has any got any advice my 4 year old does not speak at school to class freinds or teachers, he talks at home but when we have people round he does not talk even family hes grown up with. when we took him to hospital as he broke his arm he did not speak a word to the doctors. he has always had people around him and we have socialised him with others lots. should i be worried?what can i do to encourage him ? or should i just let him get there in his own time?
thanks

He isn't in school we are trying to get him into pre school but its not free and it's a random drawing so we will have to see if he gets in! When he went to his early childhood screening they said they couldnt help us get him in anywhere either! so we are on our own hopefully we can get him into something so he can learn to talk to ppl before kindergarden starts

my lads the same he wont speak when his auntie is here... how your lil lad getting on at nursery, my phillip started in september and last week we were plulled up and they are now saying that its at the point were they are conserned so they are pushing him to talk by getting him to do lil errands and things in the class. they have put him on a personal plan which sets out what they expect him to acheve each term. our worry is that its just gunna make him worse but they say it will make sure he get help if needed at full time school. the silly thing is hes a bright lil lad but they dont know that coz he does not talk to his teachers. its so hard to know how to help them
