem being alone but doesn't understand personal space. She has never been able to put herself to sleep and last night was the 4th time sleeping on her own through the night in the last 4yrs! She sleeps no more then 4hrs a day (we are working with a neurologist).
She's not delayed but needs a bit of help getting her body to move a certain way (skipping for ex).
Dd has asperger's.
