|have a relative that is bi-polar and is conivinced that her child is bi-polar.|

|She is 9 by the way.|
Now we are having trouble with her teacher in a private school who does not want to modifiy her work. The child's issue is time - it takes her twice as long to do anything. But when she does finish she gets everything correct. Fighting with an ignorant teacher who sees her slowness as a "motivational" issue is tiring!
