I am going to explain this as I understand it. My cousin's daughter is 9. She is mentally disabled as a result of a chromosome deletion birth defect. She has been diagnosed, and at this point seems to be a unique case as they cannot figure out how to treat her. The biggest issue right now is discipline. She can't get any help as the medicaid has not gone through, because her deletion is not recognized and they have to get that pushed through. The little girl doesn't seem to care about losing privileges, toys, or anything else. She refuses to do the work, in school or at home. The teachers call her mother, who is at a loss. She has taken her daughter to every hospital and doctor and no one seems to be able to give her an answer. She has no support from her husband, who has Aspergers and will not accept treatment for it. Someone give me some ideas for her! Please! She has tried positive reinforcement, it seems she has tried everything in the book. She cannot drive due to partial blindness. She is located in SE Pennsylvania, if anyone can relate! Thanks in advance and I am sorry for the mess of a paragraph, but I am on the phone with her and she's such a mess she can't even cry anymore.Answer Question
