Carrie12345 Posted November 24, 2011 Share Posted November 24, 2011 If anyone has recs for good evaluators in the NEPA area, please do share! We have recognized symptoms of adhd, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and maybe dyscalcula in 8yo dd for quite a while. With adaptations and hard work, she's made progress in most areas (except attention), but I'm at the bottom of my bag of tricks and ready for professional help. Having been through evals with my AS son, I know I want to sort my ideas out before meeting with a doctor and stumbling over Ummms and Uhhhs, lol. Maybe you can help me with one aspectbthat's been baffling us. We're using MCT and AAS, which have been great changes for dd. BUT... one minute she knows all the answers. The next, she knows none. A while later, she knows them again. If she's asked to slow down/stop/think/focus, she gets a blank look on her face, and not the kind where you can see the wheels turning, iykwim. Just. Blank. Another thing - We had this convo. today. Pardon lack of punctuation -iPad typing. What part of speech is 'and'? A pronoun? What does a pronoun do? Replaces a noun. Does 'and' replace a noun? No. So can it be a pronoun? No. What does 'and' do? Joins the two words. What part of speech joins two words? A pronoun? Stuff like this is every day. Yet she can recite the parts of speech and what they do. Part of me thinks that's adhd-ish, and she's throwing whatever she can at the wall to see what sticks instead of having the focus to think it out. I'd love to get some thoughts though!
