Subject: Dear Teacher, I would like you to meet my child...

At this time of year, rather than enjoying the lazy days of summer, many families who are impacted by Learning Disabilities are beginning to feel anxious about the upcoming school year.

Questions start to plague parent and student alike – Will my child’s teacher understand Learning Disabilities? Will she read my child’s IEP from last year and begin accommodations from the beginning of September? Will she understand that my child is not lazy, stupid or slow?

Great suggestion! In our experience we have found it to be a good idea to keep the letter to one page, if possible.

Bulleted items of strengths and talents, as well as a listing of accommodations/modifications and their benefit might also be beneficial to include.

Thank you for your feedback.

Yes, bulleted points are more pleasing to the eye, sets important information apart and makes it easier to find pieces more quickly when needed.
