No one can be more of an expert on a child's needs than their parents or primary caregiver. Becoming an advocate for your child is the biggest role you will play in the success of your child's education. Often, upon re-entry, students will experience difficulty adjusting to the academic and social expectations of the school setting, and become overwhelmed. Consequently, students may become withdrawn from their studies, isolate themselves from their peers, fail to reach their full potential, and be a drastic contrast to the child you knew before diagnosis.
To help prevent such situations, our Director of Education will work with you in developing an accommodations plan to meet the academic and social needs of your child to share with school staff. Together, the parents, professional advocate, and school staff will develop and implement necessary services to help your child be successful. Most services are rendered through a 504 plan or IEP, federal laws that ensure appropriate access to the curriculum and the development and tracking of specific goals, respectively. Attached are websites that provide parents with valuable information related to 504’s, IEP’s, and the current progress of your child’s school and how it ranks among schools across the country.
www.wrightslaw.com - Parents, educators, advocates, and attorneys come to Wrightslaw for accurate, reliable information about special education law, education law, and advocacy for children with disabilities.
www.greatschools.net - This is a comprehensive website that offers information for parents ranging from "great parenting" to "learning disabilities" to "choosing the right school".
Many of our students miss valuable classroom instruction due to doctor’s appointments and symptoms related to their diagnosis and treatment, such as suppressed immune system (e.g. fever) and low blood counts (e.g. fatigue). Out tutoring service is designed to help students keep up with their schoolwork and master the curriculum. We currently have three after school tutoring locations to help meet the needs of our students across the valley, including the Torino Foundation Classroom at Sunrise Children’s Hospital, Summerlin Library, and Centennial Hills Library. We have over 50 volunteer CCSD teachers and student tutors from A-Tech High School assisting in the instruction of our students.
