My daughter is in year 2, but the youngest in her class (born in August). She is middle of the road (to lower end in math, progressing well in reading, struggling with writing but all within the year 2 levels) academically, coping socially, fine phsyically, but I can see she is definitely the youngest and in the class. At the end of the school day she is exhausted and barely makes it through a week. Forget homework. She is having trouble focusing in class, she daydreams, can't stay on task. When you work with her individually she is fine, but give her directions from across the room and it won't register. She is like this at home too. The other morning she sat in the middle of the kitchen and cried "I just can't cope!" We've just had a blood workup done to see if there are any deficiencies like anemia that can be easily remedied. She's being evaluated for LD, but no one really thinks that is the problem. The going opinion is that it has to do with her age, but no one in the school system wants to keep her back (except me, but I worry about the effects of that either way). In her school, going from year 2 to year 3 is a very big deal, she will be with all of the older kids, expectations are much higher, she's no longer pre-prep, but prep and swimming with the big fish. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thank you!
