Why Bad Grades Happen to Good Kids, an award-winning book by Linda Silbert, PhD and Al Silbert, EdD, with an introduction by TV personality Al Roker, solves your challenge. Parents and teachers get easy-to-implement, practical strategies to help kids succeed in school.
This readable guide will help parents help their children succeed in all stages of their education. Parents discover what they need to know and what they need to do to address the root of their child's problems in school, instead of just treating the symptom: the bad grades.
The chapters are organized using S+T+R+O+N+G, an acronym that stands for Self-esteem + Trust + Responsibility + Options + Needs + Goals, the six interconnected areas central to the development of emotionally, socially, and intellectually strong kids.
This is a great book for educators as well as for parents. Includes valuable information for kids with learning disabilities such as ADHD, sensory processing disorder, language processing disorder, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.
Soft cover: 160 pages Dimensions: 8.4 x 5.5 x 0.5 inches
