Today’s post is for the parents- Do you know how valuable and important you are to your child’s learning??
We need you to teach us about your child, give us input, and support the school journey. We need you on the team. You may have lots of meetings with us or only come in for parent teacher conference, but make sure you come! Your questions, your insight, and your dedication shapes the journey too. When your child needs a little or a lot of extra support- we need you there to advocate.
As a parent, I get how frightening it is sending your kiddo off everyday when they need the support. You worry about if they are getting it, is it the right support, how do I help, and are we doing everything. You are not alone!
Some meetings can be draining- the school system is as clear as mud and emotions often run high. The second one is ok- the first one is not. You should understand your child’s journey whether it is PSP or individualized. Ask for clarity and ask for a parents guide to the program planning process.
Better yet, find someone you trust to help answer your questions and to help inform you. Teachers, friends, family, anyone who can explain and explore the process with you. We need you on the team & your child really needs you.
Shout out to all the awesome parents who advocate for their children and support the education journey. 😘
PS- stay tuned for the release of our parents guide and parents school year planner.... they will pop up on our TPT store this summer
