As a psychologist, I CAN help with this question. There are many reasons that contribute to kids having trouble in school and these need to be explored carefully. Schools are often limited by rules they have to follow, class time, and sometimes personnel limitations to do this well. One key question is whether a child has ADHD or experiences problems with learning differences and psychologists are well equipped to assess for these conditions… and then make referrals to others who specialize in helping the person work within their abilities.
