She can't carry on any kind of conversation unless it's just answering yes or no. She also had no concept of time, if you ask her when she did something she will tell you something but it's never when it actually happened. She does well in school but the teacher has noticed this.
I'm hoping I can find some answers to these things before she gets too old. If it's nothing to worry about, then I can stop worrying.
I have a child that is 7. With similar concerns. How are her social interactions with her peers. My little girl preferred books to peers of age level. Her play was real and how you are" supposed to play with objects or toy. Most important of all as her mother what do you believe. You know her better than anyone, try to put emotions aside and think about her only. You've seen her grow day by day. If u can't stop worrying maybe you know a trip to a specialist compared to the possibilities rolling around your head. Pick up the phone and be that ;) worried mom. Good luck and God Bless your family
I have a 7 yr. old son with similar problems. He has been diagnosed with mixed receptive expressive language disorder. He mostly can only carry on conversations with answers he has heard other people use. When I ask him about his day at school some of the things are acurate others have nothing to do with school. He just guesses at answering questions alot of the time. But he has made all A's. I would recommend a specialist appt. asap.
Thank you for the answer, this might be her problem. I'll do some more reading on this disorder.
I'm her grandmother and I have to convince her mother (my daughter) and she can convince her dad. Everyone that is around her sees the problem, everyone but her parents.
Thanks again for the response.
Thanks for your answer on this. She gets by in a social situation. I'm not sure how she acts in social situations, she does pretty good with her cousins, but now that I've had some feedback I'll pay closer attention when they play. I'm her grandmother and so worried that her parents don't see it. They think all is alright, she's making good grades but her teacher has said that she does have a problem with the same thing that I'm worried about. I guess her parents think she will outgrow it. All of my other grand-kids do well. Her mother thinks I'm picking on her, so it's be darned if I do and be darned if I don't.
