I will ask my daughter What is the study of living things? She knows the answer to this question, but she will come up with 1000 different answers. I end up punishing her before she'll tell me the answer. I don't understand why she has such a hard time remembering this stuff. Once she does tell me the answer I will ask her for example what's the study of plants. She'll say botany. Then I will go back to what is the study of living things? She's not able to tell me the answer even though she told me not 2 minutes before. Anyone have any advice on how to deal with this?
She could have a short term memory loss or learning disability. I might suggest you talk to someone at the school see if she does it there to. Talk to teacher or speech teacher. the speech teacher is usually the one that has to do testing for all short term and learning disabilities. or anyway that is how we learned our daughter had auditory processing disorder.
