Throughout your journey with your child, you will have many educators come in and our of your life.... USE THEIR EXPERTISE! Take full advantage of what they know and what they have experienced. Ask lots, and lots of questions. Below you will find five key questions to ask. Ask these questions often!
Since your child has started getting services, you have probably had your fair share of educators come into your life, and sometimes into your home. In Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings and IFSP meetings, we often say that we work together as a team to help your child. However, many times there is a disparity between the parent and the teacher. Working with your child’s teacher will help them reach their maximum potential. The biggest tip I can give you is that you need to communicate. Communicate often! Communicate at least weekly or even daily.
