Three Actions to Take if Your Child is Struggling at School

Are you concerned about how your child is doing at school? Wondering what else can be done to help them succeed?  Make sure your lines of communication are open with your child’s teacher. However, this, at times, may not be enough to get your child the support that he/she needs. 

Parenting Expo speaker Vita Nemirovsky, founder of Homeworks Educational Consulting, recommends:

  • Contacting the school to set up a meeting with all your child’s teachers.
  • Being specific:  If your child’s reading progress is a concern, let school personnel know.
  • Keeping track of outcomes after the meeting.

With over 15 years of educational experience in public and private school settings, Vita educates and empowers families to help their child succeed at home and at school.  She is certified in early childhood, elementary, and special education ages 3-21 years.  Vita is also certified in the Wilson Language System and is members of International Dyslexia Association and Decoding Dyslexia organization.
