Yes adapt and compensate and to learn skills to be able to do this throughout a lifetime is a primary goal.

The hardest thing is to get the schools to recognize that fuctional skills are as improtant or more so than acedemic skills.

Just wanted to thank you all for your support and encouragement. We got the results of the testing today and we have confirmation that there are LD issues. I have known since she was little that there was just something going on but no one would believe me.

Now we can figure out how to help her to compensate (she does a lot of that on her own already). He is recommending a 504 so I will have to go toe to toe with the school on that. Fortunately I have an ally in her teacher. More importunately I hope this will allow us to work with her to ease her anxiety that is causing her to have terrible stomach issues.

My heart breaks for the hurdles that this is going to put in front of her for the rest of her life, but I am so relieved we have been able to discover it now so we can help her become an olympic class hurdler.
