Hi--My 8 yr old daughter has just started 2nd grade. As usual, she really struggles when it comes to following directions-(especially written directions.) She is easily distracted, but not hyper. If she doesn't understand directions, she has been known to "make up her own>" She is not a behavior problem and can be shy. Her grades last year were good with the exception of one math grade on her report card. She "zones out" alot and tends to stare at things of interest. She does well socially, but overall seems somewhat immature which is why I waited a year to send her to Kindergarten. She does well with spelling and phonix. Math is more of a problem area for her. She is an above average reader. I still, however, feel there must be a problem somewhere in her little head. She doesn't fit any profile I look at! She is stubborn, but aims to please. I've considered the possibility of CAPD or ADD. She can be very "spacey" at times.
