Dear Special Ed Teacher,
Yes, my daughter talks. But she can't really tell me about her day at school. Please give me a note. DAILY! Parents thrive on information about their children. Sending her off to school with a complete stranger is enough anxiety for me already, so please tell me about her day. I'm not asking for a novel, but something that can make me picture her day.
Did she cry? Did she eat? Did she play with children? I need to know these things. All of the artwork is cute, but my daughter doesn't sit for more than 3mins, and she has deficiency in her fine motor skills- so what is she doing during this time of crafts?? We are working on potty training- I need to know how this is going in school as well.
She is getting PT, OT and speech- I have heard no feedback except from the speech therapist. I don't think this is asking too much. Shouldn't the therapists be advising me what they are working on, so I can incorporate it at home?
Lia started singing a song last week that I had never heard. It turns out it is the Welcome Circle Time song at the beginning of school. This was my biggest glimpse into Lia's day at school so far.
So please, dear teacher, write me a few sentences daily. Let me know how the day is going- good, bad, whatever- I want to know these things. And I don't want to become an annoying parent in asking- I just want it given to me.
A concerned loving parent, not trying to be annoying :)
