Like most parents, I am nervous as the first day of school approaches. As a way for his new teacher to get to know him, I wrote a letter to them. While on an Autism panel, a parent mentioned having a letter for their daughter's teacher. I stumbled upon this clever idea from Clubhouse.
What a neat idea, and it's perfect for teachers to be able to understand my son. I have included my letter below for your reading pleasure. You can also find a template on Autism Dad's website here https://www.theautismdaddy.com/a-letter-to-my-new-special-needs/
My letter was changed to make it more personal for my son. Zachariah is attending school for the first time, and it's not a virtual school. I am excited for him to begin this adventure. Nevertheless, as his mother, I want to make sure that all his needs are met? Additionally, I prepared a list of questions for his new teacher.
