7 yr old, 2nd grader not progressing in several areas.
In grade K, she crawled under tables, talked during class and was always sent to the office. The teachers remedy was to put her at a desk in front by the teacher and let her color in her little pony coloring book! She wasn't learning ANYTHING this way, so we pulled her out and began homeschooling & accomplished a lot from Jan to May.
Last year, grade 1 we had problems with following directions, direct defiance (with the excuse I didn't hear you, the cat told her to do it) [yes hearing has been checked]. She made reading progress & some basic math, but we school all yr long.
This year: can't tell time, understand money denomination, the beginning of the year she couldn't remember what the "+" and "-" signs meant in math! She forgets whats she's learned from one day to the next, can not follow more than 1 set of instructions, often will not flush OR wipe! I did some research and found an article on Oppositional defiant disorder & she has ALL of the symptoms listed. Her dr says shes fine-needs to learn its not all about h
