Hi! I'm new on here and I'm looking for some advice. I have been going back and forth with my daughter's school teachers. My daughter's speech is delayed. She's been in speech since preschool. She's now in the first grade. In preschool and kindergarten I was approached by the school superintendent about having my daughter take the test for talented and gifted children. I didn't allow her take the test because I wanted her to stay with children in her age group and not miss out on being a kid. With that said, she's now in first grade and the school performed testing on her called the Conners 3 test. I also had to feel out paperwork. I waited for months to get the results back and then the school called me for this meeting. All of a sudden according to the school my daughter has ADHD. Her teacher, reading teacher, speech teacher and the school physiatrist stated that she was aggressive and her attention span is off. She doesn't act like that at home and when it's homework time usually has the problems or answers already done. The school told me that she needs medication. Now I feel like they are just picking on her. She gets in trouble with her teacher for petty things like her pencil rolling off her desk. What should I do?
