When parents are in denial the only thing you can do is document everything and leave a long paper trail so that someday they can see that the issues have been ongoing. Don't sugarcoat anything, especially academic. Yes, praise gains but also state clearly that the child is not meeting expectations and exactly what they should know vs what they do know at each report.


If the student really does have some learning disabilities, retention is not going to help. Moving him on so he gets tested and diagnosed will.
