My daughter grades are real low at school, she has been on Ritalin, then Concerta and now Adderall 20mg/2x a day! The school is testing her as we speak on Special Education! I live in VA, I asked them for a 504 plan, but they are insisting Special Education. I don't know what to do right now, I also think the medicine has a lot to do with it, because she seems to me to be hyper since the doctor up her dosage last week. Her attention span in school is not good. My daughter was not always smart, but she was making better grades before and has really dropped down to an F student. She also tells me she is getting picked on at school, so I made an appt with a therapist to talk to her. Will anyone give me some suggestions on this? I'm really about to pull my hair out!!!
