A Label for My Daughter We Can All Love



  1. Hi Dorothy, I am a mom of a 6 yo girl, she is gorgeous and smart and creative. She has been diagnosed with ADD. As you may imagine, I am struggling to help her be happy and feel accepted in her daily life. She is starting to show signs of axiety at school. I was wondering which is the school your daughter went were she thrived.

    I feel we need to find a school with small clases where teachers are more aware of the different needs of the students.

    1. Hi Bettsy,

      Thank you for reaching out, and I am so sorry your daughter is struggling! We didn’t switch schools until my daughter was in middle school. She went to Sterne Middle School in San Francisco. I am so glad we did it! She just started going to o our public high school this year and is doing well with support from her IEP, although she does still struggle with anxiety and attention issues. But I believe sending her to a small middle school for kids with learning difference helped her get to a place where she can now function in a regular high school (with some support). Are you in the Bay Area? I will try to provide you of the names of a couple of other schools for younger children, but I need to check on them with some other people.
