The inability to succeed in school can stem from several causes at once. A student may have a history of academic failure, poor motivation, or school avoidance. He or she may struggle with disorganized thinking, anxiety, overwhelming feelings of depression, self - dislike, or avoidant behaviors. Some students come to us with identified learning differences and the frustration that accompanies such difficulties. These feelings often lead to patterns of avoidant behavior or self-defeating thoughts or actions.
