5 Factors that Inhibit a Child's Performance in Class

    Rationale: In writing this blog submission I have come to realize it sounds quite negative. I apologize for that. However, every “Symptom” listed here is an actual situation I saw with one or more students during my career. Other teachers expressed very similar issues, too.
