School Transitions

Transitions and change from one school to another can be overwhelming for both twice-exceptional children and their parents.  It is typically an adjustment. The support looks differently at all levels, elementary, middle and high school. When your student transitions from elementary to middle school and from middle school to high school, know that you as a parent have a right to call a meeting with everyone who will be working with your child to find out what supports and services the new school has in place that will be implemented for your student.
