Hi, I’m sorry that you are seeing the struggle. Have you met with a psychologist? A psychologist may be able to SEE the issues that you are observing. A psychologist can also “prescribe” (not medication but) agencies/resources to help with behavioral support, i.e., OT or behavioral support services. From what you described, please look into Executive Function Disorder. This effects the prefrontal lobe. It does effect memory, but not intelligence. Basic skills seem to be lacking. Hope this helps.
