This entire year of school (since September) I have gone back and forth with writting a formal letter to request an MFE for my 2nd grader. After being diagnosed (for the 2nd time) with ADHD and then Dyslexia in June, I did meet with the school in September to ask for the MFE but was denied stating my daughter's scores on the state required tests were average and that her ADHD was not significantly interfering with her progress. We have tried Adderall and Focalin but difficult child lost so much weight that I took her off it about 2 weeks ago. Pediatrician said that since she has not had luck with either of these, I would need to take her to someone (like a phychiatrist) who could prescribe a 'cocktail' of drugs... to counteract the appetite. To add to this, her teacher seems to be very wishy-washy in regards to her progress with school and where she stands as far as moving to third grade. One week it's 'I could see her being held back' and the next week it's 'she will do great in third grade.' I have requested a conference with the teacher but our schedules conflict so much that we are not able to meet. Should I go ahead and request the MFE??
