Your child is having trouble with reading. When you mention this issue to his teacher, she tells you "not to worry."
This teacher may also say you are "pushing your child beyond his/her academic abilities" when you question any lack of progress.
You may have requested that your child be tested by the school psychologist, only to be told the psychologist is "too busy." Additionally, the teacher may suggest that you "wait and see."
So, where does this leave a caring and dedicated parent like you?
Most likely, you feel stressed out, frustrated, and feel as if you are spinning your wheels.
THIS SITUATION IS NOT YOUR FAULT!
