  • VELINDA:

    DO Y0U WORK WITH KIDS WITH ASD, HIGH FUNCTIONING, VERBAL AND ACADEMICALLY ON TRACK. PROBLEM IS ATTENTION AND RETENTION.

  • Hi Velinda, As a learning specialist for more than 30 years, I have helped many children and adults overcome learning and attention and memory difficulties. – Doc Meek

  • Elaine Castilho:

    What should we do when an ADHD child, with ODD and bipolar, on meds, with behavior therapy and IEP, just cannot behave properly at school or places where other children are around?

  • Hi Elaine, I need more information in order to be helpful to you. Are you the child’s Mom or the child’s teacher? How old is the child and in what grade at school? Is the school a good one? Is the school district in which the school is located a good one? – Doc Meek, South Jordan, Utah, USA, Tues, Sept 30, 2014,
