What happens when our kids can’t ask for help in the classroom?

In the blog post titled “Does it all comes down to the teachers?” we mentioned that self advocacy is a critical skill for our kids to attain in Elementary School. However, raising hands and clearly communicating their needs is not easy for some of them as abilities and circumstances are different in every case.

Many of our kids struggle when they need to look for the right words and the right moment to talk to their teachers. Adding to this is the fact that, (unfortunately) in some classrooms, the quietest students are praised more often.

But we can always try to encourage our kids to speak out!

The link I share today takes you to a guide of self advocacy sentence starters for students with ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia and DCD.

It was prepared by Understood, a non-profit organization “serving millions of families of kids who learn and think differently”. They produce fantastic tools, support and community for parents, educators, students and employers who learn and think in a different way.

I hope you find it as useful as I did.
