Always give positive praise for things that she is doing….just be there…encourage the use of strategies, accommodations in the 504 to overcome weaknesses that are holding her back. Advocate for her in the school…and teach her to advocate for herself. Encourage her to find her passions…this school journey is hard but if our kids can determine what is important to them, what they want to do in the future, then they can understand that this journey is an end to a means. Good for you for understanding the importance of supporting her.
