Solve Your Child's School-Related Problems.
Martin, Michael, Ed.; And Others
Even parents who are very involved in their children's day-to-day lives have difficulty resolving school problems, largely due to lack of information. This document outlines the workings of the public and private school systems and provides parents with methods for coping with common school-related problems that may affect their children. Topics of interest are arranged in alphabetical order and contain the following information: (1) summaries of the best studies, research, and conclusions reached by school psychologists on this issue; (2) a clear listing and explanation of red flags in the child's behavior that may indicate that professional help is needed; (3) solutions and approaches; and (4) details of what the school psychologist, and in some cases, other school personnel such as reading or speech-language pathologists will do for a child. Appendices in the document provide information on: (1) organizations and associations of help to parents; (2) tips for helping children through crises; and (3) samples of names and purposes of tests typically used by school psychologists. Also contains a detailed index. (SR)
