I know my child needs help, but how do
I figure out what the real problem is and what to do?
A discussion with the teacher and the school counselor is a good place to start. What is the teacher's viewpoint of your child's situation? Ask what you can do to help. The best chance for a child to learn occurs when parents and educators work as a team.. Often problems are not serious and require only awareness and teamwork.
