Patience and understanding is definitely key in dealing with this in my opinion.  Has your daughter been seeing someone to talk about this?  Also, as important, have you gone to see a therapist about this as well to learn about this condition?  Learning about how your daughter thinks and what she is going through will help you understand how to deal with it much better.  You have come to the right community and please feel free to share your thoughts, concerns, and questions.

Does she have a fravorite toy? send it to school with her, add a family photo. Such simple things could help. It will get better but having things to remind her of home, her comfort zone should help ease the transgression. Just a thought.
