When Should You Be Concerned About Your Preschooler?

He has the shortest attention span in the world. He gets frustrated so easily, and slides into tantrums quickly. He has such a hard time separating from his mom at the beginning of the school day.

Does this sound like a preschooler you know? Parenting and teaching young children is a joy, but we all know that there are times when the behavior of three five year olds can be difficult to deal with. If you’ve ever found yourself examining your preschooler’s behavior and asking, “Is this just a young child being a young child, or is this something I need to be concerned about?”, we have resources that will help you answer that question.

The Early Observation Rating Scale (ELORS)

If you want to make sure a preschooler’s development is on track, you’ll want to check out the Early Observation Rating Scale (ELORS). The ELORS helps teachers and parents gather and share information about young children with specific attention to characteristics that might be early signs of learning disabilities. In addition to tracking social/emotional development, ELORS examines early literacy, math, and motor skills.
