Clip to ScrapBook #2

I would suggest that she talk to her child's doctor about the concerns. I would give her concrete suggestions to improve the homework experience. Could the child write the spelling words on strips of paper, arrange them in ABC order, and then glue them down? I remember my own (ADD) son getting VERY frustrated when he realized he had made a mistake and had to erase lots of words and start again. (He also had fine motor challenges). You could check that she is not letting the child watch t.v. before finishing homework, etc. Some things that seem commons sense, are not in every household. I would mention that the academic expectations are going to increase next year, and you are really concerned that she will be ready.
