3-yr old can id common objects, most colors but can not id letters, shapes, and numbers. what are possible reasons for this inability?

Too young: Give the kid some time. Even accuracy with colors is not consistent at that age. You don't expect a newborn to run immediately & you shouldn't expect advanced activities from a 3 yo just because they stand upright.
