Common Academic Difficulties in Teens:
- Change in grades or a sudden drop in grades
- Difficulty completing homework
- Lack of organization
- Test anxiety
- Feeling overwhelmed by school tasks
- Not wanting to go to school at all!
- Fear of failure
Sometimes these issues are simply typical school struggles. Sometimes the jump from middle school to high school can really throw kids for a loop.
Other times, academic difficulties can be indicative of something else, like anxiety or depression. Your teen may need extra support if their struggles are really starting to impact their academic achievement, whether it is their grades
