This is probably the only place that I can post this brag and have someone understand how important is is to DD.

DD9, with mild dyslexia, dysgraphia and ADHD, got an "A" in writing on her final report card. She worked her friggin' patootie off for it and I am so proud that I could bust. Previous to this year, she has only ever managed a "C". But, with fantastic teachers and appropriate accomodations she was able to show what she can do. The smile on her face was worth every $ we have spent on diagnoses and anxiety-therapy over the past three years. Not only is she writing to her potential... but the phrase 'gifted writer' was used!!
