I know a child who is in standard seven at present and he faces a lot of issues in comprehending things easily. He is unable to read and write as a child of his age would do. He has no basic knowledge of his curriculum subjects and it is very difficult to teach him. His mother is not keeping well these days and his father is busy with his work. There is not much attention paid to the child. In such a case, what should be done to help the child? As if he does not cope right now he will lag way behind his counterparts. Does he need professional help?
