Hello, I am new here. My daughter who is 5 was newly diagnosed with ADHD in April. (I also have adult ADHD.) My husband and son have "outgrown" ADHD. I am also a caregiver to an elderly grandparent who lives with us. She has stage 4 dementia.
Is there has been talked about having my daughter repeat kindergarten. They have asked us what we want to do. I don't know what to do. I am struggling to know what is best. When we first had her evaluated the teacher didn't know her yet. We (parents and teachers) had noticed she is struggling with being consent in her skills. One day she knows it and nails it all, the next time she doesn't know and gives a blank stare. She struggles with two steps of directions or just listening in general. She can't sit still for to long.
We have started doing behavioral changing therapy. It's only been a few weeks. It's going slow, we are sticking with it. I have been researching and researching to see what I can find on what to do about my daughter bring held back or if we should let her go on to 1st grade. Any advice is welcome or things I should be asking the school.
