How You Can Help… Create a quiet work area at home. Encourage your child to read every day. Encourage your child to recall & utilize learned strategies and skills related to reading, writing & vocab. Please proofread work by pointing out mistakes, but not fixing them; encourage “read alouds”. Encourage them to SELF-ADVOCATE as much as possible. Donations of supplies and tissues are always very much appreciated!
