"The school does special testing to discover why your child is doing poorly in school. When they find auditory problems, you have an audiologist rule out the possibilities of sensory-neural or conductive hearing loss including ear wax build-up. There is no physical problem. What is next? I highly recommend this inexpensive workbook. Students develop skills of attending, listening, and recalling a series of numbers, letters, and words. This helps them memorize number facts, equations, lists of words for any subject, and the sequential order of letters for spelling. " --Betsy Lee, School Psychologist / School Counselor
