I have a nephew who is in third grade and does not know how to read.
His teacher is working with him but what can I also do to help him? I know the teacher is not the problem. He takes a long time in doing his work and to even read one simple sentence. Are there websites or workbooks that I can give him?
Anytime a child is not attaining academic goals then the parents or guardians are welcome to address these issues formally by asking for a meeting of the staff to see if there are psycho-educational issues that are impeding learning. Sometimes the teacher may make the referral, too.
Once strengths and weaknesses in a child's learning are pin pointed then program planning can be conducted that may be more helpful.
