My son is 6 yrs. old he is in ukg currently, He good in his memory, writing and his visual memory is good. My concern is he regular speaking is less, and when we ask about what happened in school or what he did, unable to tell and sometimes we don't understand most of time what he is trying to communicate. When it comes to ads or songs he remembers and he says, Memory is too good. Doctor said he is hyper active When we ask him to do his school home work so fast he runs off. In school he doesn’t sit in place, but before coming he finishes regular school work We take him to park regularly ,so that he mingle with other kids he does but other kids same like us don’t understand what is telling. Very disciplined ask permission before he does anything, himself dose he regular home activity (wearing his dress, wash room activity) Active kid whenever we ask a new question, he will repeat the same questioned eg…. who are he also repeat the same coz he doesn’t no answer. Reply immediately without even thinking(fast Reply in same speed what we questioned. Suggestions pls.

Hi Farooq! From whatever I have been able to collec from yr description is: that the child is unable to express self. This is could be due to many reasons: 1. Many languages being spoken at home. language used by mother is different, father/grandparents speak in some other language and in school there is some other language being used to communicate. So while speaking child speaks a mixture of these thereby lack of clarity 2. There is no clarity of thoughts. As u said he doesn't know the answer. So he repeats the question. 3. There is some speech related disorder which might require intervention from a speech therapist. 4. May be the child info processing speed is too fast and when it comes to expression there is a matmatch, the result is jumbled up words. 5. U also said he is hyperactive,though this is a big term and needs proper assessment before being used, it can be dealt with expert's advice. try out following options. 1. Whenever u ask him something, first clarify whether he has understood the question .if no please repeat slowly twice or thrice. 2. While he is speaking please do not interrupt. Once he has finished ask him to repeat self slowly to understand what he was trying to say. 3. Find out letters with which he has problem. practice repeating words with those letters often. 4. Give him small instructions with few words say -please bring the newspaper from the other room. Repeat if need be. Ask him to repeat what he has understood. Praise him for completing the task. 5. When he demands something ask him to say in one complete sentence rather than using just one word. 6. When u go out with him, give him the opportunity to speak with others say the shopkeeper, relatives etc. 7. Get a thorough check up done from an expert. 8. Work in the direction of how to deal with ADHD after proper assessment from an expert. 9. Check whether the work he finishes in school, is by copying from classmates notebooks. As this could mean he is not able to understand what the teacher is teaching due to either language related issue or hyperactivity or inability to comprehend what is being taught. Hope this helps!
