Pandora Media Inc. P, +0.95% reported better-than-expected financial performance in the fourth quarter Thursday, but shares slipped on a disappointing forecast. The internet-radio company revealed a net loss of $19.4 million, or 38 cents a share, on revenue of $392.6 million. After adjustments for stock-based compensation and other effects, the company claimed a loss of 13 cents a share. Analysts on average expected Pandora to report an adjusted loss of 21 cents a share on sales of $374 million, according to FactSet. Last month, Pandora revealed that it would lay off employees despite raking in higher revenue that it originally expected for the quarter. Pandora's forecast for the first quarter was well below analyst estimates, however. Pandora predicted revenue of $10 million to $320 million, while analysts on average were expecting revenue of $342 million, according to FactSet. Pandora predicted full-year 2017 revenue of $1.55 billion to $1.7 billion, while analysts expected $1.66 billion. Pandora shares dove more than 5% in after-hours trading after the results were released, but losses calmed down and settled closer to 2% later in the afternoon.

The symptoms

By 3 years old

Symptoms are evident from an early age. Babies are usually irritable from birth and may exhibit significant feeding problems.

They are slow to achieve expected developmental milestones. For example, by the age of eight months they still may not sit independently.

Many children with dyspraxia fail to go through the crawling stages, preferring to ‘bottom shuffle’ and then walk. They usually avoid tasks which require good manual dexterity.

Pre-school children – 3 to 5 year olds

If dyspraxia is not identified, problems can persist and affect the childís life at school. Increasing frustration and lowering of self-esteem can result.

Children with dyspraxia may demonstrate some of these types of behaviour:

  • Very high levels of motor activity, including feet swinging and tapping when seated, hand-clapping or twisting. Unable to stay still
  • High levels of excitability, with a loud/shrill voice
  • May be easily distressed and prone to temper tantrums
  • May constantly bump into objects and fall over
  • Hands flap when running
  • Difficulty with pedalling a tricycle or similar toy
  • Lack of any sense of danger (jumping from heights etc)
  • Continued messy eating. May prefer to eat with their fingers, frequently spill drinks
  • Avoidance of constructional toys, such as jigsaws or building blocks
  • Poor fine motor skills. Difficulty in holding a pencil or using scissors. Drawings may appear immature
  • Lack of imaginative play. May show little interest in ëdressing upí or in playing appropriately in a home corner or wendy house
  • Limited creative play
  • Isolation within the peer group. Rejected by peers, children may prefer adult company
  • Laterality (left- or right-handedness) still not established
  • Persistent language difficulties
  • Sensitive to sensory stimulation, including high levels of noise, tactile defensiveness, wearing new clothes
  • Limited response to verbal instruction. May be slow to respond and have problems with comprehension
  • Limited concentration. Tasks are often left unfinished

  • Difficulties in adapting to a structured school routine
  • Difficulties in Physical Education lessons
  • Slow at dressing. Unable to tie shoe laces
  • Barely legible handwriting
  • Immature drawing and copying skills
  • Limited concentration and poor listening skills
  • Literal use of language
  • Inability to remember more than two or three instructions at once
  • Slow completion of class work
  • Continued high levels of motor activity
