Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

The "rule of thumb" is that a child can say the abc's and count to ten without any issues by kindergarten (Depending on the age of the child it may be the beginning or the end of the school year).  Some children attain this skill earlier, while others may need a bit of extra help.

The more you stimulate your child the more he/she will learn and this can be as early as 4 years.  Logo reading happens first, and then his name.  The more you expose your child to reading activities the faster he/she will learn them.  And yes, then you have those children who need more time to grasp concepts.

Well, I learned my abc's and how to count to ten when I was in preschool; so the age should be around four or five.

My child is 2.5years old he knows his full alphabet and can count to 20. He can point to the letters when called out (when he is interested in doing so). I believe the child can do anything the child is taught at a young age routinely. I do believe no child is the same but every child has the ability.
