Help Your Child Succeed

We know you’re willing to do what it takes to help your child succeed, but you don’t always know what to do. Here are some helpful tips that may aid you in your search to meet your child's special needs.

  • Learn all you can about your child's special needs.

  • Learn as much as you can about your legal rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

  • Try to learn as much as you can about supports and services that can help you and your child.

  • As a parent or caregiver, it is important to make sure that your child's education and environment meet his or her special needs.

  • Ask for changes if something is not working.

  • Imagine goals and dreams for your child and talk about them with others who know your child.

  • Your child has special abilities and talents. Use your child's abilities to create a plan to make their dreams come true.

  • You know your child best; set goals he/she can reach.

  • Keep notes of your child's progress.

  • Get the support you need by joining a support group or talking to other parents, friends, or family members you can trust.

  • Remember that brothers and sisters of children with special needs need support and attention, too.

  • Include your child with special needs in activities with all children, both with and without special needs.

  • Gather as much information as you can about programs your community offers children your child's age.

  • Be sure to look at your whole child—your child's strengths as well as the areas for which your child needs supports and services.
