Smile Hello from Charleston!

Hello all,

My name is Jessica and I live in Charleston, SC. I have an 11-year old daughter who was diagnosed with a math learning disability and ADHD two years ago. Recently I had testing done and was also diagnosed with ADHD and a math learning disability (which explained so much about my difficulties in school). It's been a long road with my daughter and I'm here hoping to get some support and to learn more about how I can help her!

Looking forward to reading and learning!

-Jessica

Re: Hello from Charleston!

Just don't be like my Mom.

I remember, kitchen table, Mom trying to teach me division.

She was getting angry because I wasn't able to focus on the math equation, then she started screaming at me, and the more angry she got, the less I was able to focus and learn how to do it

All WRONG WRONG WRONG!

All that did was destroy me, her getting angry, caused me to withdraw further into my own little ADD world.
Angry people can't teach anything, and only makes the ADD child withdraw even further.

Sometimes I wonder if my ADD was an escape mechanism, my Mom was scary at times.
