Health Tip: If Your Child's Grades Are Dropping

If your child is suddenly struggling with school performance, the cause may be a physical health problem.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says problems that may contribute to a drop in school performance include:

  • Having a sleep disorder, anemia or a thyroid condition.
  • Contracting infectious mononucleosis.
  • Having hearing or vision problems.
  • Having a learning or developmental disability, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia or a central auditory processing disorder.
  • Having a substance abuse problem.
