Sometimes students struggle with homework because of learning difficulties, not because they don’t want to do the work. If you suspect this, act at once. Some options include contacting the teacher, calling the special education department and requesting a neuropsychological evaluation, you the parent working with your student at home, or calling a Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor to catch them up and move them forward.
The written teacher evaluation and classroom observation information will help clarify the potential causes of a child’s difficulty in the classroom. In order to help a child, the teacher and the parents must consider many possible causes for the student’s difficulty. Without a careful evaluation, a child may be inappropriately labeled as a “behavior problem” or “special needs”.
An extremely important thing to note is the child should not be told they are personally being observed. People that know they are being observed tend to step up their game. The teacher should notify the students that someone is visiting the class to observe the teacher or may have a student in the class next year and seeing how they do things.
Is your student mislabeled as special needs or a behavior problem? Tomorrow we will address this as our series on classroom difficulty continues.

An exercise ball that would usually be found in a gym is a great substitute for the traditional school chair. Sitting on this giant ball requires the student to sit in the proper posture to stay balanced. This forces them to use their core muscles. When students are using their energy to actively sit, they tend be more attentive and focused.
Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME’S ADHD QUIZ #7: EATING FISH
Q: True or False: Pregnant women who eat lots of fish are more likely to have children with ADHD?
A: True. Initial research suggests that pregnant women who eat lots of fish – especially tuna, swordfish and other fish with high mercury levels are more likely to have children with ADHD. Researchers from the Boston University School of Public Health tracked 788 Massachusetts children between 1993 and 1998. Then they had the children’s mothers keep food diaries while they were pregnant so they could see how much fish the women ate. They took hair samples from them after they gave birth so they could test their mercury levels.
Eight years later, they asked the children’s teachers if the kids exhibited ADHD-like symptoms, such as hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness. The researchers concluded that the women who had the most mercury in their hair were 60% more likely to have a child who exhibited ADHD-like behavior.
