What We Learned from this Video:

  • Bullying can be a concern for special-needs children going to a public school.
  • The important thing is to find a school that suits your child’s immediate needs. They will be constantly changing and developing, so trying to find a school that will meet all of their future needs is not worth it.
  • Having someone who can work one-on-one with your child and who has experience dealing with the same disabilities can be a major help.
  • Communication between parents and teachers/school staff is paramount. If the teachers say that they do not have time for communication, consider finding a new school.

There are many factors at play when determining your child’s educational path. Taking all of them into consideration is important for ensuring the best possible education. Schedule a consultation with Ability Life Solutions so we can support you and your family on this journey.
