The school year is well under way but some students continue to struggle with reading. Even with the special help at home and at school, the hoped for gains remain out of reach. Parents devote extra time helping with homework and reading yet, out of frustration, might complain, “If only you would work harder!” Teachers use the best curricula available. But, your student falls even further behind, discouragement settles in and the student exhibits secondary behaviors — loss of attention, deteriorating behavior, plummeting self-esteem. Of course there are students who will persist as hard as they can but suffer for it with headaches, stomachaches, anxiety or fatigue.
