Sample forms for teachers
As the school year begins, there is no more important task than identifying how communication will occur between home and school. In many ways, systems of communication can set the stage for how relationships unfold over the course of the school year. Establishing a trusting relationship between teachers and caregivers is critical, especially when working through challenges that may occur. The Indiana Resource Center for Autism has collected the following sample forms, which can be used to facilitate communication between home and school.
•Home-School Communication Forms for Students with Autism (Version One)
•Home-School Communication Forms for Students with Autism (Version Two)
Educators should keep in mind that whatever form they choose, positive comments should always outweigh negative comments. We wish you all the best for a wonderful school year experience. Enjoy your students on the autism spectrum. Each has many positive and wonderful gifts to share.
