Vandana, one quick word to put your mind at rest. I tried for the longest time for my daughter to recognize colours at the age your child is now. She just would not get it. Just when I started to wonder if my child has some developmental problems, one fine day she started to recognize colours as if overnight, by magic. So dont stress out. Your child may just be a little late but he will get it and surprise you one fine day.

Hey vandana, Same problem i faced. now my child is recognizing the colors. what you do is on the whole day, you keep everything in one color, e. g yellow color: yellow food item, wear yellow clothes to ur child,give yellow toys all these steps you have to take. yes it'll take time, but really it'll help you out.

Hey Vandana, here is something that I did. My boy had these t shirts he really loved in different colors, so every day I would just put few together and ask him to fetch one, I would tell him, 'get the RED one, and watch him from a distance and keep redoing this till he would pick the right one. It took few days but it worked.. :)

And he is going to a preschool too? you may try out the following : 1. Label various coloured objects with the colour names (e. g. "RED" for a red crayon, "yellow" for a yellow coloured wall. 2. Use objects and spaces to associate with colours while speaking. (e. g. green palak, red bus, yellow mango, blue sky... ) 3. Encourage and reward whenever he is speaking and identifynig the colours. Also, would like to know so as to how are his class children doing at preschool. there may be something there you may want to check. Keep us in the loop on the progress and don't worry. Sometimes, it takes till an age of 4 to recognize colours for children.

Hi vandana. To begin with, its a fact that some children don't recognize colors even till an age of 4. Would like to understand in more detail. 1. does he recognise some colours like primary colours or none? 2. Does he speak well and can identify food, other things and 3. Has he started talking well or speaks more in sign language?
