I just picked up this thread and wanted to offer some information. I undestand it's frustrating not knowing wha tthe problem might be, but recognizing that something is off. Please try not to think the worst.
It's hard to say based on the information you provide, but these problems can be attributed to visual problems and/or language disorders. Some expressive language disorders make it look like a child isn't learning, when in fact she is.
There can be short-term memory problems but not I.Q. problems.
It is important to get a differential diagnosis, if there is a diagnosis. Some children do develop at a slower rate. Often, though, delays at age 4 indicate some problem. It could be attention issues only.
It might help to take a look at my site. Many of my posts describe characteristics of different disordes and explain how to recognize one from the other.
My site is Milestone Mom.http://www.milestonemom.com. I am a pediatric occupational therapist with over 16 years experience.
Dawn great that you have the school situation sorted out for your son - at least for now.
But when you feel swamped and ready to tear your hair again, do remember to contact those online support groups. I know from personal experience how helpful and comforting a support group can be: an island of sanity in a sea of crazy.

I received this today from my Conputer/Internet Guru - Kim Komando. I only download what she has tested and approved.
If your child is autistic, you might find this helpful.
A robot is helping autistic children understand emotions. Kaspar the robot looks like a boy. It can simulate playing and laughing. Researchers say the robot is incredibly effective in helping autistic children become more affectionate. There are iPad apps made to help with autism, too. Click here for the best ones. >>
Dawn, I really feel for you, mate. No wonder you feel like "snapping." I got hot under the collar just reading your post. I REALLY think you would find joining a support group for the parents of child diabetics very helpful. You would not feel so isolated and alone. Talking to people who have the same problems (and maybe some solutions as well) will embower you no end!!
Go online and search out groups near you - or even just online. Keep in touch and let me know what you find.

Thanks Margot. I do plan to ask for a referral to a neurologist also... even if I have to stand in that office and not leave till they give me one! For years these pediatricians have been telling me "its normal", and obviously its not!
Now, to boot, im also dealing with my son's school nurses. GRRR ready to SCREAM! My son has type 1 diabetes, has been diagnosed for 2 1/2 years, and they are trying to educate ME on what to feed my kid?! For freaking REAL?! He is the first child theyve had this young with this damn disease, this is the first year theyve physically had to count the carbs, dose the insulin, troubleshoot screwy numbers, the whole freaking nine yards (which HALF the time they are calling ME asking ME what to do), and they have the damn nerve to tell ME about what the hell the difference is between a complex carb and simple carb is??? Are they trying to be his damn nurse at home too?! OMG im SO freaking ready to SNAP!
Thats ok, I'll fix them up. They want me to put him on a damn whole grain diet... FINE. Let's see how well they can get him to eat nothing but whole grain tostito chips, whole grain crackers and cheese, and peanuts... over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over..... oh y eah, and over again! Hes 5! Come on people!(meaning nurses). The only damn thing I asked for was that if they give him a freaking apple as a snack after gym/recess... to give him something out of the snack bag that IVE PROVIDED as well, to help carry his bgs through for the next 2-3 hours till dinner... otherwise, his sugar crashes. They've SEEN this, and they have the audasity to question ME?! Hell, they arent even smart enough NOT to give him a freaking cupcake WITH ICING while his blood sugar is 300, and not give him something else to prevent a crash later. What happened? Yep, you got it! 3 hours later, they are freaking calling me because his blood sugar is 42! Oh, but they hold the damn licensure. I guess that means they are God and know every freaking thing on the PLANET about Type 1 Diabetes and how to manage and care for it, right?!
Sorry, needed to vent.
