My four year old will count to to nine and with help ten. We will practice a couple of times and she will count to ten pausing after nine and then finally say ten. Shortly after I will ask her to count to ten and after nine she will say six or forty! I say no ten come after nine and tell her to start again and still the same response. She also can't recognize her numbers even after I have should her what its looks like. I'm wondering if I'm putting to much into this or I'd she has a learning disability.

my daughter is 3 and counts to 14. we just work with her on a daily basis and sing her numbers and make a game out of it. I'll ask her how many types she has or ask her to help me count out things at the store (fruit) when we go grocery shopping. also teaches her to help out.

yea, i think the singing would help. you can just always check youtube for counting songs like the 10LITTLE INDIANS. and whenever you're gonna give her any item that you can count, then do so, so she'll get use to it. even tiny cereal crumbs, just so it would be more fun for her.

my baby is only two years old and she can count one and two. i think it's still early for your kid, maybe showing her videos of counting will help her remember better. i read somewhere that they learn faster based on what they see and hear. it might work.
