    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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.
