CHADD Webinar: Communicating with Your Child’s Teacher
CHADD Webinar Highlight
Your Child’s Teacher
Featuring Linda Karanzalis, MS
The school year will begin soon. Many parents take the opportunity to just before school begins to reach out to their children’s new classroom teachers to establish a partnership for their children’s educations. They have learned that collaborating with their child’s teacher on their academic achievements, and by helping with homework and studying, they can make their child’s learning experience a gratifying one. They also know that teachers who have good support from parents will each out when students face challenges in academics or behavior and together they can put in place solutions before problems get out of hand.
Linda Karanzalis provides viewers with ways to introduce their child to a new teacher at the beginning of the school year. She discusses new ways to communicate with educators about how ADHD affects your child, how to highlight current accommodations that are in place, strategies that have and haven’t worked, and how to ask for and incorporate the teacher’s ideas into a good educational plan.
