My child is in high school and recently began struggling in school. He/She never had difficulties before. Why now?
As a child enters middle and high school, academic expectations increase significantly. Students have more responsibilities, and teachers expect them to complete their work in a timely fashion without much assistance. Additionally students are expected to write longer, in-depth reports, solve increasingly complex problems, and read higher-level books. Adolescence is also a critical time for developing social skills. Mild language problems can impact a student’s ability to do any of these. Talk to your child’s teachers and school counselors. They will know the appropriate course of action to take, as well as services available in your area and through the school. Your child’s doctor can also refer you to a specialist.
How can I help my child fit in at high school?
Feeling like you belong is an important part of growing up. Some students have difficulty with social skills, making it difficult for them to interact with their peers, teachers, and other adults. These products help encourage students to understand and follow the "rules" of communication.
My child received speech and language services in elementary or middle school, but was discharged from speech therapy. Now that the academic expectations have increased, he/she is struggling again. What can I do?
Your child may have been discharged from speech in elementary school because he/she was not having any more difficulties in school. This does not mean that he/she cannot qualify for services in middle and/or high school. Most schools have student support teams (SST). These teams may be called different names, but they all basically have the same function—to identify struggling students and offer them support before they fail. In some cases the team may refer the student for a speech and language evaluation. The speech-language pathologist will evaluate the student’s communication skills and report back to the SST with the results. A school psychologist may also evaluate the child to assess how he/she learns new information. The team will review these results and make recommendations to support the student.
Do you have products that school psychologists and/or guidance counselors can use to encourage conversation?
Yes. These products are both appropriate for older students and promote conversation.
