Learning Patch® Communication Books connect school and home.
Our Communication Books guide teachers, integration aides and parents to capture targeted information to:
- identify behaviours impacting learning
- set strategies to overcome learning obstacles
- track whether strategies are working
Communication Books prompt teachers and integration aides to comment on specific areas (e.g. “group work”). This can be done on a particular day each week, during a transition period such as adjusting to a new teacher, or on a daily basis.
Some teachers choose to only comment on a specific area that is agreed during PSG meetings. For example, the goal may be to track whether strategies are having a impact on “individual work” or on another area such as how a child uses their “unstructured time”. Our Communication Books encourage brevity.
The effectiveness of Communication Books relies on keeping a record of specific target areas, and being able to track specific pre-defined goals over time.
