Now that you’ve completed the checklist, you’re well on your way to understanding and addressing concerns about key skills and behaviors that impact learning. Even if you didn’t check many items on the list, you may still think the child is struggling in one or more of these areas. Bring your concerns to teachers and other professionals—that’s the first step to getting children the help they need to succeed. Don’t hesitate to ask whether support can be provided, or if a screening or comprehensive evaluation would be appropriate. Ask how to begin the process. Sharing what you’ve learned from this checklist can be a great starting point.
