My daughter is 8 years old and is having a hard time in grade 3. We had a parent-teacher interview and they want to put her on IEP. My daughter is struggling and having trouble understanding at a grade 3 level. They want to keep her in grade 3, but grade her at a grade 2 level.
I was asked by the teacher to have a child psychologist assess her and find out where and why she is not understanding. I have no problem doing whatever it takes to help my child.
Is there another way you can suggest that I can help her at home? Maybe through other teaching methods. I have a tutor that comes to our home 2 times a week for 1 hour each visit. I'm stuck and don't know what else to do. Please help!
