If you are struggling to work with parents who are unable to build on behavioral strategies you are using in school, this is the resource for you! Created while working as a Behavior Consultant using parts of forms I created as an Itinerant Support Teacher, these surveys will guide you in working with more challenging (or challenged) parents.
*Note - no preview, but see below for detailed description and see thumbnails for format
Included are 4 surveys:
1. Parent Survey - Guided questions to help parents define their priority behavior goals and facilitate discussion with the teacher.
2. Home/School Communication Goals - Guided questions for both parents and teacher to answer regarding expectations for school/home communication (and transfer of strategies).
3. Home/School Communication Goals Contract - Framework for using the above information to create a "contract" for communication. This is especially useful for parents who struggle to remain involved, yet also struggle with understanding the teacher's role.
4. Parent Compromise Worksheet - If you are finding meetings challenging because parents are not agreeing on priority issues/behaviors, this guided survey will give them a framework for problem-solving and coming to an agreement. As a teacher, it can also give you insight on their priority behaviors.
This is a 4-page word document that is open for customization to your individual student/parent needs. I have used this successfully for parents of students aged 5 to 11, and I see no reason why it wouldn't work for even older students displaying challenging behaviors!
