For some students, a concept doesn’t stick the first time it is taught. Remediation means going back and learning the skill that was missed, along with all the subsequent skills missed as a result. A tutor or teacher’s aide may provide remediation, or the child’s teacher may be able to provide remediation in a small-group setting. Parents can also help at home.
