Collaboration with the parents


The partnership between parents of children with special
needs and the school community is vital in the creation of a
positive schooling experience. In order to achieve the best
possible environment and equal learning opportunities the
parents need to have both formal and informal
communication with the teacher, principal and support staff.

Kids IQ test (Learning Skills)

Scores obtained can help persons with self-awareness, self-understanding and making plans for schooling and/or
career choices. Reports can be used by professionals as well, as in assessing for career planning, school placement
and problem diagnosis. For example, when diagnosing ADHD, learning disabilities and dyslexia, it is important to
rule out mental retardation.
