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.

Organize School Systems Together

Determine your child's biggest organizational challenges and come up with solutions before classes begin. Visit an office supply store and check out the materials designed for organizing papers, supplies, and time. Choose systems that will be easy enough for your child to manage at school and at home.  For example, if you know he loses his homework, buy pocket folders and label them for work to be completed on the left, finished work on the right.

>> If he can't find books in his locker, use the locker shelves to organize books by when his class is in the day.
