MY SON IS 2. WILL BE 3 IN MAY. HE IS VERY SMART FOR HIS AGE HE CAN COUNT TO 20. KNOWS ANIMALS, MANNERS, KNOWS ABC AND COLORS BUT WILL SOMETIMES GET MIXED UP. CAN SPELL AND RECOGNIZE HIS NAME. AT HOME HE RUNS AROUND LIKE ANY NORMAL CHILD, PLAYS SINGS TALK YOUR HEAD OFF. THEN HE GOES TO A MOTHERS MORNING OUT PROGRAM 4DAYS A WK AND THEY SAY HE ACTS VERY SHY AND WONT SAY MUCH. AND THEY SEEMED TO THINK MY SON WASNT MATURE FOR HIS AGE OR WAS DELAYED JUST BECAUSE HE ACTS SHY. HE WILL TALK TO THEM BUT WILL SAY JUST SMALL LITTLE WORDS. IM JUST THINKING IT CUZ HE IS THERE AT SCHOOL CUZ HE ACTS NORMAL AT HOME. I WOULD JUST LIKE SOME INPUT.

THANKS

my daughter does the exact same thing! she is so shy at school but at home she chatters up a storm. i think it is just being without you and being nervous. they think she is delayed too because she won't count for them or anything! i even asked her in front of them and she just shrugs her shoulders and says, "i don't know." i think once she gets more comfortable, she will be fine. i think she is just nervous and the same can be said for your son. i would not worry so much yet, he is pretty young yet!

Could just be that he is shy away from home. Does he have any siblings? If not, maybe he is just a little overwelmed by all the other kids and adults. I would just give it time and see how he does.
