As the parent perception of the school improves, and stronger ties are created a deeper commitment is put forth towards the importance of learning. However, some parents do not feel comfortable coming to school and meeting with teachers. “Poor parents are far less likely to be involved in school-based activities and far less likely to meet with educators due to this sense of intimidation and past negative experiences” (Machen, Wilson and Notar, 2005, p. 15). As educators, we must work diligently to see that all families feel welcome on campus so that overtime, parents will become more aware of what their child is learning and how best to help them outside of…

    Schools are demanded to create programs or activities to encourage parents to get involved. Conant (2013) implies the minimum time that parents take to complete homework or attend a parent meeting contribute to students’ academic achievements. Teachers’ priorities are to improve the learning environment and the learning instructions, in order for every child to improve their academic performance.

    Furthermore, teachers should keep desks clear, give colour organisers and use peer buddies if necessary. “Building this routine into the lesson can greatly enhance comprehension of students with learning disabilities” (Bender, 2008, pg. 53).

Teachers need to support children with SEN in every lesson so this could be challenging as whole class teaching might be taking place rather than intervention.…

One in sixty-eight children have ASD and some of the benefits of a special education are having a stronger memory, dedication and willingness to listen to others.
