Third Grade Retention Risk – Parents, Focus on Reading Comprehension
If your child is at risk for third grade retention, reading comprehension and anxiety are likely to be two of the key issues. The key point is that parents can avoid third grade retention by having the right mindset, getting the right assessment and partnering with the right professionals to significantly improve your child’s reading comprehension and test scores. We have had over a 97% success rate at helping parents to help their child improve their reading comprehension and test scores. Our real goal is to help your child to be far better prepared for 4th grade and beyond
We know that if your child is at risk for third grade retention, your child has some combination of a learning difference (i.e. your child learns best when he or she sees and experiences information) and has either an attention, eye-teaming (i.e. skips words and lines when reading) and/or has an anxiety challenge.

Understanding Third Grade Retention Risks and Your Options
We offer three ways to learn more about how you can help your child to understand why your child may be at risk for avoid third grade retention. These include:
- A no Cost Success Assessment that screens for a learning difference and attention and eye-teaming issues. Do this assessment with your child — their answers may surprise you
- Call us at 561-361-7495 for a no cost Stress to Success Assessment where we will explain the risks and ways you can help your child succeed
- We offer an in-office Focus Assessment that includes:
- Assessing your child’s present leading comprehension level – we often find that a child at risk for third grade retention has a reading comprehension level that is well below grade level — the good news we can often significantly improve your child’s reading comprehension in months not years
- Assessing for an attention, eye-teaming and anxiety challenge. Parents have been shocked to see how quickly their child loses focus, that their child skips words and/or lines when reading, and/or that their child’s heart rate spikes when we even mention the third grade reading test. We have seen heart rates go from 90 to over 140 beats per minute when we just mention the test. Go to Focus Assessment to see the attention and eye-teaming assessments in action.
