Thank you for your response! So nice to hear I’m not alone! I’ve been seriously looking into medication. I feel like if she’s struggling to pick up the basics, how am I (or the school) going to get things through to her? She gives up before she even tries and nine times out of ten she can do the work or reading I’ve asked her to do (with reluctance of course). She’s doesn’t know or understand her potential and that hurts. Thank you again for your responsešŸ˜Š
