Reply To: Teaching How to Remember?


About a year and a half ago I obtained custody of my 12 year old niece. She was about 3 years behind in school and had never been tested but was given a generic learning disability. We had her tested by the recommendation of her teacher and they said she had ADD. This post rang so true to me. Even though she is now on medication I am not seeing much difference. I do not know what other issues there may be but after reading about the EFD it seems spot on. Should I ask her doctor about this? Would the doctor be able to differentiate the two or do I need to find a specialist? It is sooooo frustrating trying to get simple things done consistently but I am trying to learn other methods to help her.
