Things aren't so bad in school yet this year. But last year they were pretty bad. With the talking out of turn, not listening or paying attention. She plays stupid for attention so pretends she can't do the work when she really can. She was eating her lunch and then going through the hot lunch line and basically stealing food. They finally let me know and I had to call the lunch lady's and have her put on the NO FOOD EVER list.
She was stealing food from kids at school during snack and such. She'd then tell me some kid traded her apple for cheese popcorn. YEAH doubt a 5 year old would do that.

She was stealing food at home too. She'd get out in the middle of the night and take food to eat. We had to put a lock on the outside of her door to stop this for everyone's safety (she was climbing drawers and cabinets to get food and we have a marble table just 2 feet from where she was climbing, plus knives on the counter, etc).

It's been a rough road. So stressful and this has been going on since birth, it has just been getting worse and worse.

Oh and yes she was behind in reading last year. She just didn't grasp the whole concept. She wasn't reading at all when she entered kindergarten and she can read now at the beginning of 1st, pretty well too. So she did get it, just slower than most.
