Are you concerned about your student’s ability to make academic progress in one or more subject areas? Is your student present for daily classroom instruction but having difficulty completing in-class or homework assignments? Is he or she frustrated by an inability to grasp concepts that seem to come easily to their classmates?

Students who struggle often do not want to ask for help, and they may resist the offer of help from teachers and parents. They may seem to give up and appear uncaring about a specific subject or school in general. They may deflect attention from learning difficulties by exhibiting inappropriate behaviors. Sometimes a learning or attention problem is the root cause of these actions.

It is never too late to ask for help if you suspect that your student may have an obstacle impeding their pathway to educational success. Please email (dbroadbent@intechchs.org) or call me at the school (435-753-7377 extension 103) to set up an appointment to discuss your concerns.
