Academic health is a term that I have started to use for the state of a student's overall school experience. It deals with the manner in which the way a student performs academically, affects the rest of their school experience.
In my own experience with my child, a consistent feeling of defeat, and consistent feedback that she was not trying hard enough, wreaked havoc on her social life, mental, and ultimately physical health.
It is important that you stay in tune with social and mental cues that your child may be displaying, as to address them early.
If you have noticed that your child may be experiencing some of this, please contact us, so we can advocate in their behalf. They may be dealing with a disorder that requires assessment. We can help.
