Does her instructor know about it yet?  Perhaps they can talk to her about the next step on her lessons.   She will be a strong young woman once she overcomes these challenges.  Why is she getting picked on?

I would tell her to start writing questions for her doctor in a notebook. That way if she has any fears, the doctor can go over them with her and explain things.

Why does she need leg braces (if you don't mind me asking)

This is a good idea. I would also research famous people/athletes who have had to overcome obstacles like hers so she can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

When we were considering meds for DS's ADHD diagnosis he was very upset. I Googled excerpts from Michael Phelps'autobiography where he described his ADHD and experience with Ritalin. We didn't put DS on the meds but he felt a lot better after reading Micheal Phelps' story. It might help DD.
