It’s conference time at many of our schools, and I want to chat with you about approaching them in a different light, especially if you have a right-brain thinker or a child with ADD or ADHD. While it’s crucial to hear the teacher’s feedback on how your child is doing in the classroom, it’s equally important to engage in a conversation about your child as a right-brain thinker.
You need to approach parent-teacher conferences with a positive mindset. They’re such a valuable time to get to know what’s happening in the classroom and how your child’s doing. Visual kids are intelligent and creative, but often disorganized and distracted, which can make for some hard times in the classroom. Whatever you’re anticipating good or bad, schedule a time to go visit with teacher.
Supporting, enhancing and enriching your visual child’s experience at school comes down to you. In episode 4, I cover 5 Ways to Become a Powerful Parent Advocate, the essential steps to guide your visual child to success.
