Support from family members and collaboration between family and school are essential ingredients for a successful school experience. Providing students with appropriate support at home and at school can empower them to learn and foster improved self esteem. Educationplus reinforces the family-school connection in a variety of ways.
Educationplus offers families professional help to encourage a positive family-school connection. This can include school strategy meetings or teacher conferences to support a student. As necessary, it also can include design and implementation of an IEP (individualized educational program) with school adaptations and learning recommendations.
A key element of the family-school connection is the parent conference, designed to help parents better understand their children’s learning differences and enhance collaboration between parents and teachers. Topics covered at group parent conferences include home-study organization, study skills and strategies, learning differences, multilingualism and self-esteem issues. As necessary, individual parent consultations can be arranged to discuss specific issues.
