Speech/language therapist

So my sons pre-school are wanting to refer him to a speech and language therapist. The reason they have given is the lack of understanding in a group environment. He would rather go play on his own or doesn't quite get what's going on in the group. He's 3 and can hold down a good conversation with you although he does tend to go off and chat about other random things which doesn't bother me at the moment as he's 3 and that's what 3 year olds do. Not sure what I want from this thread really? I just felt like a failure when they asked me about it. Felt like I had done something wrong or not enough. Anyone else had this for the same reasoning? X

Oh no. I just felt like I had failed at something. I still don't fully understand why they have referred him, he has selective hearing and would rather be on his own sometimes. I don't think there's anything wrong with that or is there? X

Don't feel like a failure. They've raised some concerns, which means they are on the ball. If it is nothing then no harm done; if it turns out that your DS needs some extra help then you are in the system early,, which is a huge advantage.
