How to proceed really depends on WHY she won’t report these things to the teacher. Does she feel like she’s tattling? Does she think the other students will retaliate? Does she just want to be their friend? Is she worried she will be the one to get into trouble? Maybe the teacher doesn’t take her concerns seriously?

Kids with ADHD are usually behind in communication and self-awareness skills, which could both be at play here.
