Communicating with your school

 Quick Summary

Communicating effectively with your child’s school will greatly improve their chances of educational success. This can often be challenging, as you may be working with a number of different people including teachers, aides, other therapists and support staff. As a parent, you know your child better than the teacher and can give valuable insights into strengths, interests, needs and areas of concern. You can share medical information, any changes or difficulties at home, past school experiences and techniques you are using at home. These things are helpful for the teacher and school to know. It is important to establish a means of communicating that works for you and your child’s teacher, whether it is by regular meetings, email or over the phone. Keep communications brief and courteous. Volunteering can help to create a strong parent-teacher relationship, and helping out in the classroom is a great way to support your child’s teacher.
