School Problems

A large number of parents seek assistance from a licensed professional therapist when their child or teen is struggling with school performance problems or truancy. A Pathways child therapist or family therapist can aid in the determination of the cause(s) of the problems.

One or more of these signs may be present

Behavior problems with teachers and other students

Poor grades

Difficulty with study habits

Tardiness or skipping school

Fear of taking tests

Bullying or being bullied

Faking illness to avoid school

Known mental health issues such as ADHD, ADD, and OCD

Conflicts escalating to heated verbal or physical violence

Pathways Psychological Services counseling can assist in addressing the root cause before months of school problems become years of frustration for all involved.

What should I do?

Children sometimes have physical or biological problems that are not obvious and can interfere with school. Please talk with the child’s doctor to have them evaluated for any physical conditions that might explain problems at school.
