My sweet sweet 8 yr old is not doing well in school. she knows it too. it is just heart wrenching to see a child loose faith in themselves academically. her sister is very bright and her brother gets 100% on most state testing. she sees that too. im just so sad. Im in the process of hiring two tutors - a reading tutor and a speech teacher. I also have a call into get her privately tested for learning issues. My heart just aches.
sorry had to get it out anonymosuly. guess there is no real question.

My sister has a very similar situation. Finally she had her daughter tested for learning problems and now her daughter has an IEP. She has blossomed in the past year because she is getting the help she needs. Her reading has improved ten fold. My advice is for you to get her tested asap and then follow up that her school is working to help her. If she has an IEP then her school is required to help her more and in the capacity she needs.
Big hugs! Getting her tested and following through to make sure she is getting the education she needs and deserves is the best thing to do.
