my 7 year old daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD and mood disorders. She is in 2nd grade and bringing home D's and F's. I requested an IEP and the school denied it. The teacher said that she is just average and I need to deal with it. That she will never do better than that and she just rushes through her work, so that's why she gets the grades that she gets. She cries hysterically every night because she says she is stupid. I work with her for hours trying to get her to comprehend her work. Her psychiatrist is LIVID that they denied the IEP so we are in the appeal process right now. She just got the results back from the IQ test that her psychiatrist ordered and it showed below average. I dont want her to start her education career being behind but if she gets held back, it will devistate her...what else can i do?
