Genetics

Miss E is undertaking the latest, hottest approach to ADHD and problems with working memory and executive function. It's a computer 'game' called RoboMemo made in Sweden by Cogmed. Works with patterns of light, numbers and letters, lots of spacial memory as well. It gets progressively more difficult the better she does, eases up when she makes two mistakes in a row. Five weeks, five sessions per week. Lots of dollars.

There were forms to fill out for the 'before' analysis. Most interesting of these are the teacher responses that show Asperger's symptoms continue to show up, though mildly. And I identify with every one of them.
