Partnering with Your Child’s School: A Guide for Parents

key information

source: The HSC Foundation

year: N/A

summary/abstract:

The booklet is designed to help parents of children who have been diagnosed with health or mental health care needs to learn about available resources and to develop a partnership with their children’s school.

Being a parent to a child with health or mental health care needs can be difficult and exhausting. The parent is the child’s primary caregiver and the key to his or her success. Therefore, it is very important that the parent learns as much as he/she can about the child’s condition and needs, and develops partnerships with the child’s doctors, therapists, and school staff. A parent is a child’s best advocate and must be informed to be successful.
