First off I just found this forum and have seen some pretty good stuff here figured I would post and see what kind of suggestions I get. Background, my daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD and am in the process of getting her tested to see where she is on the spectrum. She has a above average IQ (114 overall) but is below on the reading and comprehention aspects of it. She is now medicated and it has really helped with her focus and impulsiveness. Although the physical behaviors she was exhibiting before medication are now taking a different path and becoming more "covert" and sneaky. She is defiant at home with me but behaves acceptable to my parents. I am a single father and have been for the past 7 years. She is an only child and can tend to be posessive of me. I am currently dating somebody that has two kids of her own that have their own issues but none that come out socially or affect their school. My daughter is continually displaying social behaviors that are unacceptable to myself and my girlfriend. She plays in a mean controlling way and is also very bossy. I am finishing up with my second college degree where I went back to school with the intention of getting a better career so that I could support my daughter better and have more time to spend with her. I am considering a boarding school for her or a specialty school but am presently considered "low income". I am also seeking an appointment with a psychiatrist to see if there is anything they can do. My daughter has fallen behind in school prior to her being medicated and is in third grade on a second grade reading level. She is doing better socially in school this year as she transferred from a public school into a state supported charter school. She still has a long way to go before she can be considered "normal" I just don't know where to really start with her. Any and all suggestions welcome. If you need more clarification or more details on behaviors I'm an open book if it means I can help my daughter succeed.
