14 yr old Daughter struggling in English - what to do next?
My 14 year old daughter was diagnosed as receptive and expresive speach delayed at age 4. Speach therapy helped. But as school started she showed signs of having reading and later writing issues. We have done Sylvan (no progress), one on one tutoring(no progress), speed reading (that class did help).
We started out in the 3-6% range have moved up to the 25 to 35% in standardized testing. But seem stuck here.
The doctor who does the testing here in town wants to medicate. But she displays no signs of ADD or ADHD.
Now we enter freshman year of high school and we have a teacher/coach who isn't sure how to deal with this......nice guy, but just not sure how to handle this.
Our goal is to help her find ways to cope, but I don't know where to even start. . . .
