Hello any advise please my dd really struggles at school, always been told she is disruptive, wants to have it all her way has poor concentration etc but I thought she had dyslexia as I do that's why I thought she was struggling until her teacher said in heated discussion she thinks she has add I didn't know what that is... But looking into it makes sense... She has been referred via my gp as I haven't been happy with the school for many reasons. So I looked into changing her school amongst other reasons, I didn't feel they were giving her the support she needs. I found a school I really like viewed had long chat with head. And made her aware of dd not concentrating and looking out of class window( as her teacher says) and she advised me although she doesn't have a magic wand they would look into making sure that no child would be looking out the window during lessons, etc. but couldn't comment on how the school was dealing with it now. I applied for rule 2 in year admissions but I did not give enough evidence. Am thinking of going to gp to ask advise as she is aware of that has happened to dd. would this be beneficial has any one else been through this proscees?

Going via your GP is much quicker than through school and you will also be informed of any information every step of the way.

Going via your GP is much quicker than through the school and you will be part of the process every step of the way. My ds has ADHD/dyslexia and doesn't just stare out the window .. he's up and about in class, fiddling with everything and talking the hind legs off a donkey grin She may not have ADD ... if she is dyslexic, it may be a case that they are not engaging her is a way that she is able to learn. The classroom can be a very tricky place for kids like ours, it's just not designed to teach them sad

Hello thank you for your replies have gone to gp she is being referred. She doesn't have ADHD. ADD innatentive or something it's not she just looks out of the window many other things. I just haven't been happy with the school as they just let her carry on with it and she is so far behind. That's why I was looking into getting her into new school under rule2. Thanks for your advise..
