teachers passing out papers to kids in classWhen you purchased your school supplies, we hope you bought a three-ring binder for yourself.

You will use this binder to organize your child's file.

Now that school has started, you will begin to receive

  • reports from teachers
  • notes from administrators
  • samples of work
  • results of evaluations
  • evidence of problems or concerns
  • other school related documents

After you organize the information about your child into a file, you will have a clearer understanding of your child's disability and needs.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how review your child's records and organize the file. Find where to start, what supplies you will need, and how to request records and develop your Master Provider List.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.
