Re: mental retardation
I think you should go for a 2nd opinion if you feel their diagnosis is incorrect.
Maybe she just has a learning disability. In any event, it sounds like she will need special classes because even you have said that she is a little behind and needs some speech.
There is obviously something wrong, but what? Is the doctor correct or is there really another diagnosis to be found?
Who knows, maybe the doctor that diagnosed her was wrong maybe not. Did they take a brain scan of her, I doubt very much. Even with a learning disability, you daughter can be highly intelligent.
2nd opinion would be the best I think in your case. You need to be sure of what are her problems and how to treat accordingly.
