Tips to Help Your Child Get Caught up in School after an Illness.

Child SneezingThe flu season is still here, unfortunately.  Which means we have sick kiddos staying home from school.  It can be tough on a child to go back to school after an illness, especially when their immune system is down and they feel weak and tired.  Trying to get caught up with a mountain of homework when there has been missed instruction is even more frustrating.

Here are some tips to help kids get caught up after an illness:

  1. Communicate with the teachers that your child has been ill and ask them to pull together a packet of any missed assignments.
  2. Give your child an extra day of rest before they go back to school, so they are fully recovered and don’t relapse.
  3. Contact a guidance counselor or a point person to help your child navigate any missed assignments or missed instruction.
  4. Arrange with the teachers additional tutoring time, especially in core-classes such as science, math, and language arts, so they can get caught up on missed instruction.  This will help them to do their assignments.

Autism vs. Awesome-ism©
By Dr. Melodee Loshbaugh, Co-founder & Executive Director of Brock’s Academy, Woodinville, WA

>What if we decided to just open our minds and see things from a wider, more diverse perspective?

>What if we didn't easily label and categorize people that we perceive to be different than us?

>What if we learned to think about people and differences as not right or wrong, but just different gifts?

>What if we fully believed and accepted that there is, and always has been, neurodiversity (i.e. cognitive differences) in the world?

>What if we accepted that neurodiversity is a brilliant achievement of Mother Nature?

>What if we entered each day believing each one of us is uniquely created and here to serve a higher purpose?

>What if we believed our job is to support one another in achieving that higher purpose?

>What if our differences are here to teach us appreciation, compassion, acceptance and to challenge us to stay open to all?

>What would that be like? # # #

Ryan, a 14-year old autistic student, writes:
>Meet me where I am.
>Stop trying to fix me. I don’t try to fix you.
>See my gifts, talents and strengths, not things you think I should have; see the “me” I was born with.
>Learn from me. Sit with me. Try to see the world from my perspective.
>Love me unconditionally and find ways to support me in what I came here to contribute to the world.
>Appreciate me.
>Just because I am experiencing the world in a different way than you are doesn’t mean it’s wrong, so stop judging me.
>I am me and I am beautiful.
>I am happy and I am whole. # # #
