What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk,

Please ask for a school team meeting to help develop a plan for your children in order that their educational development can be successful.  They may offer afterschool or mentoring programs as one way to "catch her up" with her learning.

Consider the many workbooks and apps that are now available for learning of (pre) reading skills.

Good luck!
