how to advocate for your daughter. It sounds as though she has done

they provide. Make sure that you have current and comprehensive
educational assessments for your daughter.

ADHD can be very successful with the right attitude and positive
If this process sounds too daunting for you, find an educational
consultant with experience in placing LD students. You could also
