How to Help My Child Prepare

A Parent’s Checklist

The TELPAS Alternate assessment is written specifically for students with significant cognitive disabilities who learn in unique ways. Meet with your child’s teacher to learn about resources that support your child’s unique learning mode.

Home to School Connection

The home to school connection is critical to achieve student success. Frequent two-way communication is necessary to offer feedback, share strategies that are working, determine if student support is sufficient or determine whether additional supports are needed.
