Here is a link to it:
But even with this resource, I’m always wondering about how much I should share. It’s a very vulnerable position to be in and it’s important to disclose enough to get the support we need, while at the same time, trying to protect his privacy.
Last year I tried to be vague and things didn’t go so well. We had a lot of problems with the math teacher. But after an emergency 504 meeting later into the school year I got a little more real and revealed more details about my son’s disorder and how it related to his challenges at that time, particularly his depression. After that meeting we saw a major improvement with the math teacher’s attitude toward our son. He was more attentive and helpful and seemed to be on board with the plan.
But here I am again, a new school year, with a new principal (yay!) and all new teachers and I find myself asking, how much do I disclose?
So I thought I would toss that question out to you, I along with a few other parents that are reading this blog would love to know how you navigate this line of disclosure. Please tell us, how much do you share with your school?
