Suddenly, She’s Telling

For years, Ricki’s answers to “What happened in school today has been “I doknow...” (don’t know). But lately that has changed. The other day I sat down with her, with the class schedule in hand, asking her what went on today in “X” class. And she told me.... subject after subject. So the nexst day I tried again, and AGAIN she told me.
In addition, she has taken over responsibility to prepare her school bag each afternoon with the correct notebooks for the marrow.
The responsibility has been placed on her, and she picked it up, completely. PROGRESS!

Wow, how did you get her to get her school bag ready???

That's a major challenge for any ADD kid!!

We are still working on our ADD kid having all the right notebooks and everything!

(looking for tips here)

I didn't do it. She just suddenlyaccepted that it was her responsibility.

Wow! Again wow.

I think of how you were apprehensive about this new program (aren't we all, usually?), and look what they helped do! Plus, of course, Ricki, who appears to be awesome.
