Reading the "tips for parents" section makes me realize that it is the parent's responsibility to take an active role in helping their children identify reading problems and finding resources. I have always been under the impression that it was the school's responsibility but now I know there are many things parents can do to facilitate the process in and outside of schools. This can be very stressful for parents because there can be shame involved when seeking help from people outside of the family as well as cultural barriers that slow the process. While seeking help for students, parents should also seek help for themselves by speaking to counselors about their personal concerns and stresses. Help groups are another way for parents to connect with each other, share concerns, and find support from people who are having similar experiences.
