Parent Toolkit for a positive school year – from NCLD

by Mary Mazzoni on September 15, 2012

How’s the school year going so far?

Are you and your child developing positive relationships with teachers?

The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) has developed a free Toolkit for Parents that can help you collaborate with your child’s school to make this the best year ever.

What’s in the Toolkit?

Sections include:

  • Building a good relationship with your child’s teacher
  • Essential skills for becoming your child’s advocate
  • Advocating for your school-aged child
  • Making the most of a parent-teacher conference

The Toolkit includes simple worksheets that help you plan priorities and guide parent-teacher meetings in a positive, effective way.

Actively engage your child in using the simple tools and strategies included in the Toolkit right along with you – so that she can develop self advocacy skills.

The planning worksheets and tips are user-friendly and effective. I even know of a mom who used some of them to help her adult son prepare for a planning meeting with a vocational rehabilitation counselor.
