It's reassuring to know that Kapp understands David. If the classroom teacher is unsure of how to help my son, Kapp steps in with a solution. When David struggled to write a story for a project, she offered to type his story as he dictated it, organizing the sentences and paragraphs as she went along. David was proud of the finished product.
Kapp also serves as an advisor to David's father and me. If we have concerns about David's progress, she offers insights and solutions. When we decided to use a behavior chart to help David complete his work in class, for example, she helped develop the chart and offered to "test it" in her own classroom.
Are we lucky to have found Kapp? Of course. But chances are, you can also find a teacher who will make a difference in your child's life. As I found out, developing partnerships with teachers can make school an easier experience for everyone.
Before befriending Kapp, David had felt anxious about school. When I would visit him during lunch or recess, his body and face seemed tense. Now he looks forward to the one-on-one time with Kapp and has relaxed a little. Are our problems solved? Not completely. But as David's favorite comic-strip characters point out, it's more fun to get through your day with a trusted friend by your side.
