"its stoping her from pushing herself at alot of things i know she could do" rather disturbs me... while I see that you want to help her, if she has had this condition a long time, she has probably acclimated to it very well. She may be very limited by her condition and does what she can even though she may look very normal and healthy. Hidden disabilities do happen.
