The first full month of the school year is coming to a close, and hopefully that means your kids are enjoying their new teachers and classes. If your year has begun with a bit more of a struggle, our office is here to help! Below are some tips for starting the school year off on the right note.
- Create an open line of communication with your child's teacher--weekly email updates can be especially useful. If you aren't receiving regular communication regarding your child, ask the school to add a communication log as an accommodation.
- Ask for service logs to make sure your student's services are being provided as agreed.
- Request an IEP meeting to discuss any concerns you have with your child's progress or placement--you don't have to wait for the annual IEP!
- Request any additional assessments that you believe are necessary.
Always document any requests you make to the school
