Want to know my favorite advocacy strategy? It’s something you can do on the first day of school with very little effort, and it will give you SO much insight! The tip: Go To School. No, I don’t mean that you need to go back to school! I mean, you need to march your little feet to your child’s school. Get involved. It will teach you so much about your child’s environment- the teacher, the classroom, the peers, the discipline style and behavior supports- all of it! When you volunteer at school, you not only learn a lot about the school environment, but you also get to teach the school about yourself and your family. You work on that teamwork that we all crave in the IEP setting! So, download the podcast and give a listen! Let me know what you think!!! And THEN – get to school!!!!!
