My daughter is in first grade. We first noticed problems in kindergarten and just had a very bad experience with her kindergarten teachers. After consulting everyone involved (preschool teachers, grandparents, pediatrician, principal, etc.) we decided to take her back to the pediatrician this year and try medication. So..it's only been a few weeks or so and we (my husband and I) see improvement in her focus. She's in Reading Recovery and has improved dramatically since the beginning of this school year.
Her primary teacher, who I don't feel is being intentionally mean or anything, is saying things like, "I just don't think Faith has any common sense", "She doesn't seem to understand what is going on" and "Maybe she has short-term memory problems"
Has anyone had this kind of feedback about their child? Is it related to ADHD? Could it be something else or the teacher?
