The past year was tough, confusing, and emotionally draining for students (and their parents). Pandemic learning arrangements tripped up and, in some cases, halted kids’ progress in school. A year and half after mastering Zoom, many students will return to school in the fall with a more typical, in-person schedule.

What can and should parents do to help their children recoup the learning losses of the past year and prepare for the new school year? What are some of the most effective ways to make this coming school year more productive and positive for your student?

Learning experts Susan and Paul Yellin discuss the key things that parents and students can do right now to help the new school year get off to a strong start.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Review your child’s IEP/504 Plan to make sure it is still working—and what to do if it is not
  • Maximize your child’s medication (if they are taking it) for the new school schedule
  • Engage in a subject-by-subject review of last year’s instruction — what went well and where things fell apart
  • “Frontload” content in the most challenging classes
  • Spend time cultivating areas of strength, talent, and affinity
  • Work on strengthening an area of challenge
  • Use online tools to fill skill gaps in math, reinforce recent learning, and preview upcoming materials
  • Develop a “growth mindset” to help build resilience and self-esteem
