I agree with Freya. Our son is very young for his age, very bright - although that wasn't always apparent at primary - and really struggled socially at primary. He's now at a very selective grammar where he found lots of like-minded geeky boys; while there have been ups and downs he's made more friends in the first term than he made in 7 years at primary and he seems to get on well with almost everyone.
this is SO encouraging, Mike, and what I am praying will happen to my youngest.
How old is your daughter, 3pink?? (great name by the way, I've just got it, durrr, why didn't I think of 2blue!) Remember, too, that they're not set in stone, these children of ours, huge changes (for good and bad
) can happen so don't despair yet! My bro was nearly on some remedial reading scheme, they were minutes, apparently, from swamping him with specialists (he was 8 and couldn't really read). Now he speaks 4 languages and is a v successful journalist.
It can - and will - all just keep on changing. The difficulty is to avoid pigeon-holing (I do it, to my shame and really don't mean to
) - a fine line between recognising what they are and panicking about it!
