ADHD at School
She knows ALL of the info for the test - Then BOMBS the test
My daughter is in 5th grade and has inattentive ADHD. This year in school had been the most challenging thus far. She is receiving therapy for graphomotor deficit, which makes it very hard for her to write just about any kind of short answer, let alone any type of short story. Her bigger problem this year is test taking. I can drill her the night before the test and she knows 100% of the subject matter. I even try to mimic the test. I have gone to the extreme of making a mock test for her and having her take it. She passes with flying colors every time. When she takes the real test at school the next day, she gets a “D” or worse! She receives special considerations at school, she takes the test privately, has extra time, the teachers prompt her to double check… Even after ALL of this has occurred, the scores are still failing! Anyone have any ideas???????
