How to Collaborate with Your Child's Teacher

Schedule a teacher meeting to understand your child's struggles with ADHD at school, and to establish rapport that builds bridges. Here's how to take the first steps toward better teacher collaboration.

Meeting Takeaways

Come out of this meeting with specifics for communicating with each other. You and your child’s teacher are partners in your child’s education and need to exchange information on a regular basis. Together you can decide which method is best. Some parents prefer a phone call once a week. However, if you choose to call, you won’t have a record of what was said. You might find that e-mails work best.

By the end of the meeting, you and the teacher should be clear on how you will communicate, how often communication will occur, and your child’s behaviors and challenges that need to be addressed.
