Communicating right at the start of the year is the first step to establishing a relationship with your child’s new team and helping the school team to unlock your child’s full potential. Your goals in this communication are to:
1. Describe your child so the team can hit the ground running without having to do a bunch of “get to know you” work and assessments.
2. Explain nuanced things about your child so your child isn’t frustrated while trying to explain something or to perform some task.
3. Start a pattern of communication that demonstrates your willingness to collaborate and also your interests and values.
