Having Child's Reading Evaluated
How do you go about having a child's reading evaluated?
My sister noticed that my niece who is 6 (1st grade) & has always loved books & reading seems to be taking a very long time doing her homework. She's not sure if the amt of homework is extreme (she's been askign around & think it might be) AND/Or if her daughter is taking so long b/c she's having difficulty readig (whcih she also thinks is possible).
My sister isn't particularly fond of the teacher who has ignored some other issues. How should she address this & is there a way to have her daughter independently or school evaluated without involving the teacher who is more than likely to claim she's fine so as not to show any fault on her end for not having caught on to the problem earlier.
