Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

If this is the first time your daughter has been in formal education, it could be that she is trying to grasp all the newness in her life.  If she continues to have difficulties which are a concern to her teachers and yourself, then in the United States there is an option to have a formal meeting with possible psycho-educational assessment (including observations) completed. This is a process that is guided by laws and regulations.

My first step would be to have a teacher conference.
