I have a mild LD child. She is in 3rd grade.. she is a very bright child but has always had trouble focusing and staying on task. She starts out each grade doing pretty well then once returning from Christmas break she seems to shut down, she comes up with all sorts of reasons why she can't do the work but when pressed she does very well. This behavior is having an effect on her final grades.. I'm in Florida so if she doesn't pass the dreaded FCAT she will be retained. What I'm looking for is what should I be expecting from her sp.ed teachers.. should they be working on academics only or should they also be working with her to help her recognize why she wonders off and what to do when she does..
