Help your children reach their full academic

and socio-emotional potential


Is it becoming a daily challenge for your child to get through a simple school assignment, and you’re not sure what you—or your child—is doing wrong?

You’re both trying hard, but the last report card showed otherwise. You feel like you should talk to someone at the school and have your child tested, but for what, and how?

The next thing you know, you’re in a conference facing the school psychologist, the resource teacher, and the classroom teacher.  They’re reviewing test results, and even though you’re nodding your head, their clinical terminology is going way over it.

Maybe you’re a teacher struggling to identify learning issues in your classroom. You might be striving to reach students with IEPs or accommodations, but you need some new strategies.

Whether you’re a parent who is trying to decipher diagnostic test results or an educator looking for support, The ABCs of Learning Issues is the practical guide that identifies behaviors and suggests strategies to use at home and in the classroom.
