Larissa is a third-grade female student with a specific learning disability in written expression and an executive functioning disorder. She is originally from El Salvador and moved to the U.S. with her mother, father, older sister, and newborn brother when she was 14 months old. In first grade, she was assessed for special education services. She was found eligible in written expression and executive functioning due to a diagnosis of dyslexia and ADHD by an outside psychologist referred by her primary care physician. Larissa’s verbal expression is close to grade level. Still, when asked to express her thoughts on paper, she often uses lower-level vocabulary and fragmented sentences, and her writing lacks organization. This could be due to her inability to focus on longer tasks and her difficulty with spelling, written expression, and multiple languages spoken in the home. Larissa also struggles with starting tasks independently, staying on task, and with task completion. In addition, she often cannot find her materials when needed, such as pencils, paper, assignments, books, etc.
Recently, her mother and father separated. Her mother has since moved the children out of their home and with family friends. The family friends already have three children and two adults living there, so the three-bedroom, one-bath house is very crowded. Their new home is within walking distance of Rosewood Elementary, where Larissa has recently transferred.
Larissa’s mother, Rita, has a job where she works long hours and is currently struggling to establish her line of credit. At home, Larissa’s family speaks both English and Spanish. Rita considers English her primary language; however, Spanish is her first language, and she sometimes has difficulty understanding written English, despite speaking it well.
At a recent parent-teacher conference with Larissa’s teacher, Mr. Fleming, Rita shared that she obtained an order of protection against her husband after they separated. Because the order of protection extends to the children, she provided Mr. Fleming with legal documentation of the order. The day after the conference, Mr. Fleming notified the office and gave them the documentation if Larissa’s father should come to the school.
