“My daughter is 8 and she still has trouble counting. Why is she struggling so much?”
Many children have trouble with math, but some students find it more difficult than others. These may be otherwise bright children who have a keen sense of logic and reasoning but still perform poorly on homework, tests, and quizzes. Children who have trouble with math are often trying really hard, they just need more and better support to improve.
But why is your daughter/son struggling so much with math? What could be the reason? What causes your child to have trouble with math?
It’s important to try and identify the reasons early on. Given the right combination of classroom accommodations and learning strategies, every child can achieve their full potential in math.
