10 Things To Do BEFORE School Starts
A successful school year begins in July. An unsuccessful one begins the first day of classes. Set your child up for success by reviewing his IEP or 504 Plan, developing organization systems with him, communicating with teachers, and more during the summer months.
Review Your Child's Current IEP or 504 Plan
The accommodations our ADHD children receive will need to reflect the challenges of the new school year. Consider which educational goals have been met and remaining trouble spots. Schedule a team meeting before school starts. Bring report cards, notes from the teacher, tests — anything to illustrate your child’s current achievement levels. Discuss what worked last year and the accommodations and goals you’ll focus on this year.
