Concerned About Your Child’s Learning?

Episode 19, Season 1 | February 18, 2021

Show Notes

Teachers are usually on the front lines of our child’s well-being, noticing learning, behavioral or attention challenges, supporting them in the classroom and relaying them to us as parents. With our kids learning from home, it’s much harder for teachers to identify and defuse potential causes for concern. While many parents are busy with their own work and responsibilities, there are some red flags to be aware of that may indicate your child is struggling with more than just slouching over a screen. In today’s podcast episode, CHC’s Chief Schools Officer, Chris Harris, MEd, helps us distinguish between learning differences and Zoom-fatigue; collaborate with teachers to ensure our child’s needs are being met; weigh the pros and cons of transferring schools; and keep goals and outcomes realistic.
