One of the best gifts you can give your child is a great foundation for kindergarten.  DSAH invites you to attend Smart Start – four sessions that will help you prepare for entering kindergarten. Smart Start is for you if you have asked yourself any of the following questions:

  • Will my child be safe?
  • Will my child be included?
  • Will my child have friends?
  • Will my child succeed?
Take the opportunity to ask questions, learn about local resources, and meet other parents whose children are also preparing to enter kindergarten. Session 1: Student Readiness - high expectations, following rules and directions, handling schedule changes, insistence on compliance Session 2: Parent/School Relations - communicating effectively, common mistakes, addressing concerns, what your teacher needs to know Session 3: Placements & IEP's - IQ testing, inclusion, Individual Education Plans and meetings, creating IEP goals Session 4: Fostering Friendships -social skills for success, creating social opportunities, successful play dates, community activities, peer presentations
