Successes and Celebrations
Back to school is here! We’d like to take a moment to celebrate all KU families. Back to School is a busy and often stressful time for families. We saw all parents working hard to prepare their children for back to school in ways that work best for their children. From picking up your child’s favourite items, to talking about the transition, to implementing visuals and social stories, to setting up new routines and schedules- there is so much to celebrate! Take a moment to give yourself a pat on the back.
To all the children going back to school- starting the school routine again can be really challenging. You might have entered a new classroom, met some new classmates, have a new EA or you might even be at a whole new school. We are so proud of you!
We’d liketo highlight 2 young boys who have great back to school successes. One boy made his own first day of school video to show his family Our team loved that he was able to share this with us. Another boy was able to tell his mom that he feels his new teacher “really gets [him]”. So happy he is understood and feels connected to his new teacher!

Do you have a million things to get done? Things can pile up with the focus on the back-to-school transition. Your child could help! Consider involving your child in helper tasks. This also helps keep him/her busy while you can focus on getting some of these things done around the house. We’ve attached a tipsheet for involving your child in some “helper tasks” around the house. Another bonus is that some of these tasks can support the development of your child’s motor skills, support executive functioning and more!
