I have a 3 year old boy and have been very concerned lately that he may have some sort of an attention deficit disorder. He has no interest in writing or drawing or doing puzzles of any sort. When I sit him down with a set of blocks or colors, he asks me to do the task and then he just runs away. The maximum any new toy can hold his attention is a couple of minutes. The only toys he is interested in are cars - he is obsessed with cars and can now recognise a good number of cars by their logos. He can identify alphabets more or less, though he has no interest in trying to write one or play with those simple alphabet games. He can count upto 10 and more pretty easily. He loves to be read to and can sit down with books for a good 30 mins to an hour, as I read to him. He is not hyper usually and sleeps well at night. He was a late talker - he started talking when he was more than 2 but he communicates well now and seems to have a decent vocabulary. I am also concerned about his fine motor skills - he does not like to eat on his own and doesnt even like to hold a crayon.
