you are in my prayers. Have your child tested. The areas she is having the most problems in, focus on those. Yes, an Aide would be of great assistance. Your child can and will learn, it may take her being taught the subject matter in a different way.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I am hoping I do not possibly insult you with my reply... but I am trying to help, I swear.



It seems as though perhaps English is not your first language? perhaps? I am sorry if I am wrong. BUT, I have worked with LOTS of kids our daughters' age (5 years) that have parents that claim English as a second language (either to Spanish or some Asiatic languages). Sometimes these kids have harder problems with learning--especially when English is scantily spoken at home. With help from aides at their school, though, they flourish--so if you can perhaps discuss this with the teachers at your daughter's school, she should be fine.



Changing schools wouldn't be too great of a decision unless you absolutely feel that after much discussion with your daughter's teachers and principals, etc. that they are NOT doing everything they possibly can to help aide your daughter's education.



Our kids' learning difficulties are never our fault and we just need to learn good ways to help them along... so don't blame yourself and try not to be depressed. *hugs* ALSO, some kids, no matter what, have difficulty when first starting school and they catch up in the years to come. Continue caring and being a BIG part of her education and things should be fine.



I hope this helps and things start progressing :) take care!

Hi Ros, my advice would be for you to do what you think is best for your little girl, if you feel that changing her school is in her best interests then go by that, but does your childs school not have a support teacher for the slower learners? My 5 year old girl has a support teacher at her school to help her with reading and literacy as she was more behind than her classmates and the change in her is unbelieveable. You should ask her school to see if she can get extra support. All kids learn at different rates so please try not to worry
