Early Warning Signs

School has been in session long enough this year for possible problems to appear. It is important to look at these areas: student getting along with teacher(s); student completing homework; student’s scores on tests and student’s attitude about going to school.

The best way to begin to handle issues in these areas is to meet with the classroom teacher(s). Sometimes just clarifying what the teacher expects of the student is enough to bring clarity to how the student should be working. In a meeting such as this, the student will appreciate getting the teacher’s attention and understanding more about how to work.

Don’t wait when things start to be issues. Time does not always resolve difficulties; it usually makes it worse.
