Thanks! Her school doesn't offer her anything different than any other children. She is expected to sit at her desk and work, gets a warning when she is reminded to do her work, as she will often stare into space and not do anything. After three warnings she goes to the office and is instructed to write a letter to us about why she was in trouble - but she always thinks she hasn't done anything wrong, no idea why she is there at all - it is clear to me that what they are doing is not working. She finds the other kids in the class very distracting - it only takes one person to say hello or something to her and she goes off track very quickly, gets angry and starts making a fuss about people distracting her. She is very clever and capable of doing her work, but she wont do it unless she is given an incentive to do so most of the time, unless it is something she actually enjoys doing. I think it would be great if they could understand her needs and maybe change things a little bit to suit her, but they obviously think that is unrealistic of me to expect. Thanks again!
