Preventing Your Child's Summer Slide

Hosted by Richard Selznick, PhD

This Health eTalk will provide parents with tips, strategies and suggestions of how to keep your children's minds active during their summer school break.

Commonly, the first few weeks back to school in the fall is spent re-teaching information forgotten over the summer. The transition from school to summer and then back to school can be difficult for families and may pose special challenges if your child has learning and/or attention problems.

Richard Selznick, Ph.D., Director of the Cooper Learning Center and author of The Shut-Down Learner: Helping Your Academically Discouraged Child, will answer your questions about your young students and provide ideas to engage your children this summer.
