    Hi there 

    I would suggest you contact your gp as they will refer her to the right specialist 

    It isnt up to school really they are not medical professionals

    As janer says your GP is the place to start, it's often the case with kids that they can be perfectly well behaved at school but less so at home, our son could be a right sod but all his teachers wanted to adopt him, to which my reaction would be where do I sign?

    However back to the OP in what way do you think she is disabled?

    Hello @Emma1968 Have the replies you received helped? 

    If you could give us a little more detail about why you are concerned about your daughter that would help us better advise you but I'd agree that speaking with your GP is the best first port of call.  

    I hope you and your family are keeping well.  Please keep us updated with how you get on.
