What should I help my child focus on so she won't get overly discouraged?

Focus on Strengths

Focus on your child's strengths. A non-structured environment is overwhelming to AD/HD children. Environments that call for independent, self-managed tasks
exploit the AD/HD individuals' natural weaknesses. The child is not lazy,
unreachable, or stubborn. The brain simply works differently. Play to the
strengths of this child.
