Has your daughter been tested through the local school system?

Does she have a 504 or an IEP plan?

Is she on any medications?

Sorry for the questions, but a little more information would be helpful.

Thank you!

Yes, what types of therapies have you instituted for her? What things are they doing in school to help her with her various challenges?

Some kids do well with movement and to stay sitting still, having movement activities throughout the school day can be very benificial.

But more info would be very helpful here.
