Academic Issues

Academic issues can range from early reading delays, homework meltdowns, refusal to write, avoidance of math, cramming last minute instead of studying, to hating school. They can be signaled by low self-esteem, mood swings, low risk-taking, inattention and avoidance.

If any of the following statements sound familiar, we can help you find a solution:

  • “I got the answer, so why should I write down the steps?”
  • “If I study too far ahead, I forget everything.”
  • “I don’t want to read! I hate reading and you can’t make me!”
  • “I forget what my teacher says and she tells me I ask too many questions. She says I should pay attention!”
