My 10 year old daughter has absolutely no concentration skills, and the majority of the time cannot stay focused on the subject at hand. This has been ongoing since the late 1st grade/early 2nd grade - she is now in the 4th grade. Does anybody know of workshops/websites/therapies, etc., that I can look into to help her. I am frustrated and so is she, and it's not only affecting her schoolwork but I have seen a drop in her self-esteem. Any help would be greatly aqppreciated!

I have made some minor changes to her diet. But it looks like I need to be a bit stricter!

I've had to put my son's on a gluten-free diet. It did help, but you also may want to get her tested for ADD.

Have you ever researched whether perhaps her diet may contribute to this? What sort of foods is she eating on a daily basis?
