I am dating a man with a 5 year old daughter. He reports that she was developmentally delayed as a baby and did not walk, talk, or meet other developmental milestones on time. She has completed Pre-Kindergarten and is able to write some letters and numbers with many reversals and characters written upside down or backwards. The child is verbal but frequently tantrums and whines to get her way rather than using age appropriate language. She often has a blank vacant expression with mouth hanging open. She is potty trained but does not tend personal hygeine without aid (bathing, wiping, etc). I suspect there may be mental retardation or a learning disability involved but I do not know whether to say anything to him.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
