- Parents need to notify the school what medication their child with cerebral palsy is taking (if any) and let them know if their child requires assistance taking their medication.
- Parents and teachers should try and make themselves available for discussion with each other regarding the child's learning progress for all facets of school done activities. Also, as a parent, it is helpful for teachers to know the type, severity, and symptoms of cerebral palsy that the child has.
- Prior to the school year starting, or early on in the school year, parents should discuss with the teacher, different areas of interest, strengths, and successful strategies that are used at home for the child. This allows a better prepared teacher to create successful inclusive learning activities along with proper differentiated instruction for the child.
- Educate yourself about cerebral palsy so that you can help them prepare for the future and give them independence in as many scenarios as possible.
- Do not be ashamed to ask for help from support systems, health care providers, financial aid supports that go out to your child (at low or no cost to you). This will help allow your child to have the necessary resources that can better prepare them for not only school but for life in general.
