Start the New School Year on the Right Foot!
New School Year
You and your child do not have to dread the first day of school. There are many things that you can do to ease the anxiety and prepare them for school. For example, before the first day of school, explain what services they will receive, the classes they will attend and any new activities that will take place.
In addition, to make the transition from summer to school easier, organization all paperwork, outline your calendar with any upcoming IEP meetings or events in advance and keep a communication log all the individuals that you are in contact with.
Finally, research any new special education terminology that you do not understand and read over your child’s IEP. This will help you to stay informed as the school year begins.
