Hey, @Dainelisleyvac thank you for sharing what is going on for you and your daughter. So many parents and carers here post about ADHD - if you look at some of the other threads, I'm sure you'll see that you are alone with the challenges you mentioned.
Finding what works with ADHD is a very individual thing - it's great to hear you're open to getting some professional support as they'll be able to help you find what works for your daughter. One potential avenue to explore is support groups, and there's a list of all the ADHD support groups around the country here.
It might be worth seeing a GP to see what support is available to you in the short term - although I did want to acknowledge how difficult it can be to get ADHD support. These articles on ADHD + parenting and school have some good insights that you might be interested in reading. I'm curious to know if the school have offered any support to help your daughter remember her belongings?
I did want to let you know that ReachOut's support is designed for parents and carers of teens. So I thought it might be helpful to check out Family Services Australia provides support and services for all areas of parenting.
Let me know what you think!
