About Me Flyer
As a follow up activity to making a master plan for your child's education, we will work on creating an "About Me" flyer, showing strengths, interests, challenges, needs, and strategies for helping your child to be successful. Keep this flyer handy to present to new care providers, teachers, school staff (e.g., yard duty), and school volunteers.
Did you know that not everyone at school sees the IEP (Individualized Education Plan). It is essential for parents to take the lead in communicating IEP information with all relevant parties. The "About Me" flyer is a quick reference, but make sure the teacher, and any others who work with your child regularly at the school, have a full copy of the IEP and ask to meet with them to review it.
