It’s tough to watch them work so hard and repeatedly fall short of their expectations. What’s standing in their way?  

In a webinar for the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), Amanda Vogel and Erin Doyle addressed three of the major “Hidden Barriers to Success” that they commonly see:

  • Test Anxiety
  • Processing Problems
  • Weak Executive Functioning Skills
