Hello! My little one was diagnosed at 4 and now in 1st grade struggling with Math and Reading. I’ve been able to improve Reading by constantly reading books and reading books online and apps. Now Math….we’re struggling in a major way do to retention of information and I’m at a loss! We tried Adderall twice but it wasn’t successful so now we’re trying Vyvanse 30mg and the jury is still out. I would advise to let your IEP team and teacher know, which is what I did immediately this year as we’re virtual learning too but you’re not alone! struggles. My little one is also very shy in school and won’t ask questions, very immature and still stuck in a younger mindset along with major behavioral issues. Matter of fact I was telling that to the pediatrician, the number age is 6, but the mind is 4. I wish I had answers too, but I don’t know either.
