I’m a mother of a wonderful 8-year-old boy diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. It’s been quite a journey for us, filled with ups and downs. One thing that has been really helpful is joining a local support group. Meeting other parents who are going through similar experiences has been invaluable.
I’ve been an educator in special education for over 15 years, and one consistent observation I’ve made is how crucial parental involvement is in a child’s learning journey. Regular communication between parents and educators can make a significant difference. Parents, don’t hesitate to reach out, ask questions, and provide insights about your child. You know them best, and your input is invaluable to us. Additionally, consider attending school meetings and workshops if they’re available. The more informed and involved you are, the better we can work together for the benefit of your child.
