I'm looking for help. I have tried getting help from the school for my daughter. I have had psych evaluations done both at home and at the hospital. No helpful information. All evaluations point to no learn disabilities. The evaluation state she is a low avg. child. When you talk to her, however you won't feel like you are talking to a low avg child. She really struggles in school. So much of school deals with memorization, spelling tests, math facts, phonic sounds etc. She struggles in all areas of school. We have been practicing addition, subtraction, and multiplication math fact for years and she still hasn't mastered any of them. Her coping skill is to count on her fingers or in her head, but the further along in school she gets the harder it is becoming for her.
Symptoms: 1. Has short term memory issues 2. Trouble communicating her thoughts, if she doesn't understand something she can't tell you much more than that. 3. If she gets disciplined for something there is no trigger for her the next time she is about to do the same behavior. 4. She has been diagnosed with ADD.

Any suggestions on paths I can explore to get her help?
