Communicating with your child's school will prove to be a critical factor in your child's education. Your child needs you to represent her/him in terms of accessing supports, and keeping the school informed of her/his learning outside of school.
Suggestions for communicating with your child's school:
Request a meeting with your child's teacher & SNA
Discuss Classroom Support & School Support
Discuss what allocations will be given in order for your child's needs to be met effectively
Ask how you can be involved and how you can best support your child after school
Include your child in meetings in so much as is appropriate (be guided by your child's school)
Share copies of all reports (Speech & Language, Educational Psychology, Occupational therapy, previous school reports, etc etc) with your child's school.
By keeping communication channels open, parents and professionals can work as a team, resulting in a plan for how to best support your child and her/his individual needs.
