Hello, speech and language therapist here. It is worth considering whether language might be an issue at all, in some areas, around 50% of children start school with delayed communication skills, although given the right support in the early years many children can catch up. It may be that they could be frustrated, they might struggle with the length of the instruction and vocabulary or/and attention and listening needs.

If you have some children in mind that could fit this profile it could be worth trying our screening, this can be done for free with 3 children and you will get standardised scores and percentile ranks at the end: https://speechandlanguage.info/trial

Hope this helps,
