I wonder if Malena has ADHD or something similar. One of my coworkers is learning disabled. Every day we worked together I had to show him how to do everything. He responded as though he'd never been taught some of the stuff before. Other things he knew I had already shown him but he drew a complete blank when he had to do it on his own. After I lost patience with him one time (because he hadn't told me his issue), he admitted he was learning disabled and the only way he could learn was to have someone show him step by step, multiple times, until he could finally figure out a way to get it to stick. It took him about 3 months to get even the most basic tasks down. So, possible with Malena?
