    another possibility

    Keep in mind that the parents may just be RELIEVED. Yes, they could be upset, but in some cases, the parents see the child struggling at home, and have their own concerns. You never know how a parent will react (I have to make one of those parent calls myself soon). The most important thing is to NOT make special ed. a bad possibility, but to phrase it as helping the child with additional support. Special ed. is NOT the end of the world for many parents; there are alot of us that are quite glad that our children receive services (I'm a teacher and the parent of special needs children).
    Document what you do for this child to help him/her keep up. There are guidelines for whom to talk to/what paperwork to fill out/ the process to follow in every school district. Ask someone in the special ed. dep't. to help you; that's what they do!
    Good luck.
