Your Child’s Education Team

Advocating for your child means being part of a team.  The members of your child’s education team will include you, your child’s classroom teacher, and other school personnel.

The school personnel on your child’s education team will change, but you will always be a member of your child’s education team.  This is why your role is so important and why it is your responsibility to become an effective advocate for your child.

You should also think seriously about finding a support person who is willing to attend school meetings with you.

You and the other members of your child’s education team need each other; neither can do the job alone.  Learning how to work as an equal team member will help to ensure the best services for your child.
