You can have another dr test her, if your dr isn't willing to. As for how to work with her, my suggestions are: first, look at her diet. Cut out any processed foods (storebought cookies/cakes, boxed meals, cold cuts, frozen meals, etc.) and try to do from scratch as much as possible. For my sons(they both have adhd), the stuff they use to process and preserve foods makes them both 10 times worse. In addition, make a chart for her, with a list of everything you expect her to do, but keep it as simple as possible. For my kids, it's things like having good behavior at school, doing homework w/o complaining or taking forever, cleaning up toys/clothes/etc, taking a bath, stuff like that. For each thing she does, she gets a sticker. Count up how many stickers she can get total, and then figure out how many you want her to get to get a reward. con't....
