My sweet and adorable daughter is floundering in her school. Her class size is way too big. Her teachers can't give her enough attention. She is basically skating through the year. I barely know what is going on despite asking several times for notifications and emails about how she is doing, how I can support her, upcoming projects or things I need to provide/do etc. There are too many kids.

She is in 2nd/3rd grade. Being a little vague here to protect confidentiality as I ask this in real life all the time.

She has ADHD, is medicated and under supervision of a child psychiatrist for med adjustments. She is distracted easily and has social skills issues. She has an OT too. Trying every route.
She is also super bright. Reads above grade level. Teachers ask her questions and she knows the answers... she just has trouble writing stuff down. She is kind and helpful. A great girl but sometimes gets overstimulated easily.

I need a new school for her. Open to anywhere in the USA but prefer not NY. We are out of towners at heart. It could be a special ed program or just a warm small school that is open to helping her be her best.

Please help this mom! We want to help her!!

Isn't Ichud for kids with academic or learning problems? My daughter gets distracted and has the social issues with ADHD but is above grade level in some ways.

My kid is identical. I convinced the school to back off and she’s thriving. So she doesn’t always fill out all her sheets or bring her homework home. She’s still top of the class. Such a child usually belongs in a regular classroom with the school just looking away at the sloppy class work.
