Data from Home

I had the opportunity to participate in a webinar yesterday hosted by the Council of Parents, Attorneys, and Advocates (COPAA). Various renowned special education attorneys discussed aspects of distance learning and the rights students still hold regarding a Free, Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). I’ve spoken about data before, but something attorney Wayne Steedman said stuck out to me: data shows progress. Steedman mentioned that it is imperative for parents to collect data during this time of distance learning. He suggested asking your child’s teacher for tips on how to collect data, sample data sheets, and what to focus on. If your child is making the same level of progress they made in the traditional school setting, great! If they are making less progress, you can problem solve with your child’s IEP team. And, if your child is making more progress at home, you have objective information to use in asking for more or different services once traditional school resumes. If you need help interpreting the data you take for your child, I can help!
