A lot of development is seen through play and improved through play. Try not to worry as it sounds like you are at an excellent school. They have a concern and are following up on it. I assume it is an adult that is going to work with your child. Speech and language issues can impede social interaction with a child and their peers. Also, imaginative play is an important developmental milestone. Some kids also lack play skills as they didn't come upon them naturally for some reason. So, I'm not sure exactly what the issue is but when a school states a concern and are trying to follow up on it it is best to approach it with an open mind. He is young and if there is an issue, now is the time to handle it. Early intervention can do wonders. Good luck.
