  • Could be a number of things happening with your daughter. I would advise you to make an appointment with the doc for a checkup. I would also have a chat perhaps with the schools guidance counselor, her teacher(s) as well to see what (if anything) is happening in class.

  • That would be up to a developmental pediatrician and/or psychologist to diagnose.

    But as mentioned above, talk to the teachers. It has to be consistent behavior all across the board.
