The Learning Solution. What To Do If Your Child Has Trouble with Schoolwork.
This book is designed to assist parents with a child who has a learning problem in school. It provides the questions a parent needs to ask himself or herself, the child, and the child's teachers about learning, and it suggests specific strategies that a parent can use to improve the child's learning. Research indicates that the interventions schools provide often fail because they do not provide sufficient individual assistance. While a professional tutor may be the ideal, schools and parents may lack the resources to provide tutoring services. A major goal of this book is to suggest viable alternatives for children who do not have access to a professional private tutor. Parents who receive the proper guidance and instruction can serve as effective tutors for their own children. Other goals of this book are to increase parental knowledge about the resources schools have to offer and to increase the effectiveness of parent and teacher interaction. Appendix A lists resources and organizations. Appendix B lists 35 additional readings and appendix C contains 18 references. (SLD)
