When Emma’s mother came to Student Advocacy with her 4th grade daughter, she felt she had nowhere else to turn. Emma was struggling tremendously in school and was 2 ½ years below grade level in reading and writing. Emma’s mother, who had immigrated to the United States shortly before Emma was born, had voiced conce­rns to Emma’s teachers for years but they seemed more troubled by her behaviors than her lack of academic progress.
