I have a student in my class with Doose syndrome. It's a severe form of epilepsy. She's a Kindergartener and her mom swears she knows all her letters and can read, but the most I can get out of her is 18 letters. I've looked online for epilepsy teaching tips but can't find anything. Is it possible she knows all this and just won't show me? How can I motivate her to work and show me? She's also very stubborn and often seems to be somewhere else, her mom keeps saying it's an act. I don't know who to believe or what to do. Help!?
