(2.17) How can I explain to my child why he is being assessed?

You may want to explain that you and your child’s teachers believe that he is not learning as much as he can. Then, you could individualize the explanation by giving a simple example of his difficulty. You could point out that each child is unique and that everyone learns in a different way. Some learn by hearing; some learn by seeing; and some learn through their sense of touch. Explain to him that assessments will show how he learns best, so his teacher can help him learn more.
