Parents as Advocates (2010)

The goal of this guide, prepared by the Learning Disabilities Association of Yukon, is to help parents support their children’s in-school learning by becoming effective advocates for them. The authors point out that parents know under what conditions their children behave well or badly and they are in the best position to make those patterns known to their children’s teachers.

The authors have included tips for communicating effectively with teachers by avoiding generalizations; speaking in a positive, nonthreatening way; and keeping the focus on the child.
