Teresa did well in preschool, but it started getting harder for her once she got into kindergarten and first grade.
She was falling behind her classmates and she started saying she hated school. Teresa told her mother, “When I read it feels like there are two guns shooting me in the eyes, and then somebody sprinkles fairy dust all over me and all I want to do is go to sleep.
