I want to talk about your relationship as a parent with your child’s teachers and administrators. This can be tricky, and you will definitely benefit from the right approach, whether you are trying to get an IEP for your child, deal with the teacher who doesn’t seem to understand or ask for specific accommodations. Let’s start at the top. Your middle school child will have a homeroom teacher or advisor. The school probably told you in an email or on parent night (you did go to parent night, and meet your child’s teacher face-to-face, right?) that this person was the point person for you as a parent. Now, it doesn’t matter what you think of the homeroom teacher or the advisor – he or she may even be the problem – but you must go to that person first. Even if you know that to get what you want you will eventually have to talk to the middle school director or principal, go to your child’s homeroom teacher or advisor first.
Because there’s nothing like having that homeroom teacher or advisor on your side, and there’s nothing teachers like less than parents who go “over their heads” to the administration.
