I would definitely work with the school on figuring out what to do next. Otherwise, you will just feel like you are spinning your wheels and not making progress. If they have a reading specialist, maybe that one-on-one attention would help get her over the hump. And help to give you strategies to help. Some of the tricks and tips that we learned over the years have been invaluable, and we still use them to this day. As parents, I feel like sometimes we are just not equipped to deal with the intricacies of academic struggles. We can only do so much.
Well, I’ve decided to enroll Malia at Sylvan learning center, at least for a month, to get her more help with reading.
She’s motivated to learn but is still running into road blocks. I really want to get her past that while she’s engaged and willing. Hopefully once it all clicks it’ll be easier for her.
I figured with the holiday breaks, December would help get her caught up while school is out. Fingers crossed!
Malia had her first assessment at Sylvan. Her reading has improved a lot, very noticeable. Her confidence is growing. I still need to push her to try out longer, multi-syllable words but I’m pleased with her progress. I’ll probably keep her another month or see how she does during her next assessment at school. I know my bank account will be happy to be done with this added expense. Oy!
So glad you guys are trying it out. Great that she can get that one-on-one attention!
