How to Set up Your Special Education Student for Success

How to Set up Your Special Education Student for Success
Posted By: Anica Oaks on July 07, 2021

The federal laws that help your special needs child are the first step in the process of setting up your child for success in the classroom. They have rights and assistance. The part that's missing is your part in the steps forward. If you have questions about your child's rights, contact your school district or the state to get a copy of the law. Here are some tips to help prepare your child.

Know the Process

Your child might have stress or anxiety about this too. You can help your child by sharing what the process will be in the classroom. Share the IEP (Individual Educational Plan) with them. This document lists the daily plan and the rights your child has. When they know what will happen, the stress and anxiety will decrease. That helps with their success.

Check in Often

This does not mean that you will have to be at school all the time. What it does mean is the way you ask your child how they are doing. Checking in often will allow your child the chance to voice feelings. Those feelings are the things that make most special needs problems happen. Your child will have emotional outbursts more when you don't check in.



So check in with your special education student often.

Special Education Tutoring

In some situations, your child might need extra help that the school simply cannot provide. Classes are large. Even if the school has assistants for the teachers, they can become overwhelmed and leave your son or daughter lacking something that they need. Special education tutoring is the way to go. A special needs tutor can meet with your student and help guide them through the detailed steps that they need that the teacher can't.

Attitude

The last thing that can really help your student succeed at school in special education is to model a positive attitude towards them. When you check in, ask what new things they have learned to do since the year began. Tell your child that they have reached a goal. Really celebrate each milestone in an age-appropriate way. Keep a chart if it's applicable. Give rewards for reaching each goal. Really celebrate each and every step of success. That's what motivates your special education student the most.

Your special education student will succeed with the right support system. The tutors and positivity all work together to achieve success. You've got this. So does your special education student.
