Family First: Learning RX

Posted: Friday, November 6, 2009 --- 4:10 a.m.

In today's family first, we're talking report cards.

We adults remember that feeling - nervous about taking home a grade or two that wasn't quite what mom or dad expected.

One local learning expert has advice for how to handle that and how to improve your kids performance.

" Talk to your classroom teacher. Get to know classroom teacher. Understand what's going on in your child's school day. "

Connie Nadler from Learning RX says getting to know your kids' teachers is key.

That way, you can be prepared for what you see on that report card - and do something about it.

" It's often there's an underlying thinking skill that's weak and needs to be strengthened. So your child might have a very mild attention problem for instance. "

Some signs of trouble, Connie says, are a child who is clearly frustrated by their school day, maybe complains a lot about their classes.

When you need a little extra help, Learning RX offers an assessment to pinpoint the exact cause of your child's learning problems, whether it's memory, logic or reading.

" What we want to do is intensely focus on these skills and make them stronger. "
