This is the last in a series of support meetings that the FSSD Special Education department is hosting for parents of students with disabilities. However, all parents are welcome to this meeting! 

FSSD’s Behavior Consultant, Autism Consultant and Occupational Therapist will present this session on how to have a successful summer with your special needs children. Topics include: Staying on schedule, creating routines/procedures for the home setting, social opportunities and incorporating independent work & activities. They will also present academic resources to include: apps and other internet resources to use at home to promote academic skills, typing programs, talking to your child’s teacher (getting a list of sight words, what does a school day look like and how can you “re-create” a similar structure at home). The final topics include summer programs geared towards sports/recreation as well as those geared towards the creative arts.

Child care is available. Many of our special education teachers and paraprofessionals donate their time for you to attend this very important meeting. You do not need to make reservations for child care, but it would be beneficial if you would let us know how many children you plan to bring.

If you have any questions, please call FSSD Special Populations Supervisor Beth Farrar at 615/794-6624 or 615/238-1867.
