What Does a “Struggling Student” Look Like?

The term struggling student seems to come up often in conversations in the teacher’s lounge, the guidance counselor’s office, and in conversations with parents. But what does it mean, how can one get help for their child, and what does this help look like?

A struggling child may have:
  • Difficulties in reading skills (no matter how smart they are!)       
  • Trouble understanding concepts in math (no matter how smart they are!)
  • Great difficulties with organizational skills (no matter how smart they are!)  

Once the difficulty is identified, a plan of action needs to be created and implemented by both the school and family. It is important to check in with school on a consistent basis to see if the plan continues to be effective or if changes need to be made.

An effective plan of action:
  • Takes into account the needs of the child and family       
  • Sets measurable goals       
  • Includes feedback and review
