Hi, how did your DD go? Did she have the surgery? My DD (7 1/2 years) has just been diagnosed with this. She has a tear in her meniscus but it isn't giving her a lot of pain at the moment so it's been left up to us to decide whether she has the surgery or not.
I remember when I was around 12 having problems with my knee, the doc saying something about the meniscus (I'd have to ask mum!).I did lots of skiing, high jump and grew very fast around this time...but it must have healed ok by itself because it's not a problem now. Not sure but I'd be asking if it can heal naturally over time...

Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
