  2. Does your child forget math facts?
  3. Does your child get frustrated and spend an unreasonable amount of time on homework?
  4. Is your child unaware of time?
  5. Does your child have difficulty organizing personal space and time?
  6. Does your child have difficulty focusing?
  7. Does your child have difficulty following three-step directions?
  8. Does your child have difficulty writing legibly?
