Message for Parents
Job Number One
Help your child understand that attending school every day is important. Whenever possible, schedule doctor's appointments and other commitments after school hours.
Try to take family vacations during school breaks.
Are you concerned your child may have a developmental delay?
Parents know their children best and are constantly informally assessing whether or not their child is “on track” developmentally for their age. Just about every parent has had at least one moment where they worried about whether their child was developing at a healthy pace. But what do you do when your worry becomes more than just a passing concern?
Well child visits help detect some developmental delays, but often times they are undetected until a child enters kindergarten because parents often don’t know what to look for. At that time, school districts begin to work closely with the Special Services Department at ESD 123 to provide a range of services to schools and communities with special needs students. These services may include many types of related services for a student such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, feeding therapy, therapy for sensory disabilities such as vision impairment and deaf and hard of hearing, and school psychologists. In addition, the Special Services Department also supports the training needs of its districts within the region, as well as consultation with school staff, program reviews and program compliance work with OSPI.
Get Back Into the School Year "Groove" With These Tips
With the start of school comes new routines, schedules and priorities. These simple ideas will help you and your family gear up for a great school year:
- Make a plan for after -school activities. Schedule adequate time for homework, play, clubs, sports and practice.
- Scale back TV time.
- Establish a family reading time.
- Reestablish bed times for school nights.
- Keep a large calendar. Mark each family member's activities in a different colored pen.
- Start a change jar so you'll have spare lunch money on hand.
- Collect important phone numbers. Update doctor, work, and other listings for the school office, after-school program and a neighbor.
- Use "IN" and "OUT" boxes. Label one shoe box "IN" and another shoe box "OUT". Have your child put homework assignments in the in-box. They can put their completed work, permissions slips, etc., in the out box after you've looked them over. At bedtime, have them put the items in the outbox into their backpacks.
- Get children in the habit of getting ready the night before school. Set out clothes, pack lunch and put the backpack by the front door.
