So with meetings lined up with three high schools, I needed to turn my vision of inclusion into something to drive discussion and decision making. I like structure and colour so used my mind mapping software to map out all the things that I need to know about,
I shared this with the educational psychologist who would be accompanying me on these visits. I think it’s important to be open and up front about what you want and I have learned to trust and rely on the ed psych.
From this he prepared a discussion list to be shared with the schools prior to the visit. I reviewed it and made small amendments before it was sent. To be honest it was helpful to have someone to put it into a summary as even though I work in a school I found it daunting.
So now some questions. Have you gone through this or other stage transition? What questions would you ask? Is there any improvements you could suggest to me?
