If your child is not doing well in school between kindergarten and third grade, you have a couple of options. Depending on where you live, the school will have a process of intervention where your child will be assessed by professionals, and given tests to determine what the problem may be. Getting this done is not always easy. Where I live in Florida, they offer the assessments every six weeks. That’s a long time to wait when your child is floundering, coming home dejected, earning poor grades and getting in trouble for acting up in class. Still, it is what it is, and once you can finally get an assessment, it may help determine what level of tutoring or testing, if any, your child needs.
