ADHD at School
Does any one else see that their teen does not want to accept assistance offered ?
My 9th grade daughter has been given multiple opportunities to help her organize her note book & locker at school, However in order to get this help she must ask for this during the times that the students are socializing (she needs this social interaction as well) before classes begin for the day. The excuses I get are : I forgot ,I have no time, I want to talk to my friends…
There is one teacher in particular that does occasional “book checks” to see if she has the text (that is kept in her locker). If she doesn’t have it with her in class during that period, she loses 5 precious points of her grade.
What can be a good solution to this as my daughter is about to fail.
