VIDEO: Why Do Parents Need to Collect Data During Distance Learning?
While speaking about legal rights, district collaboration, and FAPE during our recent Distance Learning 2.0 panel, special education attorney and Special X legal consultant Grace Clark shared why it’s important and helpful to collect data about your child’s learning progress at home.
Key takeaways: Recording your child’s progress is one of the best ways to create attainable and appropriate goals for your child. It’s also okay to just record that your child is not progressing! By keeping track of any challenges, you can note what accommodations or modifications may be needed to make distance learning work for your child and whether an IEP meeting is needed.
