How Can I Find Out Why My Child Struggles in School?
To find out why your child is having problems at school:
Talk to your child. Ask questions about the schoolwork, other kids, and teachers.
Talk to your child’s teacher about how your child is doing. Teachers have a lot of information about how a child learns, behaves, and interacts with others.
Then, schedule a visit with your child’s health care provider. They can check your child for a physical problem, like a vision problem that can be fixed with glasses. They also can help you decide if your child should see another health care provider (such as a psychologist) or needs testing (for example, for ADHD or a learning problem).
