Delaney & ADHD

I’ve suspected for quite some time (years) that my youngest had ADHD like me & her sister. I’ve been keeping in contact with her teacher this year and trying to decide how long we could manage things without an official evaluation. She’s only in first grade, so it’s been difficult for me to figure out […]

Brianna Day 2
