My twelve year old daughter is in seventh grade and struggling to keep C's. She has learning disabilities and everyone says she doesn't have ADHD. I'm not sure what ADHD even entails. SHe tells me she has trouble keeping her mind on school when the teacher is talking, then needs to go for extra help to catch up on what is missed. I had this problem too. It's not fun. Does this sound like ADD? She isn't hyperactive or a behavior problem. I don't want to touch stimulants because my older daughter was addicted to them and she got most of her drugs from kids who were "diagnosed" with ADHD. I just don't like the addiction potential. What interventions do you feel are good for possible ADD? Does it sound like ADD? She's a very "spacy" kid, forgets her work at home (then calls me begging me to bring it) misplaces things, swears her cell phone is in her room but it's in the car, etc. She's not very organized. How can I help her?
